Been climbing since I left school. Started climbing with my dad and once I started working at Wildtrak in Newcastle on Saturdays, I found myself working and making friends with climbers and simply joined in the fun. I only worked their for 4 weeks but it was probably the most defining job of my life.

About My Photography
I can either put heaps of effort into a single photo or simply snap impulsively. Either way, I try to make the photo as interesting as possible rather than as "good" as possible. I only have a few of my favourite photos on my UKC gallery and even then, they're just my favourite ones, not necessarily my "best" ones. My weapon of choice is a Nikon F100, That's right, I still rock a 35mm.
