Im climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Feb 2011....

A few months ago I was working down in the Alps photographing the world MTB race series, we drove right through the highest mountain in western Europe Mont Blanc, and looking at it from down on the road I thought I want to get up that.

I come home a few weeks later, and tell my dad who used to, back in his day be an avid hill walker and climber...he said 4 simple words that made me think hard.

Take me with you.

You may think so what ? but when I tell you my dad is registered as blind, and has lost the majority of his sight it becomes a bit more of a task.

He has a genetic disease called RP

Which in short is killing his retina from the out in, and will, in the not so distant future close up all together. Not having sight from birth must be horrible, but loosing it after 50 years of well lived life, knowing what your missing I can imagine being harder...

So we gave it some thought and said what the hell. Looked in to it all and Mont Blanc was too hard, to much climbing, to busy, to little chance of getting to the top with weather etc, so after some umming and arring, we went for the next best ( and bigger ) thing,Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa.

We have now started the Ball rolling, and it is 110% on.

We go over there and make our summit attempt on the 17th – 27th February 2011, on the Lemosho Route...and it will be the experience of a life time.

And some of the best father and son bonding you can do and that very few people manage to do.

He has dreamed of climbing one of the big mountains of the world since he was my age, and some 40 years on, with the blue badge and white stick we are going to make it happen with every ones kind support.

I will be setting up accounts on in the next 24 hours and we will start to try and get this Expedition out there to as many eye balls as we can and try and raise a lot of money and exposure for RP

Thanks a lot Jacob and Tim Gibbins

Few portraits

Just a quick update from a few weeks ago when I got some portrait shots of a few of my mates.

They wanted some photos taking, and I like the challenge and the fact its differant from bikes every once in a while.

Anyway im happy enough with them, nothing that will make the portfolio but all good.

Let me know what you think and what to work on.

The party camera!

Right first off sorry for not updating this thing for the last week. I was out in Germany covering Euro bike for and it was totaly manic! up at 5:45am, running round the show all day working, then home to edit and bed at 1-2am. rinse and repeat for 5 days and you have the last week of my life.

So not much time for updating my blog.

BUT! now im home, and have some free time, so will be updating the front page of my site, the videos page and the clients page.

And have had a sort through of some new photos of mine.

About a month ago I got a cheap as shit point and shoot, fully auto bit of crap from amazon. the thoughts being that with a camera that cheap that I dont care about I would take it everywhere, on nights out, to the beach, swimming everything and would be able to document parts of being a teenager you just couldnt do with £0000s of gear.

So for the last month its come on all my travels and gone to a few partys, and there are just a few of the one that stood out from the crowd in my opinion...Enjoy.

Will put more up in another month or so:
