Ben Tibbetts is an adventure photographer, artist and IFMGA mountain guide based in Chamonix and the UK. He specialises in working in remote and cold environments. Having studied Fine Art to a postgraduate level he is obsessed with image making in adventurous environments. He has spent nearly 2 years working in the Antarctic and over four months in Greenland. In Europe he is usually preoccupied with climbing long Alpine routes of all different styles and difficulty or looking for interesting lines to ski. Over the last few years he has been working on a large format photographic guidebook on the finest routes on the 4000m peaks of the Alps. He is also an accomplished ski mountaineer, having made a single push 31hr traverse of the Haute Route, gained 3rd in the Patrouille des Glaciers (Z1 – 2014), competed in the World Championships and many other ultra marathon ski events. Ben has made a handful of steep first ski descents including “Veine de Pierre” and “Fou de Fouly” in the Mont Blanc Massif.
