Breathtaking images and death defying stunts: A seminar with Lukasz Warzecha and Mountain-Equipment
Friday 3rd May, 4pm – 5pm
Lukasz describes his adventures, saying ‘When you are hanging from two ice screws 500 feet above the ground on a sheer ice face, the temperature is minus 30˚C. It is cold enough that your breath freezes instantly. Your fingers risk permanent damage if exposed for longer than a few minutes. It is, in simple terms, really cold. Just below me, ME Pro team climber, Uisdean Hawthorn swings an axe into the rock-hard ice. My mission? My mission is to capture a killer image for the ME winter 2019 campaign.’
'What it takes' is a behind the scenes sneak-peak into my two latest assignments for Mountain Equipment (ice climbing in Canada/skiing in Sweden) showcasing unpublished work from the 2019 winter campaign.
Lukasz will talk about what it involves to create this work and the adventures he has been on, alongside how he got started.
Having picked up climbing already at the young age of 15, Lukasz has managed to combine his passion for photography with his passion for climbing in the most inspiring way.
Over the past 10 years he has worked on assignment for some of the biggest brands in the climbing and outdoor industry. His work as a photographer, and lately as a Director of Photography, has taken him to all four corners of the globe.
Lukasz has a long-standing relationship with Mountain Equipment, as a Pro Team member, but also as a photographer shooting authentic images for their advertising campaigns.
