Choosing the Right Hiking Boots

One of my New Years resolutions for last year was to be more like James Bond. As I said in my blog post about it, in any situation he’s capable and ready for whatever comes his way. It’s a very masculine trait, and for the brief time I was in the cub scouts as a kid, I remember the motto as ‘be prepared’. 

I’ve never been one for ‘hiking’. I love walking, and will spend all day wandering cities around the world, but trekking through the outdoors has just never really been a huge part of my life. Not because I’m adverse to it, it’s just never happened all that often. The result of that is a serious lack of the right gear, notably footwear!

Childhood Nostalgia

Maybe it’s a mid life crisis, I’m on a bit of a nostalgia trip right now. It’s fun looking back at some of the things you did or enjoyed during your childhood. As a kid you do what you like, rather than what others think is cool. It’s something that’s missing in this modern social media world. So I’ve been looking back at who I used to be, and getting back in touch with my inner child.

What’s amazed me is how many aspects of my life growing up are still relevant to the things I’m interested now. This post is quite long, so I recommend getting a cup of your favourite childhood beverage, sitting back and coming on a journey with me through some of the things that have defined me as a person, and what I plan to embrace more of in the future!

Carnivore Diet - Week Nine

I started week 9 of my carnivore diet experiment with a trip to the butcher. I got myself a big slab of ribeye and for the second time, 3 slices of calves liver. Liver is still not my favourite, but it’s so healthy I’m gonna hopefully get used to it. Would help if I could work out how to present it in a more attractive way haha!

So steak and liver for dinner was my first meal of what would turn out to be an interesting week for this diet.

NYC Behind the Scenes Video

I’m a bad youtuber. I know the key to growing on YouTube as a platform is consistency, but editing videos takes way longer than I can be bothered with. Capturing interesting video is also far more time consuming than still photography, due to things like alternative angles and b-roll being important to making movies more interesting and compelling. 

On my recent trip to New York City with Olympus PEN, I was lucky that we had someone with us capturing some behind the scenes footage for us.

Olympus PEN x NYC

Back in May I found myself ticking off the number one place in the world I’d never been... New York City! People were usually shocked when I told them I’d never visited NYC. It was always somewhere I’d longed to see, but the opportunity just never came around until recently.

Fortunately Olympus decided to use New York as the backdrop for promotional images for the new blue version of their E-PL9 camera, along with a whole host of other content they were looking to capture. To say I jumped at the chance would be an understatement!

How I Edit Photos When Travelling

I love travelling, and I’m so lucky that my job has taken me to some epic places around the world. Obviously it’s important for me to have all the tools I need to do my job, but it’s just as important to be able to travel light.

Over the past year, I’ve downsized and streamlined my travel workflow massively, whilst at the same time, increasing my time efficiency, and I thought I’d share my process with you lot.
