• Compare and Contrast

    Arc’teryx’s recent Jonathan Siegrist videos offer the perfect opportunity to compare and contrast two climbing video production styles. The first one’s by Andy Mann, who happens to be a frequent contributer to Climbing magazine. The second one’s by Keith Ladzinski, who happens to be a frequent contributer to Rock & Ice. Interestingly, both Mann and Ladzinski are ¬†still photographers mostly, but that certainly doesn’t seem to limit them in any way. I think both videos do a perfectly fine job of presenting the climbing, but for what it’s worth, I like Ladzinski’s better because of the humor, and for bringing out more of Siegrist’s personality. Which do you like?

    Zachary lives and works in Boone, North Carolina. Bad or good, rock climbing’s his most entrenched habit. Frankly there’s nothing he’d rather be doing. Fortunately climbing helps him meet great new people, and spend wonderful quality time with his soon-to-be wife. Without climbing, and the wonderful and weird people of the climbing world, he might be a loathsome hermit. When Zachary’s not able to climb, he distracts himself with work, swimming holes, and climbing media of various sorts, including this blog site.

    Kinda prefer Mann’s videography- I like to see the holds before the climber latches ‘em; makes the movement of the climber seem more purposeful.
