Thomas Ulrich is a professional photographer, filmer, international mountain guide and high-profile adventurer. He lives in Switzerland and is father of three daughters. His career as an adventure-photographer started about 20 years ago. On assignment he climbed Cerro Torre in Patagonia, the Eiger-Northface and the Matterhorn in Switzerland, Tupilak in Greenland, El Cap in USA and he filmed on Mount Everest.
He works for well known brands in the outdoor industry and his stunning photos are being published in major magazines worldwide. With his documentaries he has won several awards on international filmfestivals.
As a mountaineer and adventurer Thomas Ulrich claimed several firsts: his team made the first ever winter ascent of the West Face of Cerro Torre and together with Norwegian Børge Ousland he made the first successful traverse of the Southern Patagonian Icecap. With the same partner he was first to follow the historic tracks of Fridtjof Nansens Franz Josef Land expedition with a ‘1400 km-walk-in’ from the North Pole. For this accomplishment they were awarded ‘Best of Adventure Honorees’ by National Geograpic Adventure Magazine.
Every year Thomas Ulrich guides polar novices to the Northpole.
