Kyle Turner was raised in the outdoors and born to appreciate what nature can offer. From a young age his father exposed him to the art of photography through many family adventures and Boy Scout camping trips. As his outdoor pursuits progressed, so did his love of documenting his friends and family along the way. He has worked with famed Dawn Wall climber Kevin Jorgeson, and photographed Chris McNamara who Outside Magazine has called "the worlds finest aid climber." He has made images all over the world, from the most remote mountain ranges to the middle of the biggest cities. His work can be seen in magazines, and on the silver screen.
Jerry Dodrill is an adventurer and award-winning photographer who has traveled to remote corners of the planet in search of wild experiences. His immense talent and creative eye have been well recognized through international awards and exhibition in fine galleries, such as the Ansel Adams in Yosemite, Mountain Light, Mumm Napa Valley, and the Banff Center for Mountain Culture. As a workshop facilitator for Mountain Light Photography, Visionary Wild, Sierra Nevada College, he has proven himself as a highly engaging and effective photographic educator.
An expert mountain climber with degrees in Fine Art and Photography, Jerry is passionate about preservation and was a protégé of legendary Galen Rowell in the late 1990's. Today he resides in the Sonoma County town of Bodega, California, focusing on assignment photography, writing, exhibitions, and sharing his vision and expertise with others.
Jerry's work has been featured in many ad campaigns, books, and publications and is represented by the stock agency Aurora Photos. He is a senior contributor to California Climber Magazine and has been published in Sierra, Orion, Vanity Fair, World of Fine Wine, Wine Spectator, Men's Journal, Smithsonian, Outside, Alpinist, Rock & Ice, Climbing, and many other magazines.

Nick Giblin, a Sonoma County native, is passionate about getting out into the wild. Primarily using rock climbing as his vehicle to adventure, he finds himself at the roof of beautiful mountainscapes the world over. He most enjoys the realness of adventure, challenge of the unknown and camaraderie built amongst climbing partners. Throughout his 14 years spent as a climber, he has tried his best to capture these moments and the beauty that can be found in these locations. His proudest photographic publications to date are a cover of the Alaska Airlines magazine which featured two of his good friends, Kyle Turner and Jeremiah Kahmoson atop Eichorn’s Pinnacle and a full page self portrait hand modeling shot in Alpinist magazine.
