Rock climbing for me is one of my favorite disciplines and one of the longest I've been practicing as an athlete, so the transition to climbing photography in me was a natural process.
I have the strong belief that in order to get the most out of a sport in terms of photography, you have to be a great connoisseur of it, that gives you the possibility to anticipate situations and thus capture the right moment you are looking for in each photo.
In this type of photography you need a series of technical knowledge to be in the right place on the plane you are looking for, to know how to climb a fixed rope, set up meetings, descend to a specific point and above all be autonomous without disturbing the protagonist whom let's photograph.
In short, a sport that motivates me to practice and photograph where the action sometimes happens very quickly, and where the experience and the hours on the wall play in your favor when it comes to getting the photo.
I leave you some images of the warriors and warriors giving everything face to the wall.
