Australian photographer Adam Gearing is constantly pushing his limits. Feeding off his passion for action sports, he uses the skills acquired over years of adventure to explore remote destinations under highly challenging circumstances. Whether dangling beside a cliff in the Rockies, trekking high on Kilimanjaro, or braving monster waves, his adrenaline-pumping feats attest to the spectacular power and complexity of the natural world. By risking dangerous consequences, Gearing transports the viewer to pristine locations many of us will never get to see. While shooting, he employs a dynamic technique – free from the constraints of a tripod – lending agility and variability to his repertoire. His spectacular shots of immaculate beauty foster appreciation and awe for the outdoors, spawning reflection on the rewards that hard work can bring.
Gearing holds a BA in Civil Engineering from the University of New South Wales. After college he moved to Canada, where he threw himself into snowsport photography landing his first magazine features. After a span as a commercial photographer, with international award-winning acclaim for his photography, he now devotes himself entirely to capturing remote landscapes and outdoor sports. Although based in Sydney, he plans on moving to New Zealand's south island to be closer to the mountains and capture the country’s mesmerizing natural diversity.
