Day 27: Working on the last two films, (Deeper and Further), with Teton Gravity Research has been a huge learning experience, both in how I climb the mountains and how we document it. The cameramen are the true, unsung heroes of the films. They have to carry tons of weight, sleep with batteries, and keep their lenses from fogging during multi-day storms. For Higher, TGR wanted to step it up and shoot in 4K. I was not sure if this was possible due to the added weight of the cameras, but the cameramen embraced the challenge. Here, Matt Herriger dials in the long lens while Nick Kalisz looks on. These guys are the best in the world at what they do.
