ART 30th Dec 2013 Art is not a crime

A couple of weeks ago I had the unexpected pleasure of visiting an amazing gallery jam packed with some of my favourite artists work. The prospect of seeing two piece’s in particular which I’d only ever seen in photographs before really excited me, by the time I arrived I was practically buzzing! From where the Tram stopped it was just a short walk through the rain soaked streets. I paused...

Graff 15th Dec 2013 Jimmy Roe Parkin and the Masters of Graff

It started with a Block! Some time back in the summer of 2012, or at least that was when I decided to do something about my steadily growing addiction! I'd dabbled for a few years, nothing major. I certainly hadn't immersed myself fully into it like some had. I hadn't needed to! But then along came that block and it changed everything. Obviously it wasn’t just a block. It was actually a huge...

McClureGlasby 18th Oct 2013 Pareti - Italian Climbing Magazine

Great to See my work featured this month in the Italian climbing magazine Pareti. They contacted me a month ago in connection with a Ste McClure interview they were planning on running. After a few "back and fourths" between the editor and I, they sent me through a PDF of the finished article. To my suprise they had chosen to only use a selection of my images, which made me feel very proud to be...

Stange sunset 16th Oct 2013 Autuminal Evenings

Autumn is a time of the year I really love. For one it drops a few degrees cooler and if anything I prefer the winter months to the summer. But like most its the total explosion of Colour that I really love. I was lucky enough to be out at one of my favourite climbing edges, Stanage, the other evening and was rewarded with a lovely warm sunset, not the best ever, but lovely none the less. I for...

Ruth Don Valley 10th Oct 2013 SAVE Don Valley Stadium

Sheffield is my hometown. I moved here because of its proximity to the Peak District and the climbing. Sheffield is a city with a sporting pedigree, not just in terms of climbing. It's produced numerous boxing world champions, premier league football teams and of course most recently Jessica Ennis, the 2012 Olympic Heptathlon champion and face of the games. Jessica Ennis grew up in Sheffield and...

Dartmoor bouldering 0001 14th Sep 2013 Hound Tor to Hay Tor - Dartmoor

I recently spent a wonderful couple of days down in the south-west of England climbing on the Tors of Dartmoor. It's a rugged location and when the weather is, shall we say "not the best" it can be a very inhospitable place. But when the sun shines and your with friends it really is a rather joyus affair.

Hasselblad 5th Sep 2013 Hasselblad (In the) Wars

It wasn't so much of a war, as a skirmish! But it annoyed the hell out of me.   Big pack, cameras, flash system, 3 light stands, tripod, waterproof (essential in Briton) walking poles (it helps when you get to my age) food and water. A flat, easy 45  minute Hike  to the location, it's day and attempt number two to shoot a portrait, a portrait that illustrates the man, the equipment behind...
