I am very pleased to announce that I have been invited to speak at the “Because It’s There” Mountain Festival which will be held at the Royal Geographic Society of London on June 15th. The short film Why do we climb will be shown and I will also give a very short (8 minutes!) slideshow on mountain photography. The other speakers include such legends as Stephen Venables or Doug Scott, so this is a huge honour to me! Tickets are currently being sold, so if you are planning to attend, let me know.
