About My Photography
I'm definitely a climber who takes photographs, rather than a photographer who climbs! But I'm fortunate to be able to visit some stunningly beautiful places and climb with some quite photogenic people, hence I've got a few nice snaps over the years. A couple of the best ones have made their way into guidebooks and magazines which is always nice! =o)

Anything Else We Should Know
I'm a SQL Server DBA by trade and I like hats. I don't like avalanches.
