Hi! I'm Mitch. 23. A climber, spearfisherman, slackliner, engineer, son, brother, friend, lover, and a citizen of Earth. I also like taking photographs. As a wee boy I was passionate about the outdoors. Every spare moment was spent clinging to treetops, racing around in the dirt, and scraping knees while scrambling up rocks. Now as a slightly taller boy the activities haven't changed much.
For the past five or so years I've explored Mother Nature's wilder environments through rock climbing and more recently with spearfishing. Through these sports I've lived some of my favourite memories and now my goal is to share a tiny slice of them with the hope that it will inspire people to pursue a life of rich adventure and respect the planet we inhabit.
I've always been most inspired by images, films and stories of athletes and adventurers who push the envelope and I aspire to do the same in all my undertakings. Whether it's multi-week climbing trips to remote locations or spearfishing for dinner before breakfast time.
I'm my best self when I'm challenged and I believe my most evocative photos are from more difficult environments. Hundreds of metres up a cliff face? I'll race you up there! -35°C? That's what clothes are for. Deep underwater? I'll take an extra deep breath. No easy shots! We are meant to coexist with nature and I love to capture people completely immersed in it, no matter how difficult.
