Edwin grew up breathing thin Andean air in Ecuador’s high-altitude capital, Quito. He spent the first nineteen years of his life 10,00ft above sea level, where even as a child, he was inspired by his mother’s talent to shoot rolls of film on his favorite ninja turtle camera. After leaving Ecuador to pursue degrees in philosophy and environmental science in Boulder, Colorado, Edwin found both solace and connection photographing the natural beauty of the western United States. Photography had become his creative outlet, but rock climbing became the center of his world during a trip to Thailand in 2007, and it was there that he began to realize the great potential in combining his love for climbing and photography.
Edwin is living the dream as a full-time traveling climber and photographer. His current work primarily focuses on capturing some of the world’s most established climbers in their journey towards cutting-edge ascents.
Edwin lives in Boulder, Colorado.
