Epic Ice Nights Shoot Captures a Climber Scaling a Massive Ice Wall in the Dark

Photographer Ray Demski recently teamed up with climber Alex Luger to shoot a project he’s dubbed “Ice Nights.” Shot entirely at night using several powerful flash units and a medium format camera, the shoot looked to take ice climbing photography to a whole new level.

The idea was to go on location and get some studio-quality shots of Luger climbing a massive ice wall at night — an idea we’ve only seen tried once before. To make it happen, Demski enlisted the help of several assistants and a whole load of gear including three Broncolor Move 1200 L’s and an IQ180 w/ 645DF courtesy of Phase One.

They chose a location near a bridge that would give them the most flexibility lighting-wise, and got to work. Flashes were set up above and below the main ice pillar, in addition to assistants hanging from ropes on the sides, to get the scene lit just right.

Here are a few of Demski’s final shots and one behind the scenes pic:
