Simon Carter and the art of climbing photography

I met Simon Carter last year in Kalymnos, when I was filming Adam Ondra to realize the "impossible" film *.
He was very kind, giving the film a couple of his photos about Adam onsighting Gora.

Simon is a very professional climbing photographer, his images from all over the world are just amazing.
You can see what he's able to do (climbers: Monique Forestier and Vince Day, location: Blue Mountains, Australia):
Here You can see another video with a “behind the scenes” where he shows the set up
he used to get some of the footage and stills that he took for the first video, talking about climbing photography.

* (it seems not so "impossible": editing of part 1 about Kalymnos is already finished :-)

After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:
