Black Diamond Alpinism Catalogue Click here for the Black Diamond Alpinism Catalogue This was a shoot like none other. Black Diamond wanted to start producing online digital catalogues for their line of climbing products. However, since this was a completely new idea the catalogue would have to evolve as we went along. I had 6 months in which to shoot as many classic hard routes in the European Alps as possible, and to come back with not only stunning imagery, but from climbs that have a true story and history behind them. From the images and video we would be able to put together a digital catalogue that not only showcased Black Diamond products but also shared the rich history of climbing in the valley that is arguably the birthplace of alpinism. Over those months I worked at every sign of good weather and we covered classic ridges on the wild and remote side of Mont Blanc as well as cutting edge climbs on the North Face of the Grandes Jorasses, and everything in between. After Black Diamond has reviewed all the images, edited the video, and compiled dozens of climbs and stories of the first ascents, the result was the very first Black Diamond Digital Catalogue and I couldn't have been prouder of the work we did for it. Having said that we just shot the 2015 Alpinism Catalogue out in Pakistan- it doesn't really get much more authentic and hardcore than shooting on unclimbed technical 7000m peaks in the Himalayas.
