Based in Chamonix, France, Jonathan has climbed the world over and established himself as one of the world’s leading mountain sports photographers.  A highly accomplished Alpinist himself, Jonathan continues to push himself to shoot what has never been shot before.

This approach has taken his climbing to a level that sees him regularly tie in with climbers such as Ueli Steck and embarking on cutting edge ascents to visually document expeditions in the Alps, Patagonia, Alaska and the Himalayas. It’s a method that puts authentic climbing at its heart: an increasingly rare but refreshing approach to adventure photography in a climate where style is valued more than substance.

Why I choose Lyo:

"Choosing the right freeze dried meal can be a mine field, there are just so many options. The harder I climb and push myself in the Himalayas the more I realise how important the fuel is that we put in to our body for recovery and to keep going to following day; not all foods digest well, or give you the right nutrition to help the body recover from multi day climbs. LYO are at the top of their game producing really well balanced meals along with innovative fruit products which are perfect for expedition life- freeze dried mandarine at 6000m? That’s pretty special."
