Rob Saunders is a passionate outdoor adventurer with close to 30 years of travels and expeditions around the globe. 

Living and working in North America provided a platform to build experience in Alpine environments to ski and climb in all sorts of conditions. In recent years, achieving first ascents has became a passion as well as adventuring in unsupported sea kayak and bike packing adventures.

Sharing the experience and mentoring up and coming climbers and outdoor enthusiasts equally important.

Nathan McNeil is a multi-award-winning adventure, travel and lifestyle photographer and documentary filmmaker based on the Gold Coast. After spending most of his career honing his skills in still imagery, Nathan has turned his attention to moving pictures. 

Nathan is a firm believer that it’s not just the places you go, but more importantly, the people you share those places with that make them special. To be a custodian of those bonds and to be trusted to share those emotive insights through a visual medium is what drives his passion.
