One of the best parts of my job is getting to know people, and even in commercial shoots there is time to talk, to get to know each other. I was on Grandes Murailles ridge for a shoot with Hervè and Marco Barmasse, Hervè was the “model” and Marco (his father) to be my guide. We shot at sunset and during sunrise and the night in-between was an interesting night in Bivacco Perelli. During the dinner we had time to talk, and it was amazing to learn how two generations of mountain guides shares this passion, this life in the same way. Of course, even if the shoot was for other purposes, I took this picture as well, just for me, and for them. And this is, for sure, the best part of my job.
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
