Ste portrait 29th Aug 2019 3 minute classic - London Wall E5 6a with Ste McClure

An occassional Series.   Somewhere back at the start of 2016 I decided I’d like to spend more time working on personal projects. Constantly creating work for others can sometimes leave you a little tired and burnt out, creating something entirely for yourself on the other hand can feel very liberating. Imagine a brief that say’s “you can create anything you want” as it's title, an open...

slate 2 14th Aug 2019 Cwmorthin - I read slate, write my own story

Timing is everything so I’m told, particularly in sex and comedy! So it somehow seems very apt that on the day I decide to post a short video I’ve just finished, based around a poem written by the the Welsh poet T L MacDonnell about a slate quarry called Cwmorthin, I’m sent a link to the BBC’s website and a news item about “Gwynedd’s slate world heritage plans put to the public” ...

Vegan - Red runner on Crib Goch 9th Jan 2019 Natural born runner

Firstly, let me just point out that my reference to being a ‘Natural born runner’ is in fact me trying to be humorous! Anyone that knows me will tell you I've never ‘really’ been a runner and what I do in terms of putting one foot in front of the other at a slightly faster pace than walking is certainly not natural! My running started on roads, progressed, if that’s the right...

Bulgaria 2 10th Dec 2018 Talking Bulgaria

Climb Bulgaria - Rich Mayfield interview. from Tim Glasby on Vimeo. On a recent trip to Bulgaria I was lucky enough to spend time with Rich Mayfield who most of you will know as owner of the iconic Orange House over in Spain, Mountain guide and all round advocate of anything climbing.   Rich kindly spent the week guiding Ste McClure, Neil Mawson and myself around some of the best and most...

slate 27th Nov 2018 Cwmorthin

Cwmorthin   When I run through Cwmorthin, slate shifts and settles long after the rhythm of my feet have stopped. There are no echoes rubber on blue Blaenau slate. No chisel splitting mudrock. Its monochrome landscape colour-washed by a steel sky.   But solace, assurance of my being. I don’t need to decode the QuaRry sign I read slate write my own story carved and buried years ago in...

The Beach 20th Nov 2018 Seaskyland

An elemental blending, love caught between language. Plethu-interweaving fingers   folding into each other. Seaskyland without space in between plaited palms.   A sycamore leaf, once brittle like scorched paper imprinted on sand's grained surface. Water   coursing through veins, the tide breathes life again   inhale   exhale   leaving   sculptured contours of corrugated sand mapping a...

Arctic test copy 6th Aug 2018 Arctic Monkeys and Sheffield Elephants

  It’s been just over two years and I still haven’t managed to write about so many “happenings” that have taken place. It should be simple to write a blog shouldn’t it?  But the simple fact’s are I’m a photographer and film maker, not a writer. I write out of necessity when I have to, which thankfully these days isn’t that often (i tend to try and hook up with writers and they...

Vegan - V for vegan 19th Jul 2018 Vegan Welsh 3000s

It’s hot, damn hot! and it’s not showing any likelihood of getting cooler. As Alex Hinchcliffe and I drive through the outskirts of Manchester we can see the smoke drifting across the city from a huge fire up on the moorlands. It’s been 32 degrees now for three consecutive days and believe it or not we’re heading to take part in an event which runs up and down all the mountains in North...

Bicep 5 6th Jul 2018 Flex that Bicep

Back in the depths of winter 2017 I got to work with one of my current favourite bands. The mighty duo that make up Bicep, Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar. They were on the Uk leg of their sell out world tour (Brixton sold out in just 24 hours and their Roundhouse gig show sold out 4 months in advance of the show)  They were playing a live set down at the legendry Hope Works, scene of many a...

chad 11th May 2018 Hanging with Olympic and World Champion Chad Le Clos

For those of us that run "one man(women) bands" being constantly in the limelight or "front of house" is an everyday necessary evil.   As a photographer, I let my pictures do the talking for me and like a lot of creatives, I tend to hide behind my work, or in my case my camera. I'm not overtly shy or anything, I just don't like being the center of attention.   A few years ago I got...
