I have been climbing for 3 years and have a passion for photography, art and design. The competition was perfect because I really only climb using Sportiva, Petzl and Beal. I did several rough banners of a variety of products from Petzl,Beal and Sportiva but I have decided to only submit banners for the 'Beal Joker rope' and the 'La Sportiva Katana' shoes because I think they are absolutely brilliant products and the banners evolved much more organically because of how well I know them. I wanted to put a main action shot I have taken in one of the banners to give more of a flavor of my style and that comes in the form of a good friend Rob climbing in the amazing destination of Sardinia. The close up of putting on Katanas is a friend called Sam who I am indebted to for introducing me to Katanas and climbing in Sardinia. I've never looked back thanks Sam!
