Alex Ekins Joins The Wild Country Team

Alex Ekins is one of the UK's premier climbing photographers, as well as being a mountain instructor and photo journalist of note. Alex's spirit of photography and his on scene actions shots match Wild Country's enthusiasm for the art of the image and we've been loving his photos for a while.

A good friend of many of Wild Country's sponsees, Alex's most recent work can be seen in this month's Climber feature on Toru Nakajima.

So in 2010 Wild Country joined forces with Alex, sponsoring his mountain instructing and getting exclusive access to some of the amazing photos Alex has taken of Wild Country climbers.

Wild Country are very grateful to Alex for his contribution to their site!
