Spent a lot of time at Poldice Valley over the past year just photographing the boys rolling down some lines having a blast on reworked freeride trails. Found these whilst trawling my hard drive for website images.
These are images from a project I did at Plymouth University on farming. This farm in Exeter supplied Sainsbury’s with organic chicken in the South West, along with Organic milk to Yeo Valley. At the opposite end of the scale we have intensive farming systems which ill be posting images of soon.
Fort William, Scotland has been on the World Cup circuit for 10 years and regarded as one of the knarliest tracks. These are some images I took in 2012, and ill be looking to do the same a month today when the 2013 season starts on this very track.
2012 was my first year photographing downhill racing and what better place to start than the British Downhill Series. Having previously just focused on surf photography for years the transition wasn’t massive due to both sports being high action, but what was noticeable was the speed in which the riders came down the hill at times reaching 30/35 mph. The UK is home to some of the best riders in the world so attending the British Downhill Series is always something to look forward to.
I came across Sutsu towards the end of last year when the shop I work for began taking stock of the sick designs. The brand from London, produce a variety of items aimed at the surf, skate and snow industry. What impressed me the most about Sutsu, is they aim to source sustainably or organically and the production factory is carbon neutral (http://sutsu.com/ethiks/). The images I have shown are just some of the summer 2013 range which I photographed for our online store, but to see more of what they offer check out http://sutsu.com/.
Most of the winter months have been taken up helping to build some killer bike trails. The main man behind these trails is Nathaniel, a young lad from Cornwall who kills its on a bike as well as with a shovel! With a lot of help from Jimmy and I things are starting to come together nicely for summer. Most of these images were taken a while back when things were sort of just starting out, well compared to how they are now anyway! Its going to be a fun summer.
