Mike Hamill is a professional mountain guide, writer, and photographer. He regularly leads expeditions to the mountains of the Seven Summits, among others, and has climbed all of the original Seven Summits at least four times, some as many as twenty. He has climbed them all in the course of one year several times, finishing them in 2008 in 220 days, the tenth fastest time to date. Mike was featured in the Discovery Channel’s television production entitled Everest: Beyond the Limits. Mike has been guiding for more than a decade and calls Seattle home when not on the road. He began his climbing career on the steep rock and ice of New England and New York State while obtaining a bachelor of science from St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. He hails originally from Hanover, New Hampshire, and Bridgton, Maine.
Mike has a great eye, and really knows how to capture the right moment. Dedication to long term projects with big risks and big rewards is his way of life, and we are proud to display his finest work and support his projects in the Kalākora Gallery.
