Just about any­thing, from light, a black T-shirt in­stead of a red one, a bad fa­cial ex­pres­sion or com­po­si­tion. The more you shoot, the pick­ier you get with the tiny de­tails. As time goes on, dif­fer­ent things will mean more or less to you. It’s an evo­lu­tion.

Some­times hours, but of­ten it’s not too bad. I’ve shot on over­hang­ing ter­rain for over seven hours, but there was lit­tle wait­ing and the time f lew by. You’re con­stantly do­ing some­thing, from jug­ging and rig­ging to chang­ing lenses.

It’s changed a lot. “Ad­ven­ture pho­tog­ra­pher” is likely one of the most overused and abused terms. Call me an elit­ist prick, but set­ting up a ham­mock on the shores of Ver­mil­ion Lakes is not ad­ven­ture. I love see­ing peo­ple get­ting out and shoot­ing more climb­ing, I just hope they’re do­ing it out of pure pas­sion, not to try and ap­peal to a crowd to sim­ply get more fol­low­ers. We are see­ing an in­cred­i­ble in­crease of doc­u­men­ta­tion of climbs, it’s great for peo­ple shar­ing in­for­ma­tion, but it’s also mak­ing these places a lot more ap­peal­ing and ac­ces­si­ble. Not a bad thing, but it does come with neg­a­tives: in­creased crowds and pop­u­lar­ity
