For my latest project with The Athletes series, I photographed with the phenomenal Adidas climbers Ben Rueck and Mayan Smith-Gobat at the dramatic cliffs of Colorado’s sandstone Escalante Canyon.

Shooting with the new Canon 5DS, which captures an extraordinary 50.6 megapixels, I aimed to create rock climber portraits that felt both contemporary and timeless. Here’s a look at a few of my favorite images and behind-the-scenes shots from the shoot!
