I am a wilderness guide and photographer from Australia who in 2012 founded the business 'Base Camp'- in which I trained people physically and mentally for mountain challenges. I have guiding treks and climbs in the Himalayas, The Alps, New Zealand and the Pyrenees for the last 8 years. You can follow my adventures @chase_mountains
