Who are Xtreme Exposures?

Our story. Our values. Why we do it.

We're a collection of professional photographers with a passion for capturing high quality imagery of extreme sports-related subjects for commercial use.

Our photographers come from all walks of life but are studio trained as well as being mountaineers, bikers, runners and more. It is the perfection of these disciplines that ensures that when you take on an Xtreme Exposure photographer, you're getting an all-round professional.

Xtreme Exposures are highly motivated individuals who will deliver high quality still and video imagery that's tailored to meet the needs of our clients, whether commercial or not.

We operate solely for the UK outdoor industry and although we capture imagery for all sports, specialise in providing climbing, mountaineering, trail running and cycling related imagery.

Our business is owned and run by Al Topping. A British forces Veteran who trained extensively in outdoor instruction throughout his career before leaving to set up Xtreme Exposures. Al's passion for photography started well before this and grew with him.

Our instructors

Our work regularly requires us to partner with a hand picked team of highly qualified and even more experienced climbing and mountaineering instructors. These talented individuals help us bring our services to the industry and they typically provide instruction and guided experiences to commercial and private clients as well. You can learn more about them here.

Our Values

Technical Excellence

We take pride in our work. We constantly want to improve and we want to be able to offer you the best product we can. Our relentless pursuit for technical excellence ensures that you receive high quality images that, especially in a commercial environment, directly contribute to improving your sales.

Pragmatic Approach

We believe in being pragmatic in what we do. It helps save time, money and effort. No business needs to be tied up in convoluted red tape and process when it's not needed. We hate it and know you do too. This mentality flows in to all areas of our working and so we'll not faff with process or do things in a difficult way if we can achieve the same end state by doing it in another.


Nothing drives us more insane than people saying they'll do something and then not doing it. Whether it's waiting for a delivery or email to arrive or paying for a service and not getting it. It's just not right! Call us old fashioned, but it matters. So when we say we'll do something for you, we'll do it.

We'd love to work with you

Our capable team are excited to discuss your requirements and to help you to take that next step.
