I’ve been indoor climbing now for about six months and I love it. A good friend of mine, Nick, got me into it and I was hooked. I’ve been meaning to bring my camera for a while and start off this project of shooting climbers. It was a lot more intense then I thought, climbing with a camera was more challenging then I thought and just hanging around off ropes for a session completely destroyed me but it was worth it. Indoor climbing isn’t the most interesting environment to shoot it but it did allow me to make a start on this project and work out some of the challenges involved. Firstly, chalk dust gets everywhere. Secondly, it is a challenge to capture the sense of scale and still keep it detailed and interesting. I also shot some film on my RZ67 on lovely black & white film and once these are scanned it I’ll post them here…
