South Georgia was also mind-boggling both in terms of wildlife and scenery. Huge snow-capped peaks, rock faces and glaciers all at sea level. The greener coastal areas are teeming with seals, penguins and other birds, it was a privilege to visit such a place. I’ll be keeping my stories updated with videos and shots from these locations so check them out to see more
I've got 99 problems and switchbacks are literally all of them!! Haha but seriously. I want to go somewhere where I feel alive. Hike while I can. Yearn for places I haven't yet seen or heard about. I want to leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but photos with memories. 2020 has been a great year so far. Can't wait for more adventures. Here are some portraits I finally took of our adventure group. Enjoy.
Last Saturday afternoon I had quite a few reasons why I shouldn’t bother heading to Snowdonia that night; for a start no one fancied coming with me, it was a 2.5hr drive, I wasn’t felling a 100% after a minor op the previous week and I had no winter gear in Tregaron. Remembering how disappointed I’d been in the past to let good opportunities and weather windows go by due to weak excuses I set about to gather what I could, I found some dusty, cobweb filed trail @adidas running shoes in the garage (they turned out to be perfect for the conditions), raided the ‘odds and ends’ box under the stairs and found gloves, hat and a head torch, borrowed my mams C1 crampons (which I planned to strap to my trail shoes) used my work thermals and socks, and put them all in my mams @ospreypacks back pack (which is amazing). I set off late on Saturday night with a podcast for company. Sunrise Sunday morning on Crib Goch and the day on the mountain is one of the best I have had to date. .
check out this little reminder from Seneca, “No one will bring back the years; no one will restore you to yourself. Life will follow the path it began to take, and will neither reverse nor check its course. It will cause no commotion to remind you of its swiftness, but glide on quietly. It will not lengthen itself for a king’s command or a people’s favor. As it started out on its first day, so it will run on, nowhere pausing or turning aside. What will be the outcome? You have been preoccupied while life hastens on. Meanwhile death will arrive, and you have no choice in making yourself available for that.” .

A humpback whale calf swimming under me it’s fins wrapped almost around me. Some of them are so playful and inquisitive spending 20 minutes at a time while its mother sleeps below. We’ve got a couple new cheaper options for trips, check out the link in bio if you’re interested in joining us!

Winter on the Arabian peninsula brings occasional rains that transform the usually dry valleys into lush landscapes that invites new exploring opportunities. Last light is my favourite time for adventures with my camera. Tap follow and share. photo @mountainlightbox
It's already 2 years ago when i did my first paragliding lessons with my friend @cloudbase.dieflugschule it is such a great feeling to hike up the mountains and fly all the way back down, a few weeks ago i did my first takeoff with skis on my feet, pretty cool thing to do as well if the snow conditions are not the best to ski down. if you haven't done a flight yet you better try it asap 😉 you will love the feeling! 🤙🏽
First video of 2020 is up! Check out the full video on YT - linked in my bio 🎬
Since picking up a camera just a couple years ago..it feels like I've done so much in a short amount of time. In reality I probably haven't done all that much but shooting photo and video for every step of the way helped capture moments that would have otherwise been forgotten.
The best part about photography and filmmaking is the trail of memories you leave behind. A few years ago I would have done anything to avoid being recorded or have my picture taken. It wasn't until I shot photos and recorded video professionally to realise how good it really is to have a catalog of memories you can look at forever.
Just put aside the likes for a second and take pictures you'll look back on with a smile. I guarantee in 50 years when you're looking through your old photographs, you're not gonna give a shit about how much engagement they got. I encourage you to simply record more or take photos during your day to day life. We live in a digital age, our generation is the first to be able to harness quality video and photos that could be stored for a lifetime.
And lastly thanks to all the photographers and models I've had the pleasure to collaborate with over the last year. A lot of the shots you see would not be possible without them! 📸🙏
When I dive, I get the same feeling as when I’m on top of a mountain. Free, content and totally at peace 💙
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @beachesresorts in Turks & Caicos was our home for a week and I loved every minute. We were there for a diving event with @paditv and had the chance to dive at some of the most epic spots around the Islands.
The wildlife was unreal - we saw humpback whales, some very playful bottlenose dolphins, reef sharks, nurse sharks, turtles, rays, eels and the most beautiful fish and corals.
Unlimited diving is included at @beachesresorts, which is amazing and such great vaue, and the resort was the perfect place to return to after a day out at sea ⛵️! All inclusive everything made me verrrryyyy happy (and full haha)!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by @mchutch5 | #BeachesTurksAndCaicos#5StarStay#TurksAndCaicos#DiveAtBeaches
