I've been an avid hiker since I can remember.Recording my discoveries on film (or with digital imaging) has always been one of my passions.I have found myself staying with the safe paths lately though. As I get older, climbing rocks and steep hills becomes more difficult.Not too long ago I took a detour during one of my hikes and found a hidden area out of sight of the worn pathway I frequently walk.The terrain became steeper and large rocks blocked the way.Driven by what was to be found... continue reading

If you check my portfolio you will see that apart from studio shots there are many mountain views. Climbing or trekking fits perfectly with photography, it's a double pleasure - at least to me ;-)Today I would like to write a few words about Mala Fatra - beautiful mountain range situated in Slovakia, Europe.The highest peaks reach around 1700m (Wielki Krywan), usually around 1500m which make the climbing rather easy and pleasent. For those who just prefere photographing, there are lifts... continue reading

June 10th I went climbimg Pico volcano in the Azores, here goes the story of that day.It all started at 2AM, we started climbing at that hour so that we could see the sunrise. At 1600m high my knee (had surgery) started to give away but the will to take photos at the top kept pushing me up.After 4 hours climbing we reached the top and all the hard work started to pay off. the view is just gorgeous. It was a pety that the clouds were blocking the view down, now I feel obligated to climb it... continue reading
I wanted to mention a fellow that I had met when I was learning to ice climb a couple of years ago.He is a Canadian from Alberta, and a fantastic climber!He was my instructor, teaching me the skills necessary to scale frozen waterfalls.Later that evening, when our class had concluded, I bumped into him at a restaurant below the gear shop.We chatted for a bit before I had to head home.He handed me his card and said to stay in touch.That didn't happen so much.I got busy.Life has... continue reading
