Iain Kuo is a ski mountaineer and professional photographer based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After quickly becoming disillusioned with a career in finance, Iain left New York City with a one-way ticket westward and has never looked back.
Since embracing his passion for the mountains, he has climbed, skied, and photographed expeditions in places such as Patagonia, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan, and the Wind River Range of Wyoming. When not traveling or working behind the lens, Iain can be found exploring the wild landscape of the Teton Range and planning for the next adventure.
Iain trains full time with Uphill Athlete both for his personal goals and to keep pace with professional athletes while carrying heavy camera equipment and shooting photos. He graduated with a degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2015.
