Because It’s There

“Because it’s there”. The famous words spoken by George Mallory when asked why he wished to climb mountains, and more specifically, Everest.

From a young age I have always spent summers in the mountains, from the Dolomites to the Scottish Highlands. I love the mountains and the time I have been lucky enough to spend within them.
I started this series to create an ongoing collection of my times within the mountains, the experiences I have had, and to capture the beauty of these experiences. I also wish to use these photos as a way to justify this passion for the outdoors, mountaineering and hiking.
