Exploration and Adventure

Capturing the essence of adventure has taken Keith to some of the world’s most hostile and spectacular environments. From the Eiger’s North Face to a Indonesian volcano and from Mongolia’s eagles to Papua New Guinea’s white-water caves, Keith constantly pushes the boundaries of extreme film-making.

Having fuelled his passion for wild, extreme places, the marriage of adventure and filmmaking was an obvious one. Partridge’s multi-skilled background has enabled him to develop shooting techniques and equipment that have catapulted the viewer to the steepest rock faces, the most challenging ice climbs and the remotest of locations and put him at the forefront of single-man lightweight filming techniques.

Over the past 20 years, his work has been shown on the world’s foremost media including the BBC, Discovery Channel and National Geographic and he has lectured on film-making at the Royal Television Society, BAFTA and the Royal Geographical Society. His written articles have appeared in many of the UK’s climbing and outdoor magazines.

In May 2012, Partridge reached the summit of Mount Everest. Filming alongside mountaineer Kenton Cool, they fulfilled an 88-year-old pledge by delivering an Olympic Gold medal to the summit.

His book ‘The Adventure Game’ charting his experiences in filming all over the planet was published in June 2015 and in 2017 he was offered – and accepted – a professorship at the University of Cumbria.
