Pat Morrow

Pat's photographic career took off when he scaled Mount Everest in 1982 as the photographer for Canada's first and widely publicized expedition to that mountain. He continued a global climbing spree to the highest peak on every continent. By 1986, he reached the summit of Irian Jaya's Carstensz Pyramid, thus completing the Seven Summits project. His book, Beyond Everest: Quest for the Seven Summits, documents that hallmark adventure. In recognition of these achievements, he received the Order of Canada in 1988 and the Summit of Excellence at the 1990 Banff Mountain Film Festival.

Over the past 10 years, Pat and his partner Baiba have worked in the roles of DOP, camera operator, field producer and sound recordist on more than 40 film and video productions, most of them mountain-related. Their clients include National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, TV Ontario, the Canadian International Development Agency, and CTV.
