Mike’s passion for outdoor photography began when he embarked upon an un-supported 4000-mile bicycle journey from Gibraltar to North Cape in 2001. The scenery inspired him greatly and he decided to capture the adventure on film and lecture about the whole experience on his return to the UK.
During the past decade Mike has travelled to 30 countries capturing images of Climbers in the most serene landscapes. He has accumulated over 1000 photo credits to his name and his work has been extensively published in the world’s leading magazines and books. His editorial client list includes Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail Climb Magazine, Climber Magazine, Vertical, Klettern, Women’s Adventure, Outdoor Photography, RockFax, Summit, The British Mountaineering Council, Scottish Mountaineering Club, The Climbers Club and Derbyshire Life.
During the past 5 years Mike has lived in the Peak District. This has seen him ideally situated to capture the Adventures of some of the most talented Climbers in the UK.
He’s worked with sponsored athletes from many of the top commercial outdoors brands such as Casio, Rab, Wild Country, Mammut, Boreal, Edelweis, Scarpa, Five Ten and Sherpa. Mike’s sporting background as a Climber, Runner and Cyclist has given him the edge to keep up with some of the best athletes, which has been pivotal in staying close to the action.
Currently Mike divides his time between Editorial Commissions, Landscape Photography, Lecturing and work for Commercial Clients.
When he’s not in the UK Mike can be found travelling the globe on a quest for un-climbed rock. During the past 5 years he’s worked with The Expedition Consultancy to market trips to un-chartered territories such as The Sinai desert, Vietnam, Crimea and Sudan.
