These images and videos were produced for Outside Magazine and Challenge 21 during an expedition with Eddie Bauer guide Jake Norton in the Rwenzori Mountains, aka Mountains of the Moon. These mountains form the troubled border of Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Their highest point, Mount Stanley (16,762 feet), is the the third highest summit in Africa, but sees fewer people in a year than Mt. Kilimanjaro sees in an average week.
These photographs and video reflect my passion for an adventurous life and the free spirits that inhabit wild places climbing towering rock walls, kayaking whitewater in the bottom of the Grand Canyon, skiing steep terrain on snowy peaks and all the places where adventure can be found.
Rivers and fly fishing have been a part of my life since I was kid. Now I spend just as much time with a camera in hand as a fly rod. These images are part of a growing body of work that will become a book on fly fishing the rivers of the American West.
I've travelled extensively around the world on various adventures for clients as well as on my own. These images are just a small selection from those travels which have mostly been in developing countries far from any tourist destination. The goal has always been to meet the locals and immerse myself in their daily lives to get a better understanding of the people and places I encounter.
