Faces of Nepal (Part 2). On my days off while I was traveling, I took a series of photos of the amazing diversity in the faces of the locals I met. In general when I travel to foreign countries, I ask permission to shoot a portrait out of respect for the subject, and luckily those pictured here said yes. And usually when you agree to have your photo taken, you tend to reveal a little bit of your character for that photo. I think each of these people gave a little bit of themselves for a brief instant the shutter clicked...This is the 2nd set of three I’ll share with you, focusing more on the youth and generations of Nepalis...hope you enjoy! #portraits #travel #portraitphotography #portraits #nepal #diversity #age #tbt #throwbackthursday #thursday #lighting #photojournalism #faces #family

Faces of Nepal (Part 1). Just as interesting as the landscapes of the terrain in Nepal are the stories told in the people’s faces there. On my days off while I was traveling, I took a series of photos of the amazing diversity in the faces of the locals I met. In general when I travel to foreign countries, I ask permission to shoot a portrait out of respect for the subject, and luckily these pictured said yes. Each of person pictured has a story as interesting as their faces, from living on the streets to selling in the streets, from serving in the army to serving as a bell hop at a hotel, from creating music to creating food. They are fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters....Here’s the first set of three I’ll share with you, hope you enjoy! #portraits #travel #portraitphotography #portraits #nepal #diversity #age #tbt #throwbackthursday #thursday #lighting #photojournalism #faces

Seeing posts today can’t believe it was 5 years ago today when I took these photos for @espnmag @espn A couple portraits of Kurt Caselli in the garage before the start of the 2013 Baja 1000, and the Gopro footage from the camera we mounted on @ivanramirez450 helmet during their last exchange in the race. Time is one of the biggest commodities we have on this planet, and it goes too quickly 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 @kc66foundation @kurtcaselli66 #kc66 #tbt

Here’s the final batch of action from the 2018 Yak Attack, as well as a couple from the awards ceremonies and our last dinner together. What an adventure it was to cover this epic endurance event through the beautiful country of Nepal. Hats off to all the competitors who endured every gnarly condition thrown at them, I was happy to call you all my friends by the end of the event. Special thanks to Phil and Corrine at @_mtbworldwide_ for putting on the Yak Attack with help from the legendary Nepali locals AJ and “Snow Monkey”, the ultimate fixer in Nepal. Also a big shout out to my moto driver @puspha_mrjn who kept me safe for hundreds of kilometers of river crossings, hugging single tracks on cliff walls with drop offs into an abyss, and getting me from point A to B to Z in one piece and in a timely manner. Finally and most importantly to @gettyimages and @lumix for sponsoring the shoot across the globe and my wonderful wife @lem_girl who holds down the fort and looks after our boys @the_real_shrek_13 @micah_man_1 while I’m away. Can’t wait to get back home! . . #hardwork #longassignment #onassignment @gettyimages @lumix #gettyimagesforlumix #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack

Hitting a wall... Jose Maria “Chema” Ordejon of Spain bikes around a donkey leaning on a wall in a narrow street during the Yak Attack 2018. Everyday the riders had multiple challenges from narrow and crowded town streets, to single tracks with cliff drops, to ventricle climbs and downhill descents. . . @gettyimages @lumix @_mtbworldwide_ #gettyimagesforlumix #yakattack #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack #wanderlust #explore #wander #traveler #photooftheday #travel #travelphotography #mountain #instagood #travelblogger #travelling #travelholic #travels #traveller #adventure #mondays #mondaymotivation

Nienke Oostra of Scotland bikes during the Yak Attack 2018 from Thorung La Pass to Kagbeni descending from 5,416 metres to 2,800 metres and complete stage 5 of the 2018 Yak Attack. Nothing but respect for Nienke and the rest of the riders who overcome serious mental and physical fatigue and oxygen deprivation to finish the race. . . @gettyimages @lumix @_mtbworldwide_ #gettyimagesforlumix #yakattack #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack #wanderlust #explore #wander #traveler #photooftheday #travel #travelphotography #mountain #instagood #travelblogger #travelling #travelholic #travels #traveller #adventure

Yak Attack 2018, road from Manang to Thorung La Base Camp. Rider crosses a suspension bridge spanning across a river with the Himalayas in the background. Hands down one of the most intense races I’ve had to cover, just getting my gear around the course and getting ahead of the riders every stage was a serious struggle. . . @gettyimages @lumix @_mtbworldwide_ #gettyimagesforlumix #yakattack #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack #wanderlust #explore #wander #traveler #photooftheday #travel #travelphotography #mountain #instagood #travelblogger #travelling #travelholic #travels #traveller #adventure @natgeoadventure

Yak Attack 2018, the Pass. Franck Gardrat of Italy speaks to his family on a sat phone at base camp under the Milky Way before the ascent of Thorung La Pass at 5,416 metres (17,769 ft). Hands down one of the most intense races I’ve had to cover, just getting my gear around the course and getting ahead of the riders every stage was a serious struggle. . . @gettyimages @lumix @_mtbworldwide_ #gettyimagesforlumix #yakattack #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack #wanderlust #explore #wander #traveler #photooftheday #travel #travelphotography #mountain #instagood #travelblogger #travelling #travelholic #travels #traveller #adventure @natgeoadventure

Been up in mountains in Manang and Thorong Lo Base Camp last 3 days with no internet, hot water, or heat. Crazy experience, but made it up and over Thorong Lo Pass today at over 18,000 feet. Seen some of the most amazing landscapes I’ve ever laid my eyes on. Hats off to these athletes who’ve have done 170km with 7500 of elevation climbing so far after 4 stages. Amazing watching them carry their bikes up 1000 meters on their shoulders up to the peak at 5416 meters. Here are photos of our approach to Manang a couple days ago, will post the next stages shortly. @gettyimages @lumix #gettyimagesforlumix #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack #wanderlust #explore #wander #traveler #photooftheday #travel #travelphotography #mountain #instagood #travelblogger #travelling #travelholic #travels #traveller #adventure @_mtbworldwide_ @natgeoadventure

2nd stage of the 2018 Yak Attack starts in two hours! The first slide is the view from the start from the idyllic town of Tal straight out of a fairy tale where we slept last night (the purple house), the 2nd slide is the GPS map of stage 2 from Tal to Manang today. The stage is twice as long as yesterday with 2,300m of climbing today (ending at 3,500m) to be an epic day of mountainbike riding in the Himalayas! Follow me for photos and race updates daily, internet depending 😉 . . @gettyimages @lumix #gettyimagesforlumix #Lumix #LumixGH5 #LumixG9 #Leica100400 #Leica818 #LeicaLens #nepal #khatmandu #himalayas #himalayan #yakattack #wanderlust #explore #wander #traveler #photooftheday #travel #travelphotography #mountain #instagood #travelblogger #travelling #travelholic #travels #traveller #adventure @natgeoadventure
