This Just In: Marcos Ferro Shows His Love

Mexican rock climber Isabel "Chere" Silva climbing kraken (5.12b) at the Actopan Cave, Hidalgo, Mexico.
A few years back, Marcos celebrated the completion of a big project with a large scale photography exhibit that profiled athletes across many disciplines. The idea was to pair up an action frame next to a portrait of the featured athlete. This rock climbing image was paired up with a portrait of Isabel, side by side. This particular frame is part of a set that features a fun little love story as its foundation. Marcos says: I first met Isabel during a photo shoot and little by little beyond that first meeting we fell in love. Now we are thinking of taking the next "big move" and getting married. After many shoots in many locations together, this place, the Actopan Cave is one of her favorite spots. And that is the most important thing for me as a action sports photographer, that the athlete feels confident where and with what it is being photographed. Isabel Silva is the first Mexican woman to climb a 5.13 and has now successfully completed 15 5.13 climbs.
