Welcome to Mark Westman Images.
My photography is a reflection of nearly 20 years of dedication to alpinism, rock climbing, ice climbing, and adventuring through some of the world’s finest mountain and desert landscapes. Climbing in all of its forms exposes me to some unique situations and views that few will ever see or experience. Through my photography, I would like to share some of these adventures with you. Here you will find exciting images from ascents of world-class climbing routes on mountains from Alaska to Patagonia, Canada to the Sierra, to the fantastic rock formations in the southwestern deserts of the United States. My primary focus with photography is towards action-oriented images of climbing and cutting-edge alpinism in the moment, always with an attentive eye to the beauty of the landscapes I visit and enjoy in the practice of this special lifestyle.
Please take the time to check out the various galleries and have a closer look. I’ve placed some of my finest and most iconic climbing images into two “select” galleries: “Alaska Range Select”, and “Patagonia Select”. When you have more time to browse, check out the much larger galleries of both Alaska and Patagonia climbing containing these selects along with many more images. For the Alaska Range, if you’re looking for images from a specific climbing route or mountain, I’ve created several galleries just for you! They are located in the "Alaska Range Climbing" category and named according to the area or mountain they highlight.
Prints of any of my images, in a variety of sizes and styles, are available for sale and can be ordered directly through this website. Simply press the “Buy” button above the photo to get started.
