"I'm passionate about telling stories and sharing my experiences. My photographs allow me this freedom. I strive to capture real moments: celebration on a summit, meditation along the way or the look of true defeat.
"My most memorable projects have been trips plagued by discomfort, uncertainty and danger. This gives the images grittiness, immediacy and reality. And the images have sentimental value for me, which adds depth."
