We are hugely grateful to the contributors that help us make each edition of the magazine. Without their imagination and generosity LtW wouldn’t exist. Our thanks go out to the writers, but also to the illustrators who create the beautiful images that accompany our stories.
We spoke to Timothée Nalet, an action sports photographer running, living and shooting in the mountains in Annecy, France. His work was featured in issue #7 of the magazine. He told us the story behind his piece and gave us an insight into what fuels him to run.
LTW: Why do you run?
TN: To get fit, to discover landscapes, to meet people, to work, to scout… to live.
LTW: What’s special about your work?
TN: I produce authentic mountain sports photography and video, while I run, hike or ski alongside the athletes. This means I am as close as possible to the action, understanding the athletes through living with them.
LTW: Tell us about your work that we published in Like the Wind.
TN: My piece is called ‘See the Light’ and was a presentation of my personal portfolio.
LTW: What would your ultimate adventure be?
TN: Maybe Hardrock, for races. And crossing the Himalayas, running, skiing and hiking in the same trip.
LTW: What is your favourite running moment (either yours or historical)?
TN: On a ridge at sunset. I had a great time taking pictures of Kilian Jornet on his way to winning his 3rd UTMB in 2011, too.
LTW: Do you have a favourite running quote?
TN: “Run as long as you can” is my favourite as it can be interpreted in many ways!
