“Through climbing, I’ve learned to find goals and work toward them. That’s just the way I love to live.”
— Tommy Caldwell

I started climbing exactly two years ago, I got my first v9 a week short of a year after I started, I competed in the 2015 PBR, and this year I had the honor of being the event's photographer!

Here are some of my favorite shots out of the 7,000+ pictures I took. Keep in mind I wasn't allowed on the carpet during the finals, so I didn't get many shots of the finalists climbing. That job was left to someone with more experience. Next year though!

Wonder if I got any shots of you climbing? Reach out to me through the contact page and I'll send them back in an email for free.

Enjoy!
