For Keith Ladzinski, the pursuit of photography has been an insatiable passion since 1995. Documenting an experience from behind the camera that can often only be found through adventurous travel, volatile weather conditions, long hard days, and the friends you rely on in sketchy situations to simply get on location. It's a culmination and a full package, one that has been deeply rewarding and unforgettable. To create images that make an impression, capture a fleeting moment, and bring the viewer on location in still frames.
Keith Ladzinski is a globally published adventure sports and environmental portrait photographer. Chasing light has kept Keith waiting days on end for the sun to break for a photo, and at other times packing in over 100 pounds of location lighting equipment through knee deep snow to get the envisioned shot.
An award winning photographer, Keith's photography has been praised by American Photo, PDN, and the International Library of Photography. The British Journal of Photography named Ladzinski to be among the top four adventure photographers in the world. Keith's editorial work has appeared on the front page of the New York Times, National Geographic Adventure, Discover Magazine, Men's Journal, Outside Magazine, Runner's World, ESPN, with photos appearing on over 30 covers.
Over the last two years Keith has enjoyed teaching workshops as been an instructor at Rich Clarkson's Adventure Photography and Sports Photography Workshops. His environmental portraits have earned him a monthly column in Rock and Ice magazine profiling some of the more colorful personalities in the rock-climbing world.
