"We were constantly battling the elements: bugs, rain, and slippery cliff edges. The most difficult part though was trying to be creative, and look at the angles with a fresh perspective... all while trying not to slip and fall, while its raining and you are getting eaten alive by bugs.

"I share passion through my photography. The athletes I call friends are my muse. Dangling on ropes, bushwhacking through jungles, and suspended in space with my toes dipped in waterfalls. I'm never comfortable...
My friends would say I like to tinker. Impossible flash syncs, complicated rope work, and razor thin focus planes. The athletes push the limits of their bodies and equipment. I do the same.
There are no stadiums full of cheering fans. Instead, I alone catch glimpses of the earth that are rarely seen. I've never been much for souvenirs. A single picture is enough for me!"
