A Different Perspective
Klättermusen, the Swedish outdoors brand, have started the search for Europe’s next big outdoor adventure photographer and want you to consider submitting your work.
To celebrate what they feel is the unsung heroes of the outdoor world, Klättermusen have released a new movie – A Different Perspective – that looks at adventure photography through the lenses of photographers Tero Repo, Melody Sky, and Daniel Bernstål – three cover-bagging masters of the game.
As well as getting themselves to the same environments as their subjects, photographers have to do it carrying a backpack full of expensive gear and more often than not, stand still for hours on end to get the shot.
“The photographer is always the person who gets the least credit. That’s why I have so much respect for snowboard photographers.” – Sven Thorgren
“The photo is the trophy that you bring home and that allows you to relive the moment.” – Xavier De Le Rue
Klättermusen and the stars of the film are also launching a Europe-wide photo contest that, true to the brand’s ethos, seeks to discover and support the next big name in our outdoor cultures.
“Genuine craftsmanship has been the cornerstone of Klättermusen since 1975,” says Simon Stenborg, Creative Lead at Klättermusen. “We support the true pioneers of the outdoor world by providing the tools needed to perfect their own craft.”
“With ‘A Different Perspective’, we wanted to shift the focus towards the unsung heroes who provide us with the inspiration to keep doing what we do. We wanted to explore what happens when photographers turn their cameras towards each other in order to portray their own craftsmanship with the thinking and attention to details that goes within their storytelling artform.”
