When he’s not climbing or taking photos, he works as a product designer/manufacturing engineer. “I started rock climbing at my university gym a few years ago and I was hooked right away,” says Ho. “I picked up my first camera around the same time and climbing photography just seemed like a breeze after I did my first climbing trip to New River Gorge.”

Jason Quangrew up near Palos Verdes Estates, California.“I didn’t know rock climbing existed until college,” he says. “I was roped up for climbing because someone needed a belay partner, and in this case it was my brother.” Quan is an operations manager who works in the import/export business. Outside of work, “climbing photography allows me to be creative and connect with people,” says Quan. “I’m drawn to the dramatic and powerful movements of athletes, but also to the size of humans compared to nature.”

JENNY WALTERSsays her grandparents, “raised them to invent chipmunk traps and catch crayfish in the mud of streams, get stung by brambles and look for deer skulls in the woods. I explored life with escapades and fervor. That quest continues and still leads me to slide across river rocks and huddle around campfires with s’mores, but now I also hear tales of hurt and hope and try to honor those epics. The result is a deep sense of home and adventure, fear and affection at the same time. With or without a camera, I will always explore.”
