Biography - Dave Hancock

Dave Hancock became interested in documenting the feats of some of the world's best climbers and mountaineers in 1992, after watching a National Geographic documentary about an American expedition to climb K2 in Pakistan. With no previous climbing or photographic experience he borrowed a friends Nikon, jumped on a plane and hung around K2 basecamp for 2 months.

Eight years later, he finds himself the owner of a succesful outdoor adventure and expedition company, a respected and prolific photographer, and the subject of several documentaries including a National Geographic film shot on his expedition to Argentina in 1998.

Dave's photographic work has evolved around a love of the mountains and for the world's places of pristine beauty. Here he finds the inspiration required to take great shots in abundance in high, lonely and sometimes dangerous places.

And while he blames his inability to become a world class mountaineer on the fact he is always carrying kilos of camera or film gear, he happily acknowledges he is more a photographer who climbs, rather than a climber who photographs.

Dave's images have been published in over 30 magazines, including GEO, OUTDOOR, CLIMB, and OUTSIDE, as well as countless brochures, booklets and postcards. He is also very active in tourism marketing, being a much sought after photographer for the creation of resort and destination portfolios. His stock agency is used by tourism authorities around the world and is deemed of the highest calibre

He has given high profile photographic lectures and delivered inspirational forums to a variety of audiences. In recent years he has branched into film-making for cable and network television.

When not travelling or on expedition he lives between homes in Islamabad Pakistan, and his home town of Perth, Australia
