Guido Rey was born in 1861 in Turin. Like his cousin Vittorio Sella, he was inspired to take up mountain climbing by their uncle Quintino Sella. Rey helped open new routes and wrote articles and books on mountaineering. In 1885, he began photographing his expeditions and became recognized both at home and abroad for his photography.
