I was born and raised in western Montana, which instilled in me a love for the mountains and outdoors. I’ve been mountain guiding and instructing since 2007 and this job has led me on many mountain adventures from Antarctica to Alaska.
When I am back in Montana I am usually asked, “So where are you off to next?” Photography and guiding keep me on the move, but lately home is either McMurdo Station, Antarctica, Missoula, Montana or Anchorage, Alaska–depending on the time of year. I’ve led eight Denali expeditions with Mountain Trip and have guided on Aconcagua, in Patagonia, and scores of ascents of Mount Shasta.
Photography is a huge part of my life and I have a website on which I share and sell my work. If you’re interested, please visit it at Ben Adkison Photography.
