Matt Lloyd on ice

Filming ice climbing present a lot of challenges snow, logistical,camera malfunctions combine with freezing weather and falling ice are just a few of the problems we face. I called longtime friend and camera operator Jeff Hammerton to help me with this shoot. Jeff recently bought a RED One MX and was looking to test it out I figured what a perfect thing to do to somebody who knows nothing about climbing put them in a precarious situation and laugh at him wile I do so. Actually with the assistance of Dan Gambino a former guide and climbing photographer we had no problems getting Jeff into a nice safe location. The shots that we are able to come out with on  a two camera shoot was pretty cool. Matt’s climbing partner Chris Thompson was a proper soldier and helping belay for the shoot . below you can see a few still frames from the shoot as well as some BTS photos. Also keep your eye out in fall for the “Out Their Film” which will feature part of this segment.
