Mountain prints

New Print Suggestions section

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But not all pictures are what you want hanging on your wall. So for anyone looking for just the right mountain print, I’ve added a new section to help. In four print categories, Print Suggestions presents a selection from all the images in occasionalclimber.co.nz that I think are best suited to printing for display purposes.

Mountain landscapes are probably the most universally popular print category. These images feature no people, focusing simply on the beauty and grandeur of the natural mountain landscape.
But introducing a human element to an image can make it much more personal. You can more easily imagine yourself right there in the landscape. A human element also gives a sense of scale to the landscape.
Mountain culture takes the human element a step further, focusing on people and what they do in the mountains. What remains apparent is how significantly the mountain environment influences and shapes the people who live or visit there.
Within mountain landscapes are countless natural wonders – flora, fauna and beautiful ice, snow, water, rock and cloud features.

New mountain website – Occasionalclimber.co.nz goes live

I’m excited to announce that occasionalclimber.co.nz is ready for visitors – just! I have a long way to go before I get the images bound for the site up to date, but I’ve made a start and will add more as quickly as time permits. In the meantime, there are some nice panoramas to view at HOME. Occasional Climber – the book is available for purchase while stocks last; and I’ve just released a fresh new 2015 calendar, also available to order now – perhaps a nice Christmas gift.

This site brings together and breaths life into over 25 years of travelling, hiking and climbing experiences, in both pictures and words. I’ve hugely enjoyed making and capturing these journeys. I hope I can pass some of that on to the visitors to this site.
