Pete McBride and Tim Kemple

Kemple grew up climbing, skiing and travelling with his family. By the age of 16, Kemple had seen nearly all of the 50 states of his home country, but that did not stop him from seeking new adventures. His passion for exploring and photography soon became his profession, and for the last ten years he has travelled the globe chasing the world’s best outdoor athletes, from the tip of South America to the Arctic Circle.

"The shots we take of these lethal and beautiful rivers of melting ice in Greenland could wind up being the scariest images we’ve ever made"

After many years abroad, McBride decided he wanted to focus his cameras closer to home on a subject closer to his heart. He spent two years documenting the Colorado River, a body of water that sustains his family’s Colorado ranch and around 30 million other Americans. It became a 1,500 mile quest to see why the river that for 6 million years ran to the sea, no longer reaches salt water. His documentation resulted in an award-winning short documentary “Chasing Water”.

This year they will be kayaking the melting ice rivers of Greenland to plant a flag and help bring greater awareness of the climate challenges facing our planet.
