It’s been a while since I updated the blog with some of my photo work that has been recently published. That is because I have been working non stop on my current video project, The Players. Here are a few images from the climbing world that have made it out to the public!

First is an image from my trip to Vietnam with Joe Brooks and Chris Lindner. We were boating around Ha Long Bay looking for new deep water soloing. Amazing experience! As far as media goes, I was shooting video for Chris Lindner’s segment of The Players and photos for a story in Climbing Mag. The editors were nice enough to let me license an image to National Geographic Adventure before their story came out.

Second is a portrait I shot of Boulder’s Christian Griffith. CG is the owner of Verve, a climbing and yoga apparel company. He’s also one of the pioneers of modern sport climbing in the US! We shot this very quickly outside Verve’s shop in Boulder, Co. I used two Alien Bee 800’s to light the portrait, one to Christian’s right and one to the left. Check out the mag on newsstands now for CG’s full interview !

As most of you know, I spent a few weeks in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam last month with good friends Chris Lindner and Joe Brooks. We were exploring the bay for new rock to climb, shooting photos for a Climbing Magazine story, and filming for my new film The Players. I havne’t been able to share any of the good photos, as we have to keep them fresh and special for the magazine. Well, Chris has returned from the rest of his extended Asia trip and made a great post on his blog with some photos. Check it out HERE……

Our Vietnam trip is a wrap! I am currently at the Hanoi airport waiting to start the trip home to the US. Despite pirates in the bay and two typhoons, we managed to get some great climbing in. I am psyched to show off the footage in our new movie The Players. We also shot photos for an upcoming story about Vietnam Deep Water Soloing in Climbing Magazine. Ha Long Bay is a special place. More photos and stories coming soon…

Big thanks to our friends at Slopony Adventures! They hooked it up and showed us the best Ha Long Bay had to offer. We couldn’t have done it without them. If you are planning a trip out here, definitely connect with these guys. If you don’t, you’re totally blowing it!

Also, thanks to the whole crew. Chris Lindner, Joe Brooks, Erik from Slopony, our Captain, and all the Vietnamese people that have helped us out along the way!

Well the time has come. We’ve been planning this trip for several months now and tomorrow I take off for Ha Long Bay, Vietnam! The long trip there goes from Denver to LA to Taipei, to Hanoi, to Ha Long Bay! The boys at Slo Pony Adventures are going to be taking us on a deep water soloing, sport climbing, and bouldering adventure through this amazing country. I’ll be traveling with Chris Lindner and Joe Brooks, who are already over there scouting some things out.

This trip isn’t all play though. We will be shooting a story for Climbing Magazine and I’ll be shooting the first segment for my new film, The Players. We’ve been doing a lot of pre-production for The Players, but haven’t yet made any public announcments about it. All I can say now is that we’ll be shooting with the players of out sport, those who have been pushing the limits and have made a life of climbing! Pics from vietnam coming as often as I get an internet connection over there….
