Behind the Lens Of Adventure PhotographY
Mahting has been running around wild places since his childhood in the midwest. After high school, he flew west in search of high mountains and steep rock walls. In college he learned the craft of a mountain guide and spent years teaching those skills to others. Honing in on a natural talent, he transitioned to photography to capture images of people moving through wild terrain. His experiences as a guide, climber, cyclist and runner give him a singular perspective on both sides of the lens. Mahting hopes his photos inspire others to protect wild spaces; his dedication to conservation can be witnessed in his promise to donate portions of his earnings to nonprofit organizations. In other parts of his life, Mahting is the lead guide for the annual Legendeer Expedition and owns the Hunt To Eat apparel company, both connecting people to the outdoors they love.
