Buckskin Gulch

So I’ve been fortunate enough the past few weeks to go do a few things by myself in amazing places. Yesterday I got to go for a quick run up Buckskin Gulch and Wire Pass in the South East corner of Utah.

I snapped a few shots on self timer mode. I loved the way this one turned out!

Everyone should go to Thailand!! The water is amazing and the scenery is unreal!!

I’ve got so many images to share. This one is from the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand.

Life has been crazy busy this year. I’ve barley had time to post my images anywhere outside of their publications. But I do plan on post more from this trip as soon as I can.

Thanks for stopping by!

More from Down Under

Here are the rest of the photos from the first part of this trip. I’ll be running around a bit more so I’m sure I’ll upload some later.

So all the mountain and climbing photos are from the Blue Mountains in Australia.

This area is amazing! The cliff bands go forever and ever and have a huge variety in features, steepness and grade.

In the post before this one there are some photos of an amazing 600′ 11-. Amazing!! It was overhanging most of the route and covered by some of the most amazing holds I’ve ever climbed on!

The area with all the tree’s was really impressive! I was feeling totally jet lagged that day so I didn’t do a ton, just a handfull of easier routes. It as one a cliff band that went on and on. There had to be over 200 routes. All slightly over hanging and most of them had giant roofs on the top of the climbs.

They forrest around it was just as amazing! Thick and covered in Eucalyptus trees releasing blue vapors. I’m pretty sure you can taste it in the air.

I’ll be traveling a few more days and then its off to an event to photograph and shoot video!

Thanks for checking in!

Recent Video Shoots

Here is a clip from a bunch of recent videos that I have done. I’ve had a few people ask to see more of my video work, so this should sum up a few things that I’ve done.

Casey Hyer 2011 Video Demo from Casey Hyer on Vimeo.

Here is a little demo I just threw together to show some of the video projects I’ve been working on this year.

They are just clips from a bunch of different projects that I’ve loved.

The last clip of my daughter is probably the hardest footage i’ve ever shot. She’s pretty hard to keep up with.

All videos are shot with Canon 5d, 7d and Nikon 1j.

Shoulders rigs, Flycam and fluid monopods are my main stabilizers.

All of these where done in Utah.

Momentum Climbing Gym USA Comp

So I’ve been working with Momentum climbing gym for the few months a several projects. I’ve shot quite a bit of video for them for commercials and other things and this past weekend I shot their youth USA climbing competition.

These kids are amazing! They weigh nothing and have fingers of steel. They are all really good kids to.

If you use these photos anywhere for yourself, please put a link and photo credit back to my site.

Here are a few photos from the weekend if you want to see all of them for any reason, I put a web gallary up.

Also the prior day I photographed the toprope comp. Pics are here:

Winter Climbing with Mountain Hardware Athlete

I got the opportunity to go out in a blizzard last week and shoot some video and photos for a marketing piece for Mountain Hardware Athlete Mike Libecki. Mountain Hardware has some amazing new fabrics coming out that are going to make people psyched.

I shot most of the video with Mike’s video camera, so I can’t post that here. But here is one of the shots. I’ll sneak some more in if I ever get time.

A great ski week!

It has been amazing in the backcountry this week. On Monday we skiied 3 runs around Reynolds Peak (spl) and another run on the East side of Kessler Peak this morning. Both peaks are in Big Cottonwood canyon near Salt Lake City.

Check out a few of my favorite picks:

If you look at the last photo you can see the peak in the center of the photograph. I took that photo a few weeks ago from across canyon. The run is in the left side of the peak and goes down that runout.
