At Cortazu, we’re proud to say Ben has been using our gear during his outdoor trips and adventures. Let’s get to know Ben a little bit better by asking him some questions about himself, his hometown and why he’s working with Cortazu! 

Why do you think you match with Cortazu so well?

Firstly, the quality of the products is amazing. When you spend a lot of time in harsh environments, having kit that you can rely on is a must. Secondly, living in the mountains in the mountains I get to see the environmental impact we have first hand. You only need to spend a day at the Mer de Glace to make you feel a little more aware about your own environmental impact. So I love the fact that Cortazu are so environmentally conscious and trying to implement change for a more sustainable future.

What are your favorite Cortazu items?

It's hard to decide, I have the Mountain Hard Shell and Insulated Mid-Layer. They pair so well together it's almost impossible to pick one!

What attracts you to traveling and photography?

Since moving to Chamonix I've been lucky enough to dedicate a bit more time to photography, in particular film photography. If I wasn't shooting film out here I probably wouldn't shoot half as much. I've particularly fallen in love with the medium as it gives me a chance to switch off. The kind of thing I like shooting is the stuff you'll see here is all from adventures in and around the Chamonix Valley, where photography isn't the primary objective and just part of the journey. Although, I do definitely but some time aside for chasing Alpine sunrises and sunsets when I know the conditions will be good.

What's your best travel memory?

So many, but if I had to name one it would be the year I spent out in British Columbia. As much as it pains me to say, we just don't get the volume of snow that they get over there. This resulted in countless back country powder days in some of the best conditions I've ever experienced.
