Back in my University days in the Czech Republic, every two months on Friday something special happened. A new issue of the Montana magazine came out and as a newbie who was keen to learn what climbing was actually about it did not take me long to read it from cover to cover. I remember frothing over the wild reports from climbing trips to the remote parts of our world and being psyched for days after that.
At that time I had no idea what photography was and could barely get of the ground. I still do not quite understand how but thanks to some amazing people around me, photography became a passion to be explored and climbing the love of my life (after you @treeloveyoga of course ;). Fifteen years later, it's funny how not that much has changed, I'm still frothing over magazines, looking for an inspiration for the next adventures. Then from time to time stars align and an opportunity comes to share what I witnessed through the viewfinder to maybe inspire others. Hopefully not to take up smoking as the cover might suggests ;) but to follow their passion like @macciza and @zach_ often do ... keeping it real. Huge thanks to these two for taking me along on their adventures ;)
