Excellent article, I must confess I've never thought of scrambling photography as a specific different category. The images in the article are superb, as you'd expect from Nadir.

Also interesting to hear he often uses quite a high ISO (800 upwards), as this is something I find I do a lot to keep up the shutter speed when bobbing about in a canoe. The result is often the narrow depth of field that is so effective in a coupe of his shots. Obviously this isn't always, or even often, the desired result but I am quite partial to it.

Yes a cracking little article. My mantra about getting people in bright clothing is an ongoing thing. Also as is directing the action and most folks don't mind especially if they think you'll post them a pic. I'd add that generally it's better to be out in front so as to look back to get the faces of climbers rather than backsides. Also on really grey days think of converting to B&W. Lovely pics to illustrate the article.
