I had my first taste of climbing mountains during the winter in 2012 when I embarked on a solo three-week trek in the Nepal Himalayas. This life changing experience inspired me to reach even greater heights by setting one of the biggest goals of my life so far – to climb the ‘Seven Summits’, the highest mountain on each continent.
I began by reaching the first summit Russia’s Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, in June 2014 in challenging pre-season conditions. Less than six weeks later, I successfully solo climbed Mont Blanc, without a guide, team, support or acclimatisation. My passion for challenge and adventure allowed me to successfully summit Kilimanjaro in September 2014, the second of her Seven Summits. In the same year, December 2014, I stood on the top of the highest point of Antarctica, Mount Vinson, having then climbed three of the Seven Summits by the end of 2014.
Following months of dedicated training and preparation, I summited one of the most difficult challenges yet; North America’s highest peak Denali in June 2015. Continuing my 100% summit success, I climbed Aconcagua in South America in January 2016, the tallest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas, and stood on the top of Oceania’s highest point, Carstensz Pyramid in Indonesia in March 2017. To gain further experience and confidence in exposed terrain, I climbed the Matterhorn in August 2017, without acclimatisation.
After six months of focused training, I stood on the summit of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, on the 18th of May 2018.
This challenge was born to capture the highest mountain on each continent with my camera. The mountain photos below are available to purchase in very limited edition.
