Pete McBride and Tim Kemple
Tim Kemple’s works have been published in dozens of outdoor publications and he has shot campaigns for North Face and Black Diamond, capturing extreme athletes in spectacular scenery. 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.
Pete McBride has spent two decades travelling the world, shooting for the National Geographic Society, Smithsonian, Outside, Esquire and companies like Patagonia, Microsoft and The Nature Conservancy. 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”.
Tim Kemple and Pete McBride will be kayaking the melting ice rivers of Greenland to plant a flag and increase awareness of the challenges facing our planet.
Travel to Greenland
A visit to Greenland is one you will never forget. Few other places combine stunning scenery, pure clarity of light and the raw power of nature. It’s the world’s biggest island, with ice covering roughly 80% of the surface. In this fascinating landscape, you can touch enormous icebergs with your bare hands and witness great glaciers calving. Prepare to be amazed by the vast contrasts of this magical island. As you walk through green valleys, kayak through some of the planet’s most spectacular fjords, or visit historic settlements rich in history and culture, the beauty of this island nation will overwhelm you. When away from the towns and settlements, you will have the chance to see the Greenland’s rich wildlife in their natural habitat.
In 1911 Roald Amundsen planted the Norwegian flag at the South Pole. Now it’s time for you to plant yours for a cause you believe in.
