    Nans Clerc

    Growing up above Chamonix Valley in France, the outdoors have always felt like home. Admitted to Fine Arts before my entry in Academic Master of Sport Tourism, photography has emerged since then. It’s overly presumptuous to me to call it “a photographic career”, even if it’s part of my job, I mainly work as professional Ski Snowboard Instructor and Rock Climbing Instructor in the French Alps.

    “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” ― Robert A. Heinlein

    Following the example of Robert A. Heinlein, I therefore willingly yield specialization to teeming bugs! Alpine skiing, snowboarding and telemarking, regularly seasoned freeriding and touring. Running and mountain biking snap me up into stamina in one breath, rock climbing in the fusion, and alpinism when mountain sports quintessence seems palpable. More recently, aerial wanderings under my glide for great combos, and surfing.

    My attraction for versatility in performance and aesthetics does not stop there. My photography is going in the same direction. I never fail to take camera with me as soon as I get out. Vary topics and pics. Even if I’m behind the lens I love more than anything “be part of the scene”, which means for me access to the desire place and position on its own.
