King of Dolomites Winner

The Arc’teryx King Of Dolomites is a photo competition that took place in San Martino di Castrozza, northern Italy in February. The competition was stacked with 13 teams of pro photographers and their athletes, plus 100+ crews competing in the Wannabes category. According to Ned Morgan with Mountain Life Magazine, “Despite the less-than-ideal snow conditions over much of the northern hemisphere this winter, competitors, athletes and spectators alike enjoyed three days of sun, snow and stoke at the foot of the massive Pale di San Martino range.” Morgan reports that the jury...

Photography By Kayak: Tips & Tricks

By Freya Fennwood Photographer and Clik Elite Immortal   Taking photos out of a kayak is not easy, often I find it harder than taking photos dangling off a rope over a cliff edge, or photographing a person plowing though chest deep powder snow right at me. Here are a few reasons why kayak photography is challenging: First, you are bobbing in a boat with tide, wind, and current pushing you around. Meanwhile you have an expensive piece of gear in your hands and your paddle is getting in the way. Then, when the person you are trying to photograph gets in the right spot, a... Read More

Carolyn Guild (1951-2015)

Clik Elite Immortal: Carolyn Guild “We remember images that we want to remember. The reason why we want to remember an image varies: because we simply “love it,” or dislike it so intensely that it becomes compulsive, or because it has made us realize something about ourselves, or has brought about some slight change in us. Perhaps the reader can recall some image, after the seeing of which, he has never been quite the same.” — Minor White  (1908-1976)   Clik Elite mourns the loss of Carolyn Guild who chose trails leading towards eternal and lasting significance in...

My Unconventional Trip to Yosemite

 Written By Alex Chamberlain I finally got to Yosemite. Ansel Adams shot there, kinda put the tunnel view on the map, photographically speaking, and basically helped America fall in love with the place. “So wait,” you might ask, “you’re a landscape photographer, and you’ve never been to Yosemite?” That’s what I’m telling you. Only, now I have been, and it was a spur-of-the-moment, last-minute, crazy-under-prepared kind of embarrassing story that I’m still having a little trouble deciding whether or not should actually get put out there for the public to discover. Whoops,... Read More

Behind The Shot– 100 Miles High

By Fredrik Marmsater- I’ve always approached shooting the Hardrock 100 to convey what the racers are going through – the massive vertical, intense terrain and the immense beauty that the course dishes out. The Hardrock covers 100 miles and 33000 vertical feet of climbing through the San Juans in southern Colorado – all while staying above 10000 ft for the vast majority of the race. Soaring peaks, deep valleys, flowering meadows, waterfalls and roaring creeks, snowfields, loose scree, intense electrical storms are all part of the norm and as the runners tackle the course. Inspiring to... Read More
