Hayden’s work consists of photographs that are taken at sunrise from the summits of the highest mountain peaks in the world. He is driven by the chase to capture fleeting moments with a rich history of multi-day treks and demanding climbs throughout the night. The story of his images is not complete without the effort and risk involved, and as a result are taken without aerial assistance, portraying the scene as he witnessed it. 


As someone who spends every moment of free time in the outdoors, I am a proud member of the Nature First Photography Alliance, and strive to hold these values true:

  1. Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.

  2. Educate yourself about the places you photograph.

  3. Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.

  4. Use discretion if sharing locations.

  5. Know and follow rules and regulations.

  6. Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.

  7. Actively promote and educate others about these principles
