Mountain Swell is run by Ryan Butterfield, a freelance action sports photographer and adventure guide.

Growing up in different parts of the globe has led his taste for adventure. His passion for photography originated from Skateboarding in the late 90's which brought him to buying his first camera. Since then it has been a huge part of his life and a never ending adventure. In 2007 he first started traveling and documenting his journey through pictures, building a career in the process. 

From Mountain guiding the Austrian Alps to running Adventure tours around the islands of Malaysia, always trying to capture his customers experiences through photos.

With a love for unique culture, a lust towards the mountains and a connection to the ocean.
