Lena Drapella

Lena Drapella is a UK based climber and a commercial outdoor photographer, specialising in adventure sports and climbing events.

She graduated from an Academy of Fine arts, which gave her photography a distinctive feel. In her work she often focuses the attention on the subject's emotions, showcasing not only the success but also the struggle, fear, determination and joy. Lena has worked with many British and international athletes and her photos have been published worldwide.

Despite her Fine Arts diploma, Lena found photography not through education but through climbing. When she isn’t shooting for major brands or competitions Lena can usually be found skiing, climbing, surfing or on another outdoor adventure. She is a passionate advocate for environmental progress from carbon offsetting to a circular economy.
