Some Words

Since I can remember, I’ve been inspired by those who journey into the far reaches of the wild, seeking personal growth & achieving a better understanding of the places they dwell in. Plastered upon my childhood room were photos of climbers and skiers pursuing mind bending first ascents and descents. This imagery encouraged me to pick up a camera and begin documenting my own adventures through these wild places.

Nowadays I can be found doing the same thing as I was when I was kid, just in bigger mountains and with friends who are at the peak of their craft, whether that be climbing, backcountry skiing, or running through the alpine. I seek to photograph experiences in the mountains while documenting the beauty that can be found in the expansive reaches of the wild. When working in the mountains, my goal is to act not only as a photographer but also as a part of the team, striving for deep experiences with my partners while keeping efficiency and safety a priority.

Currently I am based in Boulder, Colorado shooting freelance climbing, skiing, and trail running for both editorial and commercial projects. If you’re interested in working together, I’d be more than psyched to discuss it further with you. Shoot me an email // willmckayphotography@gmail.com. Let’s connect.
