I wanted to share this photograph, not because it’s a good photo (in fact there are a handful of things I could have done to improve it) but because it reminds me of a time and place where I captured it. It reminds me of being in the cramped back of a hotel in Jackson Hole while hanging with an amazing North Face photographer, Lucas Gilman, an inspirational photo editor for the National Geographic, Sadie Quarrier and a bunch of rad photographers that became friends. We were all going on way too little sleep, working our butts off and loving every minute of it.
“I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.”
