When one thinks of mountain climbing, it seems like the epic challenge should be hard enough on its own. Yet taking photographs from the sides of mountains adds another layer of difficulty. Buisse explains: “The photography itself is not that much more difficult. The difficult part is getting there in the first place with enough equipment to create a good image. There are additional constraints compared to more ‘regular’ photography, mostly related to being unable to move around or wait for a long time for the perfect light.”
