A Tibetan, his yak, one light, and a phone. Dorje, a mostly nomadic Tibetan Yak herder who spends seasons on Everest, stands for a portrait. Portraiture is actually the form of photography closest to my heart. I love it. My greatest mentors are portrait photographers. It's just not something that I'm necessarily known for. Portraiture on location like this can be a bear. I look often to the location work of @marcogrob to guide me. When I have a question, I call him. Looking for inspiration and evolution through simplification, I decided to use my phone alone for portraiture on this trip. Just before I left, I got my hands on the new Galaxy S8... And I have to say, it lives up to the hype. I've shied away from serious phone photography up until now... maybe I just wasn't ready to let go. Regardless, to be able to work on location like this with what I carry in my pocket anyway is revolutionary for me. It's freeing. Dorje is sitting next to me as I write this...a little confused about all the words. It's always a combination of moment, tools, connection, and a little bit of luck. My gratitude for all those pieces coming together and the people who've made it possible. #EverestNoFilter

Dumb question @coryrichards but how do you charge your phone on Everest and such high altitude?

I'm confused because the Sherpa in the photo doesn't match the person you tagged ... is there a method to the Sherpa names ? :)
