Ellis Brigham, in association with Lifeventure, Lifesystems and Trek & Mountain Magazine are hosting three evenings to inspire the inner adventurer in you this April. Internationally-acclaimed climber Jerry Gore and adventure photographer Martin Hartley will be taking centre stage for the evenings, being held at Ellis Brigham’s stores in Manchester, Bristol & London.
Mountaineer, businessman, father, ex-Royal Marines Officer – Jerry Gore’s life has been eventful to say the least. But in 2001 he was diagnosed a Type 1 insulin dependent diabetic. This is the story of how Jerry overcame his condition, testing his blood sugar levels and injecting insulin up to eight times a day whilst attempting, aged 52, to climb the largest unclimbed Big Wall in South America, in one of the most inhospitable regions on the planet – Patagonia!
Martin Hartley is one of the world’s leading adventure travel photographers (recently voted one of the top 40 “Most influential nature photographers on the planet” and one of Time Magazine’s Heroes of the Environment), Martin specialises in documenting the most inaccessible places on earth. He has documented 20 unique polar assignments and is the only professional photographer to have crossed the Arctic Ocean on foot and with dogs. Martin will offer insight into his cold world as seen through his camera.http://www.martinhartleypolar.com
