Adventure and documentary filmmaker / photographer Rob Frost hobbled into our studio recently after going through an experimental new surgery to help rebuild his shattered heel after a climbing accident. Although his mood was hopeful and positive about the recovery ahead, we got a chance to dive into some of the darkness that exists when you are sidelined from an injury and not able to do the work you love and forced to reevaluate the things you hold dear. Rob tells us about growing up a young rambunctious kid in the northeast and pushing the limits with his friends even then. He was a ski racer at a young age, but soon fell in love with rock climbing. After college, he found himself working as a climbing guide but started to work on a small movie about the local climbing scene that would quickly change his life. After the movie found it's way to the Banff Film Festival and helped Rob launch a new career path, he quickly began to attract the attention of others and began to travel the world shooting the adventures he loved. Rob has had the opportunity to shoot for a huge roster of clients, cover the world famous Iditarod dog sled race for years, and was nominated for an Emmy for the work he did for 60 minutes filming a piece about the free soloist climber Alex Honnald. We wish Rob the best of luck and the speediest of recoveries and hope to see him hanging from a rope soon doing what he loves best.
