The last month or so in photos...

The last month or so for me has been pretty busy . The start of the year around new year is normally the down time in any business and yes, December was pretty quiet but Jan/Feb have been far from it.

In Jan I started off with a fair bit of free time, so as most will know if you follow me on facebook I'm a rider first, and that's been the case long before cameras ever came in to the picture (excuse the pun)

Bike, Tools and camera all ready for a day in the woods
So I took this time to have some fun, ride my bike but also be productive in building some new tracks near me with the intention of shooting on them when the time/rider/project all falls in to place. Drifty, steep, loamy, fast, just the kind of stuff you can put a top rider on and get some golden footage and shots. One of those tracks got a little bedding in by a few of my mates Si and Jimmy, they wont light the WCs up, but they are good riders...

Jimmy Smith tearing the fresh loam up

Devon Winter Loam on

Shooting Wideopen rider Jay Williamson on some Cornish Coast path stuff was great, photos I have had in my head for some time now and was good to finally get them realised...cant put the final ones up just yet thanks to them being used places but here's a peek I tweeted at the time...

Not a bad office eh ?

And a peek at one of the final shots...
 Then it was on to the London bike show for Pinkbike, a good few days there, lots of new stuff seen, networking, shooting, just good times staying with my mate and fellow rider/Filmer Chris Seager.

While down there I took a day or 2 out to be a tourist in London and shoot some photos and Time lapses...

Shooting time lapses at tower bridge

And on the underground

London night time lapse...

While I was down in that part of the world I also took a few days out to go and shoot with a mate of mine who also happens to be DMR pro rider and all round shredder Olly Wilkins and also Berny Kerr and Sam Reynolds...Few good shots from all that as well, again, cant put much up but " here's one I tweeted earlier "

Olly roastin some trails at his mates place

Olly again tearing it up on the short trav
Boosting the shit out of a hip you may have seen in some recent videos...

From there there was a day in a friends studio helping him with some Uni work and playing about with some mates and shooting a local race at Tavi woods...

My mates Joe and Chris getting a bit weird " HAHAHAHA take a photo now! NOW! "
 Feb saw a nice trip to south Spain with Wideopenmag and RoostDH, big hills, sun, no need for a coat, good mates, even better house and uplift...whats not to love there?!

See that? Sun, dust, mountains, the beach, bikes...all good....

The view from my office for a week

Bit of shooting in South Wales with Rowan Sorrell for a few things, a bike race round the world in Greenwich in London again, Icebike, Woburn with Blake Samson for Saracen and racing in my first DH race in 4 years...all in all, not a bad few March, bring it on!
