Photography by Jake Norton

Charley Mace and Brent Bishop make their way through the chaos and danger of the upper Khumbu Icefall on Mount Everest, Nepal.

Jake Norton’s interest in photography started along with his climbing, as he would pore over images by Vittorio Sella, Ansel Adams, Galen Rowell, and others, dreaming of the mountains, climbs, cultures, and places they captured. Later, Jake’s camera became his tool to translate the beauty of the mountains and his travels to those who were not there with him. Jake began shooting professionally in 1999, and has never looked back.

From the most extreme climates and mountains of the world to intimate, touching portraits and insights into the peoples and cultures in which he travels, Jake has worked for clients on all seven continents and his images have graced the pages of top magazines and newspapers as well as websites, books, and more. Jake is one of the lead photographers for First Ascent / Eddie Bauer expeditions, and has shot still images and video footage on seven Everest expeditions.

Many of Jake’s favorite images are shared on his Instagram feed; you can see some of them below, or follow him on Instagram for constant updates. Far more images can be found in his online database, and they all can be ordered as fine art prints and licensed as stock images for publication. Please contact us for more information.
