I am in the process of updating the outdoor adventure side of my portfolio. I have been contacting people I am interested in photographing and the response has been good. One of the images I was after was an ice climbing shot. I contract Robert Le Blanc about coming to shoot one of his ice climbing clinics in Hamilton. Rob was kind enough to accept so I headed out on Sunday to capture some images.
Robert had a great turnout with 10-20 climbers, perfectly manageable. The waterfall was in a deep horseshoe which only got direct sunlight for a short time. It made for nice even light and I was happy to work with it. I was a tad cold sitting in the snow but I moved around enough to fight off the worst of it. I didn’t have any crampons which limited my foothold and possible shooting angles. I still manged to get what I was after and am stoked on the shots! Here are some pics from the shoot.
Thanks to Robert and all the climbers for a great day!
If you have an activity you think I may be interested in capturing, drop me a line.
