More About the Author

I started out as "just" an outdoors photographer with very itchy feet (that can only be cured by taking the camera to lots of wonderful scenic locations around the globe!) and I've been very lucky to travel to some part of all seven continents. Having said that I'd still reckon I've barely scratched the surface of any of the seven continents - it's true that the more you travel, the more you realise just how many fastastic places there are to see on the Earth! But I've had some great trips, including a 3.5month epic across the northern and western sides of Australia, a once-in-a-lifetime semi-circumnavigation of Antarctica, and a truly amazing trip skiing across South Georgia (the sub-Antarctic island, not a state of the USA, or somewhere vaguely near Russia!)

But although photography will always remain my first love, I quickly came to the realisation that I also enjoyed writing about outdoors subjects nearly as much as I enjoy photographing them. Which has lead to writing books...

I have three published at the moment:

Cycling in the Peak District (which is a guide to some lovely routes on mostly quiet roads and non-technical trails in my "home playground" and Outdoor Photography (co-authored with Jon Sparks) which is a guide to all the sorts of photography I really enjoy in the outdoors from landscape to adventure sports, even wildlife (which I discovered I have rather more patience for than I'd have ever believed possible!) - both of these are published by Cicerone Press.

The third one is about a relatively new area to my work which I've been exploring for the last two years. Understanding HD Video is about the myriad of things you have to think about when shooting movies on a DSLR camera for Ammonite Press. It's written from the photographer's point of view, as many things about movie-making are very different to photography, and sometimes can even be counter-intuitive to those from a stills photography background. Oh, and having come from a stills background it's my natural viewpoint too...!

And I have another cycling guidebook in the pipeline for Cicerone, but you'll have to wait a while for that one...

I also write and research walking and scrambling routes for Trail Magazine and other publishers/organisations including walking festivals. As well as commissioned work, my photography has also been featured in TGO Magazine (Ed Byrne learns photography...)

In short I love being in the mountains or exploring interesting coasts, and travelling through any fantastic scenery with a camera. And as I love all of travelling, snow, speed and mountains, but hate lift queues, ski-touring is rapidly becoming one of my favourite means of transport in winter conditions!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book about cycling in the Peak District 25 April 2012
By Asa
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very good when preparing a trip to the Peak District.
We have found out where we want to go and seen the distances which is very good.
We are now looking much more forward in spending time in the Peak and not to
mention all the things we can explore there. We also find it interesting that
we will be able to cycle so much there.
