Bobby Model PhotoPeter Mallamo is a climber/filmmaker from North Carolina, and has been a student of photography and cinematography for half of his life. He has worked in the motion picture/commercial industry since 1989, in jobs ranging from rigging on feature films to gripping and assisting camera on commercials to shooting spots for the Environmental Protection Agency. His passion for filmmaking, which he describes as "the art of telling captivating and compelling stories with my cameras", is something that has all but consumed his life. Since 1997 Peter has been specializing in adventure filmmaking and time-lapse cinematography, with an emphasis on big wall rock climbing expeditions to remote areas of the world. His travels have taken him to places such as Baffin Island, Africa, Greenland, Patagonia and Alaska. "The greatest thing about traveling to these wild places" he says "is not only to be able to climb there, but also to have the opportunity to experience the unique cultures in the areas we visit". Peter's ability to integrate these cultures into his projects is what he believes makes his work stand apart from other adventure films. His background in the film industry gives him an understanding of what it takes to get the necessary footage to tell a story, and the fact that he feels comfortable looking through the lens of a camera hanging from a rope thousands of feet above the ground makes him a perfect candidate for the job. Peter has been lucky enough to get involved with some really great, highly motivated people who have an adventurous outlook on life and share his passion for visiting beautiful, remote places. In the process they have not only become his teammates, they are also his good friends. Peter's work can be seen regularly on the Outdoor Life Network's Adventure Quest Series, has been showcased in several film festivals and was recently chosen for an adventure series on NBC called "Adventure Odyssey".
