Photo by @dirkcollins The Sacred Himalayan Landscape is a trans boundary conservation area linking parks in Nepal to India and into Bhutan. The area covers 9.5 million acres and includes five million people who speak 40 different languages. It is part of the @wwf initiative that taps into the spiritual beliefs and conservation ethics of the local communities to restore critical habitats and protect endangered species such as the snow leopard.

A glimmer of hope in a messy world. #WWF @borrowlenses ----------------------------------------------------------- Occasionally I am asked to do a shoot during a stretch of time I’ve already been booked. When that happens, I’ll often turn to my friend and long-time collaborator Dirk Collins. Dirk and I have worked together on a few big high stakes projects in the past - shooting a ski descent of the Grand Teton, ski BASE jumping in Baffin Island for Pirelli tires and he was also recently my DP on the SquareSpace spot with Alex Honnold climbing Heaven in Yosemite. If I have to pick one guy for a heavy remote high stakes mission, it's likely going to be Dirk. So, the project.....I had been talking to Jon Miceler, Managing Director of the Eastern Himalayas Program and Director of the Mainland Asia Program for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), for several years about collaborating on a snow leopard project. A few months ago, Jon finally called to start filming a piece about the Snow Leopards in Nepal. Unfortunately I was booked, but I was able to send Dirk in my stead. He just returned from the mission and wrote a great blog piece about the first portion of the shoot. Link is in my profile.
