Jon Griffith

Totally hooked on Alpine climbing and photography. In 2005 I moved out to live in Chamonix full time and pursue a career in alpine climbing photography - alot of work but great fun.

Best Climbing Experience
So many incredible ones its hard to pick a favorite. For me though, a climb hasnt been amazing unless I've got a really good shot from it so that might sway the balance quite a bit!

About My Photography
Started working solely as a photographer about 6 years ago and haven't looked back since. Been a hard struggle to make my bills every month but since the Alps is my office i cant complain. Having taken shots from all the classic vantage points am now trying to break away from those continuously copied photos and find new places- I got bored of seeing the same images in the Chamonix shops year after year...surely there must be some originality left in the Mont Blanc massif? Oh and I'm a firm believer in if you work really hard to get a shot you will always get it.
