In photography Phil Mislinski has found the perfect outlet to combine his love of the outdoors with his technical inclinations. The former aerospace engineer does the sports he shoots ("some much better than others," he points out), lending integrity to his images. His fitness level also allows him to get to locations deep in the backcountry on foot, mountain bike or climbing rope.

The core of his photography focuses on outdoor sports, travel, and lifestyle images.

Mislinski co-authored the "Trail Runner's Guide to Colorado: 50 Great Trail Runs" (Fulcrum, 1999), which led to the launch of Trail Runner Magazine .
