Ascending for Photography 

Ascending and fixed line rigging are used extensively for photographing at height. This course focuses on how to set-up and photograph from a fixed line. It is geared toward people who are already comfortable with using their camera, but want to start taking top down photos of rock climbing. No prior rock climbing experience necessary, but preferred. Be ready to photograph real climbers on day 2!

This class will consist of one quarter day for Ground School in Seattle and the next full day at a local Seattle area crag outside (most likely Exit 38 or 32 off I-90).

Want to photograph your friends? We are looking for climber volunteers for the session.  
Have them fill out this form to be considered.
