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.

In 1999, Jake Norton captured one of the seminal photos in mountaineering history: Conrad Anker standing over the remains of George Mallory high on the north face of Mount Everest. That image, published countless times around the world, began Jake’s career as a climbing and expedition photographer, and he is one of the most sought-after shooters in the high mountains today.

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.
