I treat my writing like I treat my photography; a creative outlet.

I enjoy writing, and have written for many different organisations and publications. Often it acts as a vessel, to get my photos out in to the world; but on other occasions, the writing is the focus - particularly in my day job, as a Marketing Executive for a law firm.     

Just like other forms of art, I believe that words can have a profound impact on their consumer; they can be a catalyst for positive, or negative change.. So, as with my other creative endeavours, I always aim to purvey a positive message, that inspires, educates or motivates.

Originally a blog, on an old iteration of my website, I wrote about my experience and strategy shooting the Ryedale Grand Prix, in 2019. 

Primarily intended as a way of sharing my photos, I wanted to do more than just tell a story; I wanted to offer some value to those prepared to read. 

By sharing some experiences and tactics that put me outside my comfort zone, I hopefully inspire others to take simple steps to do the same.

Tips  |  Fuelling Cold Water Surfing

An article I was asked to write for Tribe, a performance nutrition company, about how to fuel a cold water surf session. 

Whilst I'm no nutritionist, I do have many years of real experience fuelling cold water surf sessions in the North Sea, so it was nice to share a few of my own preference.
