One of many memorable moments from my shoot with @pattitude and @outsidetelevision. The episode airs tonight at 8pm EST on Outside TV and is also playing on www.outsidetv.com. I can only hope all my shoots are that fun... Thanks to @neu_productions for the pic.
Happy to support my good friend @argonautphoto's latest efforts....

From @argonautphoto "My non-profit @AmplifierFoundation just launched a project on Kickstarter that I wanted to share with you. It was my way of turning my fear and sadness after Nov 8th.
Eight years ago my friend Shepard Fairey (@obeygiant) made an image that defined a period of HOPE in America. Today we are in very different times. In the wake of this year’s presidential campaign, very concerning things are becoming normalized: anti-Immigrant rhetoric, building walls, mass deportations, talk of Muslim registries. This moment calls for new images, images to disrupt the rising tide of hate speech and fear mongering. We the People need to come together under a new symbol of Hope— one that reminds us that OUR America is one of equal humanity, and does not demean or discriminate. We need you to help us take back this narrative.
In addition to Shepard we have 2 of the most talented activist artist working today: @ernestoyerena and @jessicasabogal. Together these 3 artists are helping shape the American story we SHOULD be telling.
The sale of these artist's prints on Kickstarter will fund the publication of their images and words as full page ads in the Washington Post on Inauguration Day, to be distributed to 600,000 people. Free speech in public spaces has rarely been as stifled as it will be for this inauguration. But no administration can tell you can't buy a newspaper and hold it up above your head! Beyond the ads in the Post @AmplifierFoundation will also be distributing all of these images at Metro stops, out the back of moving vans, and at drop spots in DC to be announced in the coming weeks on their site. We don’t have any one easy solution, but we do know this: We are Resilient, we must be Indivisible, we must be #GreaterThanFear, we must #DefendDignity, and we must #ProtectEachOther.

Awesome to see @hanahliving partnering with @protectourwinters. HANAH will donate 5% of all sales to POW through the link in my bio. You can learn more about the partnership at the @Hanahliving blog also in the link. Hahah One is the one superfood supplement I take everyday, everywhere - from office days to travel days, on expeditions to the backcountry. Here's to an epic snow-filled, heathy season and a view of sustainability that protects our planet and our winters! #HANAHONE #protectourwinters 🏂: @jeremyjones #hifives

Big shout out to all the folks who came out for the @merufilm theatrical release in Japan. Domo arigato! Thanks for making it such a big week! @conrad_anker setting sail over the Indian Ocean Wall on the Shark's Fin. #garwhal #himalaya @thenorthface
2016 was another wild year of travel, film and photo projects. Looking back at the end of the year, I’m always grateful for the incredible people I’ve been able to work with and the places I’ve been able to shoot. Huge thank you’s to all of you I had the privilege to work with and so much appreciation for everyone that followed along during the year. ---------------------------------------------------
As for special moments, there were a lot of them....Of all the places I traveled to, I never would have thought one of the wildest assignments would be in New York City. Here’s another outtake from the @NYTmag cover shoot from the top of the One World Trade Center. Here’s to 2017 and a new year going to places you never imagined going and answering questions you never thought to ask. @canonusa
I was frothing too hard and charging out the gates to write anything coherent about @griffpost's shot yesterday....but it's been awesome to see him in tram line and crushing every year in @tetongravity films. Nice to finally get an epic day w him....To say he rips would be a slight understatement. Skiing was too good to haul the camera out much but I did get this iPhone snap while chasing him around the hill.... @thenorthface @jacksonhole

Hard to believe it’s been ten years today....@kitdski and @robdski prep to rap the Hillary Step at 28,500ft a few minutes after skiing off the summit of Everest. Dropping in is still one of the top surreal moments for me in the mountains. Some people viewed it as madness. For us, it was just something we dreamed of doing. I think not at least trying to live an extraordinary life is madness. Big love to you two, Rob and Kit, for the years of adventure, madness and friendship....Happy Anniversary! @thenorthface #questionmadness #chomolungma
I am thankful everyday to be able to do what I do. I know I wouldn’t have had the same opportunities to pursue this life in a lot of places on our planet. The more I travel and see the world, the more I recognize what an incredible country we live in. Tomorrow I am voting my conscience. I am voting for the environment. I am voting for what I believe are basic human rights - for people to be able to choose who they marry, to choose their religion, to choose what they do with their bodies. I am voting to RESPECT people no matter where they are from and to embrace the diversity that this country is built on. I am voting to increase taxes in my income bracket because I believe in working towards the collective good. I am voting to help those less fortunate because these are the ideals I want to instill in my children. Tomorrow I am voting for my country. I hope you do to. #imwithher
Rule #1 - Always find a nice flat spot for your campsite....Sometimes you have to break the rules...
The only drama I like in my life...
And that's a wrap! @_felipecamargo_ and @alexhonnold coming back down to earth after sending big....and what an incredible earth it is.... Happy Earth Day! #thankfuleveryday for the wild places left in the world. #NatGeoEarthDay #Guizhou #China @canonusa @thenorthface

Another one from 2006....Mingma Dorje crossing crevasse fields of the Western Cwm between Camp 1 and Camp 2 on Everest. Our expedition was in the post monsoon season, so we were the only team on the mountain. This also meant we got to work with our favorite Sherpas since there were no other expeditions and everyone was available. We handpicked 12 of the best climbing Sherpas we knew, many of whom I’d worked with before, from the Khumbu Climbing School that @conrad_anker and @jenniloweanker so generously started. As with many Everest expeditions, without the incredible Sherpa support and their efforts, we could not have pulled off our ski expedition. One of the most hilarious moments of the trip was right after we screened “The Man Who Skied Everest” with our Sherpa team at basecamp. The film (won an Oscar) documents Yuichiro Miura, a legendary Japanese alpinist who attempts to ski Mt. Everest in 1970. While he doesn’t summit, Yuichiro tries to ski the Lhotse face trailing a parachute. He takes a fall high on the route, tumbling down most of the mountain but survives. After the film, several of our Sherpa friends wanted to see our parachutes. Of course we didn’t have any. This concerned them greatly. We had a good laugh over it. @robdski @kitdski
Thinking of friends, family and the climbing community in the Tetons today...You will be missed Gary...
Outtake from the @nytmag cover shoot w Jamison Walsh climbing to the top of the One World Trade Center. Not surprisingly, this is one of the few places I actually feel at home in the city. #nyc @kathyryan1 #dontlookdown
One more from #TheFourthPhase archives. An epically cold but memorable night out w @travisrice and co in #kamchatka shooting time lapses and watching the nearby volcano rage. Tune into @redbulltv at 9pm tonight for a onetime free screening of the full film and see if you spot this timelapse. I didn't get a chance to shoot a lot of them so was stoked this made the cut. @rbmhfilms

My good friend @pedromcbride recently walked, hiked, scrambled the entire length of the Grand Canyon while shooting a feature story for @NatGeo. He's also spent years of his life documenting the Colorado River. You could say he is intimately connected to both the place and the issues surrounding the Grand Canyon, one of our great national treasures. This is one of his photos from the shoot, and this is his request, which I fully support. --------------------------------------------------- Your voice, this week, might help decide the future of this landscape.
This overlook is the site of a tramway called the Grand Escalade which is proposed to take 10k people a day down to the Colorado River and LCR confluence — a place considered spiritually sacred by the tribes of the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni and more. This development is on the Navajo land, and many Navajo including the president are opposed to this project. Others see huge economic benefit. The developers have put forth legislation to override the Navajo president in a vote — public comment is available until this Saturday only.
