Photographer and IFMGA Alpine guide based in Chamonix and UK.

I work as an adventure photographer, artist and IFMGA mountain guide specialised in remote and cold environments. Having studied Fine Art to a postgraduate level I am obsessed with image making in wild places. I have spent nearly 2 years solid working in the Antarctic and over four months in Greenland. In Europe I enjoy climbing long Alpine routes of all different styles and difficulty or looking for interesting lines to ski. Over the last few years I have been working on a large format photographic guidebook on the finest routes on the 4000m peaks of the Alps. I also have a strong background in ski mountaineering, having made a single push 31hr traverse of the Haute Route, gained 3rd in the Patrouille des Glaciers (Z1 – 2014), competed in the World Championships and many other ultra marathon ski events.

This site displays a selection of my catalogue of adventure, landscape and lifestyle photography. All of these are available as prints, and many for commercial license. I am likewise available to arrange shoots for commercial requirements. For further information please contact me via the form (link in menu) or call me on +33 (0) 781 53 33 60
