Born in New York, raised in Colorado, Keith Ladzinski’s love of photography started after buying a beat up camera from a pawnshop. His early subjects mirrored his polarized passions, skateboarding in the city and exploring the quiet mountains of Colorado. It was an unintentional education in two styles of photography and it wasn’t long before the two merged, initially into his love for rock climbing. It was here that Keith grinded it out, forging his roots in extreme sports, slowly becoming one of the most sought-after photographers in the outdoor world. Today, Keith’s work primarily focuses on natural history, extreme sports, and advertising, sending him to the furthest reaches of the seven continents on assignment for National Geographic magazine, The New York Times, Nikon, Red Bull, Adidas, Budweiser and The North Face. He lives in Boulder, Colorado.
