This clinic is designed for climbers who want to improve their photos of their climbing partners without being disruptive to their partners, or creating a safety hazard. This clinic will focus on how to set-up and photograph from a fixed line. It is also geared toward people who are already comfortable with using their camera, but do not know how to ascend a rope, but want to start taking top down photos of ice climbing. We will focus on a minimalistic approach to the equipment used.
Each participant will be given a new Petzl headlamp to use for the night and keep for future climbing trips!
Some of the techniques and concepts we will cover:
- pre-shot planning
- rigging for photography
- rope ascension
- climbers body positioning
