Looking to put your people on an Andean summit? We’ve got just the condor-brushed mountain for the job. Photo above from last week’s shoot for 🇬🇧 clothing company @rab.equipment with local models @frangibar and @ian.morgan. I’m shooting mountain sport, flip-season clothing catalogues, scientific research expeditions and climate stories for international media and branded advertising materials. Covering the Cordillera Central and Patagonia since 2015. Why work here in the Andes? ⛰We’ve got the local know-how 🏜 We get heat when you get rain 🗻 We get snow when yours is all melted 🌋We’ve got glaciers, volcanoes and pumas ⛺️ We work with publishers like @outsidemagazine 🏔 We are already here and ready to begin shooting. Interested in taking your brand’s story into the wild? Hit the message button to chat about what that might look like 🦅 //

Si no has tenido la oportunidad de correr una de las carrera flamantes en el extranjero, te lo juro que ahora no es necesario. 🇨🇱 Este año las distancias más largas de la @echallengechile pasaron por lo mejor de la Cordillera Central, alcanzando casi 3600m; pasando por territorios de alta montaña donde el viento castiga y el puma manda. Da la sensación de estar metido más en una odisea que una carrera. 🇨🇱 Tras una experiencia así hay muchas personas que no aparecen en las fotos de las redes sociales. Con sus décadas de experiencia en el 63% del territorio de este país 🏔que sigue poco explorado, ahora @nolimitschile ha armado un hito con la 80K y 160k que va ser la envidia de todos los corredores extranjeros quienes no han tenido la oportunidad de correr una carrera en Chile. El éxito de la Endurance Challenge renacido, se trató de su cultura de montaña que estaba evidentemente en el corazón del evento, tal como la organización de los cientos de personas monitoreando la seguridad, trasnochando en el cerro, y la disposición y profesionalismo de las personas en los PASs controlando, abasteciendo y animando. Era de nivel mundial. 🇨🇱 Conocí mis propios límites en la 160k, quedando sin piernas en km 100, retirándome en km 138 cuando no quería mas guerra y que claramente no estaba viviendo una experiencia atlética. Agradecimientos total a mi equipo de amigos y familia que me cuidaron. Y especialmente a mi pacer de lujo y amigo y consejero en todas las cosas de la vida - @ian.morgan. 🇨🇱 1ra foto de la bajada alucinante sacado cerca desde Refugio Alemán camino a Yerba Loca. 2da foto por @carolafresno en km tipin 125, cuando - como decimos en inglés - las ruedas se habían desconectado del auto. 🇨🇱 Quizás debo enfocarme mi aporte en las 📷 y ✏️ de montañas acá en Chile, y no tanto en competir. De todas formas, es un honor vivir en este país. Con eventos como la @echallengechile, vamos por mucho, mucho más. ✊🏽🏔🇨🇱 #echallengechile @marcachile @chiletravel @thenorthfacechile @thenorthfaceecs @sernatur_chile @santiagoadicto @imagendechile

Four years ago I wrote the story in my bio for @redbulladventure about The World’s Harshest Race - the @echallengechile 100mile ultramarathon. This Friday I’ll be toeing the startline myself. The mega event organised by @nolimitschile passes very close to my house in the foothills of the Andes, and slowly I’ve been drawn into it. Last year I hiked up at sunset between the cactuses to shoot runners in the 160km distance going into their second night. On the golden hill that evening I bumped into my friend and fellow entrepreneur @matiasbull. He too had hiked up for the thrill of being close to the competition and to polish his skills as a race photographer, even when not officially working. As a freelancer there’s a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes. My articles and photography only show the finished product; not the research, pitching to editors (50% of the battle), travel time, interviews, redrafts and photo edits (let alone fitting the 100mile training in around our three month year old son). You need a whole of psyche as a freelancer to make shit happen. To keep ploughing on. To keep creating. To keep finding the energy to tell a story that is meaningful to you. It’s kind of the same with extreme sports. It’s been 16 years since I ran my first mountain race. This Friday will my furthest yet. But some things, like grit, passion and blind snarl-faced determination never change. As we use to say back in the early 2000s as we made our first forrays into rock climbing and ultra sport : “if you are not psyched; it’s time to get psyched!” 📷 of me shooting the 2018 @tnf_endurance_challenge_cr race by the wicked talented @jesusmier

I watched Chile join the global #climatestrike today from the roof of a Santiago bus stop. . The faces in the march had every bit of that informed, empowered and outraged look of a new #civilrights movement. This December 3rd the world will be watching as Chile holds the 25th @unitednations conference to tackle climate change. . This COP looks like it will also be a first, with global critical mass being reached for radical systemic change. . Answers will need to be provided. . #cop25 #ciaocarbon #UniteBehindTheScience #FridaysForFutureSantiago #fridaysforfuture

I signed up for my first ever 100mile ultramarathon last night. I’ll be racing the @thenorthfaceecs here in the Andes on my 34th bday this October 11 from 2pm. . It’ll also mark 5 years since moving back to Chile and the day my mother in law showed me a newspaper cutting about the same ultramarathon. . Since then I’d admired the race from afar, raced the 50K distance, photographed it, written about it for for @redbulladventure and @mensrunninguk . But never considered the 100miler. . This year is different though, with the mega race organisers @nolimitschile taking runners deep into the #andes and over a 3800m pass within the first 10K. The route also comes right past our house at 50K (which could be a little tempting). . So here’s to the sixth year in this incredible country of adventures, a new frightening challenge and a very painful bday. I’ll be sobbing about it for @mensfitnessuk. . Thanks to @barrosmba for the mega 📷 this morning on Cerro Ñipa. @welculatam @thenorthfacechile #ultrarunning

This week @kristine_tompkins is launching Chile’s #routeofparks in Europe. . To celebrate the launch I wrote and photographed a guide to hiking #cerrocastillo, Patagonia’s newest national park, for the @guardian. Watch this space! . A big gracias to @figumore who came south for the ride. . @tompkins_conservation @riba

“What Chile’s sacrifice zones tell us about the ongoing riots” It was difficult writing this for @geographical_magazine being so physically and emotionally connected to the protests unfolding here in Chile over the last few days. On Friday however I travelled to one of the nation’s so called “sacrifice zones” of Quintero, to write a story about what lessons in the town could teach us about the motives behind the riots. Children in the sacrifice zone can not play outside when the prevalent wind blows air from the nearby coal plants into their playground. Gustavo and his mother in the photo above have let me use the photo. We were in their living room when I took it. Bernadita was showing me medical documents about how her son began excreting blood after the 2018 air pollution crisis. Chile is going through an exceptionally challenging moment, and pointing fingers now is not necessarily going to lead to resolutions on the street. When the violence does finish, and if @gobiernodechile hope to restore legitimacy with their people and international community - very hard questions will have to be answered about what can be done to resolve the injustices that penetrate deeply into the fabric of this fractured society. 🇨🇱 You can read the story in my bio now, for @geographical_magazine.

Shooting billboard size shots for British clothing brand @rab.equipment yesterday in the Cordon de San Francisco. Until then, you’ll have to take my word that the models really digged the kit and wanted to give it an airing rather than throw it off a cliff.🌵

#SoyTorrencial. Un resumen de dos años siendo fotógrafo de #TorrencialValdivia para @nimbusoutdoors. Gracias por la confianza amigos! 🙏🏼🇨🇱🇬🇧 Tienes que ser aperado con la 📷 eso si. Por ejemplo, si algunas imágenes tienen bordes borosas...no es fotoshop. Es agua Torrencial adentro el lente del camara...😜🇨🇱⛰ . In the south of Chile they have a yearly rain dance race called “Torrencial Valdivia.” The ten organisers from Chile’s super hip southern city of Valdivia deliberately choose the soggiest, wildest and winteriest time of year to hold their coastal ultramarathon through native forests, across ranging rivers and through sinewy single track. For the last 2 years they have invited me along with my camera. Here are my top ten favourite shots. And yes, even behind the camera, I was as pissing wet and as inexplicably psyched as the competitors 😜⛰🇨🇱📷💥🤟🏽

I listened recently to the musing of ultra cyclist Ian Walker as he sat in a petrol station some few days from breaking the trans European record by bike. . This weekend I completed a far shorter distance at the albeit brutal Titl Til Lampa race in Chile’s central coastal mountains. It’s got a 1.5k vert warm-up in the first 7km, and then you have to hold tight for another two mountain passes before completing the 36km distance. . Walker talked about how endurance activities offer a chance to experiment and gain perspective on ways of living the longer journey through life. Completing personal physical challenges is a way to refine tactics. It had been over a year since I put a race number on. I struggled home in 8th overall after a hateful mid section to the race, as this mega pain cave face snapped by @felipecuevasphoto testifies. . But it felt good to be out there again. Testing ways of hanging on. So here’s to getting to the end of the biggest dance of all. And doing it with a smile on. . . Many thanks to the awesome organisation of @latitudsurexpedition as they put on their 6th version of this stella meat grinder of a mountain race. . #endurance #ultrarunning #Chile #trailrunning

📷✊🏽📹 It pays to work with great people. . 🙏🏼For the last 3 years I have been colloborating with the outrageously talented and ludicrously psyched @jimmyhyland_ 🏊🏽‍♀️🚵🏼‍♀️🏃🏾‍♂️ . This photo shoot was our first time working together for a super fun article called “DIY Triathlon” for Red Bull Adventure back in 2016. . 😜⛈ My #sisters and I were okay in our wet suits. Jimmy however was soaking wet up to his waist in street clothes. It was pissing with rain and we all struggled keeping a straight face for the camera. . ⛰The second photo, and Jimmy is behind the camera again at 4600m in the Argentinean Andes. Shot this February 2019 on the #searchforstardustexpedition. . It pays to work with good people. Once you click with a collaborator, keep dreaming big, keep pitching hard to the editors and keep going after the great stuff! . 💥Full props and photo credit to @jimmyhyland_ . . #Firendship #partnership #collaboration #dreambig #freelancelife #adventurephotographer #triathlon #mountaineering

Pow! 💥 #Chile has won World Adventure Destination of the Year every year for the last 5 years running. Horizon Travel asked me to co-author their new Active Chile guidebook. And whilst I know an image is worth a 1000words, here's my guidebook intro in full. Hopefully it paints a picture of why I've spent the last five years adventuring in this incredible county. 🇨🇱

Hoy me levante para sacar fotos para apoyar una causa que me mueve, y terminaron publicadas en La Tercera. Enlace en mi bio po. 🤓 . Las fotografías son de la acción "Ni Una Gota Más" por @xrchile afuera de la Embajada de Brazil para llamar la atención a los defensores ambientales quienes fueron asesinados en 2018, y también el no haber firmado el acuerdo de Escazú en Chile para proteger sus derechos. .

Beneath this incredible (industrial apocalypse?) painting by Matta in @patrimoniolamoneda Presidential Palace, the Chilean Environment Minister @carolinaschmidtz and Energy Minister Juan Carlos Jobet meet the foreign press core yesterday to discuss the nation's new #climatechangelaw and #decarbonization plan ahead of #cop25.

#Chile is surging ahead with the creation of #nationalparks. But a tiny US$5.1m national budget for their protection is being spread ever thinner. I investigated the public-private funding arrangement that @tompkinsconservationchile and @pewenvironment are presenting to @gobiernodechile. Extract for @latinnewslondon. #WTA2019 #chileestuyo

More power to everyone going on global #climatestrike today. ✊🏽 . Story for @geographical_magazine in bio of how teenagers @gretathunberg, @youthvgov and @jamie_s_margolin fought #climatedenial this week in US Congress.

Mount Tupungato. We came for you this February with everything. We packed food for 15 days, hired mules and a muleteer. We brought clothes for your -30degrees summit at 6170m above the Pacific Ocean. We came with the respect you deserve. . Yet in your infinite wisdom you conspired with the Argentinean army and blocked access to your eastern flank. You took our mule in the full force of the Tunyuán river and shortly after sucked our main tent into its chocolate torrent. You stacked a 50km glacier in our path and you scared us after dark with puma tracks. . Señor Tupungato. You humbled us this February. But we have not been cowed. Next antipodean summer, @jimmyhyland_ , @franklawn, Joe Davies I are heading back into the heart of the Andes. Please give us a second chance. Amen. .

We are in the middle of a long deep winter here in the shadow of Mount Pochoco. I’ve taken to running slow with friends in the mountains with a thermos flask of coffee. The snow will be here to stay soon up at our base at 950m. Meanwhile, here’s a throw back to marginally warmer times, photographing the Cañi Trail race last December in the #araucania region. There’s time for plenty more chilly adventures before the sun rises again over Mount Pochoco.

Hay una cita de Pablo Neruda muy repetida del bosque chileno. Pero quizás no tantos conocen esta de las montañas chilenas; dada cuando recibió su Premio Nobel de Literatura en 1971. La encontré este mes mientras que investigaba por mi magister un marco para reconocer el valor que el Valle @yerbaloca tiene por su valor espiritual, y no solo los recursos que uno podría extraer: . “Comprendí entonces de una manera imprecisa, al lado de mis impenetrables compañeros, que existía una comunicación de desconocido a desconocido, que había una solicitud, una petición y una respuesta aun en las más lejanas y apartadas soledades de este mundo.” .
