Simon is a professional photographer and film maker who began climbing in high school whilst living in Canberra. His passion for documenting his adventures and wild landscapes has seen him emerge as one of Australia’s best climbing photographers. Simon has just recently published his first book with Gerry Narkowicz which is a chronicle of Tasmanian climbing history. He has also made a feature film about a winter ascent of Blade Ridge which toured internationally with the BANFF film festival. Simon is also one of Tasmania’s top climbers and in 2018, he made the first ascent of The Hour Glass (30), the hardest traditional rock climb Tasmania.
