The two Tibetan kids in the photo are in an area of upper Mustang called Chhoser, where the people still inhabit cave dwellings. I have a deep passion for Tibetan their culture, and I try to use images to promote its preservation. These two kids stepped in front of the camera and made the Namaste gesture you see in the image without being prompted or cued. And I was fortunate enough to be there with my camera to make the shot. They remind me that my decisions have impacts that are more far-reaching than I might think. When I make a decision in my life, I want to be conscious of how I can positively or negatively impact the entire human family. Knowing that there are these fragile cultures out there, and our decisions do have impacts, is very important.

Throwback to 2007, my first summit attempt on Everest.
I was 27 at the time, driven, wildly ambitious and fiercely determined to make a film in honor of my friend Sean who died two years prior on the mountain. Looking back I can see how some may have been offended by my will to climb with little experience, but with a decade of powerlifting, along with advanced Qi Gong techniques under my belt, coupled with a team leader and a few great Sherpas who believed in my dream, I was positioned in a space where I had a realistic and responsible shot at the top.
I lugged heavy cameras up the mountain, shot, cut, created dispatches with bulky equipment and navigated the unknown terrain with bold determination and a belief in something far greater than myself that fueled me every step of the way.
It was a profound and transformative time in my life when I was still ‘finding life’ and sorting out who I was and who I wanted to become.
It wasn’t until I reached camp 4 that season as I looked over at the picture of Sean on my down suit sleeve that I understood how some could be allured by the physical challenge of climbing Everest. I never really saw it that way to be honest, and still don’t, but I did finally understand and grew to respect the desire that many have to discover what they are capable of. For me, it began as a spiritual journey, a pilgrimage of sorts, an honoring of the life of a friend and then evolved into a stage to symbolically inspire others to do the same is whatever capacity resonates with them.
We all have our own dreams and ambitions and the shamelessly optimistic dreamer in me believes that what really matters is that along with all of the choices we make in ‘real life’ that we never fail to craft and design the life that is the ultimate story that we would want to relive over and over again, regardless of how impossible it may seem. As they say: Climb that Goddamn mountain! Live a life with no regrets.
The last twenty feet before reaching the top of the world. What I love about this raw clip is that it gives you a real sense of just how difficult it is to walk at 29, 000ft above sea level, with supplemental oxygen. Imagine: You’re that close to the goal you’ve been dreaming about, planning for, training for, putting your life on the line for, in some cases sacrificing almost everything for and yet despite the elation, endorphins and adrenaline charging and energizing you in such a deadly environment the thin air prevents you from easily taking those last few steps before standing on the summit. In my ‘Everest - Summit Climb’ video I left in some of my gasping coughs on the top as I wanted to help the audience feel was it was like to run these last few steps with a heavy camera and record the arrival of the team. Bringing back images and telling stories from untamable, unconquerable, raw and unforgiving environments is its own little Everest and one I truly embrace and adore.

«ПОТОМУ ЧТО ОН СУЩЕСТВУЕТ»
Джордж Ли Мэллори / Книга посвященная трем английским экспедициям в 1921, 1922 и 1924 годах
Эверест, Джомолу́нгма, Сагарма́тха, «Третий полюс земли» – так называют величайшую вершину планеты (8848 м над уровнем моря). Книжная серия под названием «Эверест» – это истории покорения и изучения вершины, но прежде всего – это, полная драматизма, жизнь и судьба покорителей Эвереста.
Открывает серию книга, посвященная трем английским экспедициям в 1921, 1922 и 1924 годах и легенде Эвереста – легенде всего альпинизма Джорджу Ли Мэллори, который во время лекционного турне по Соединенным Штатам, отвечая на вопрос докучливого корреспондента, почему он решил подняться на Эверест, изрек свою знаменитую фразу: «Потому что он существует». 8 июня 1924 года Джордж Мэллори вместе с Эндрю Ирвином вышли из лагеря, расположенного на высоте 8170 метров, на покорение вершины. Но вернуться им уже было не суждено. Были ли Мэллори с Ирвином на вершине и погибли при спуске или смерть их настигла в нескольких сотнях метров от заветной цели? Это вопрос, который не имеет однозначного ответа по сей день, даже после того, как в 1999 году нашли тело Мэллори. «Джордж Ли Мэллори: “Потому что он существует”» – это сборник, который содержит два отчета об экспедициях 1921 и 1922 годов, написанные самим Меллори, книгу Фрэнсиса Ионгхезбенда «Борьба за Эверест», отрывок из книги Райнхольда Месснера «Хрустальный горизонт» и современную статью, взятую из Sevich’s journal.
Sunset behind Ngozumpa Glacier. The Ngozumpa glacier, below the sixth highest mountain in the world Cho Oyu in Nepal, at 36 kilometres (22 mi), is the longest glacier in the Himalayas. Ngozumpa Glacier is a large persistent body of ice. It flows slowly due to stresses induced by its weight. The Nepali Himalayas are warming significantly in recent decades. Ngozumpa glacier is showing signs of shrinking and thinning, producing melt water. Some of this water pools on the surface where an enormous lake is growing. This lake, called Spillway, has the potential to be about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) long, 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) wide and 100 metres (330 ft) deep. In the future this might be a threat to the Sherpa villages down the valley

Musing on a past life in the Khumbu Valley
At 6,812m, this ain’t the biggest in the Himalayas, but it’s the prettiest. What do you think?
Live your life to the fullest. Fill your heart with love and positive energy. Travel the world, so that you have a great story to share.
