Modern life flies past, and there are more things than ever to cross off your list before the Grim Reaper catches up with you. Young (and not so young) people today have a greater range of life choices than any other generation, but most will close as many doors as they open. The younger generation worries about careers, education and travel, but easily the biggest decision relates to whether or not to start a family and what you might need to sacrifice to achieve that.

I’ve rowed the Atlantic Ocean, crossed Antarctica on foot, run across the Sahara and traversed the Empty Quarter on camel. When my wife Marina and I had our first child eight years ago, however, I drew a line under the major expeditions. But Climbing Everest had always been a deep-rooted, burning passion. I wanted to do it to confront my own fears and to show my children, Ludo and Iona, that when you put your mind to it, anything is possible. My trek with [Olympic cyclist] Victoria Pendleton in support of the British Red Cross in May was the culmination of years of hard work and the realisation of a childhood dream. Reaching the summit is almost impossible to put into words. I can’t begin to explain how beautiful the view is. It was an other-worldly experience.

Tell us, David, why did you decide to study and dedicate your life to photography? Photography has been a lifelong passion for me. I started making photos when I was young and attended my first darkroom course around the age of 11. I have taken several breaks from photography but around 2006 I found that I had a renewed enthusiasm for photography and was making a lot of images and videos with my friends. Around that same time I realized that I needed to refine my understanding of certain aspects of photography. So, eventually in 2009, I enrolled in school to pursue an MFA in photography. There is something fascinating to me about the idea you have in your head when making a photograph and then seeing how the result differed from your expectations.
