    Incredible! So inspiring. Can’t wait until I can purchase your new book! I think two of my favorites are Steve McClure on Mutation and Monique Forestier tackles a hard and high. But, there are so many incredible images, love your work!

  • Richard says:

  • Hinrik Agustsson says:

    Hi, your photos are just great.
    I was wondering, do you have any pointers on taking photos inside a climbing gym?

    • Simon Carter says:

      Hi Hinrik
      Thanks. It’s hard to say, so much depends on what you are trying to show (the gym itself, or capture some action?) and the situation (many gyms are poorly lit). Most gyms are quite messy (visually speaking) so I’d try to clean it up using a longish lens and wide aperture and hone in on some actions — so that it is separated from the messy background. That could be one approach, but decide your vision first. Hope that helps.
      All the best, Simon

    great photos! amazing job!
    how did you decide to start this job?

    • Simon Carter says:

      Thanks Serena. It’s a long story but ever since I was 17 was into both climbing and photography, and had been interested in somehow combing them both. It was a long time, about 10 years after I finished school, before I decided to try it seriously/professionally. I was climbing full-time and basically decided there was nothing I’d rather do…

    Amazing photos!!
    I’m planning a trip to France, and I was wondering if there’s any chance to get the picture of Chloé Minoret in Le Denti (7c ), Goudes, Les Calanques, France at full size? I would love to use it as a Wallpaper for my notebook, so I can get more hype and motivation for my trip!!
