Mark Seaton is a member of the British Mountain Guides and the French Mountain Guides Associations. He has guided out of Chamonix for over 27 years, during this time he has climbed and skied with people from all walks of life. He believes the most fascinating part of his job is seeing that each client is unique in that they all have completely different mountaineering ambitions. For example, on the one hand he was the first Mountain Guide to lead a blind man [with no mountaineering experience whatsoever] to the summit of Mt Blanc. While on the other hand he is one of the few Mountain Guides in the world to have guided a client up the North Face of the Eiger. Added to which he has worked for the BBC TV on several occasions, most recently as the camera safety expert for part of their seminal series “The Forces of Nature” which filmed the death defying Ibex climbing the Cingano Dam in Northern Italy. He is also the author of the successful Mark the Mountain Guide children's books which have been published in the UK, USA and France.
