Adventure Photography from Alex Buisse

View all 16 Photos

Alex Buisse is either a photographer who climbs, hikes, and treks to remote locations to retrieve images, or he’s an outdoor sports enthusiast who takes pictures of his adventures. He would say he’s both, that his photography and alpine climbing feed into and inform each other, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.
When he’s hanging from a cliff face, he doesn’t have room to transport a lot of camera equipment. He confines himself to a Nikon D800 or D4, and limits himself to one or two lenses, usually a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 VR and occasionally the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR. He keeps his gear at his waist for better balance and weight distribution, packed into either a ThinkTank Skin or a Peak Design Capture v2 on his harness.
You can’t practice adventure photography without having a few adventures, and Alex has had plenty. He’s named three mountains in Greenland and skied to the North Pole, and that’s just the beginning.
Buisse’s images capture the spaciousness of mountain landscapes along with the intimacy of climbing. His work is inspired and informed by the mountains he loves, and sharpened by the necessities that those landscapes demand.
