I work with fell runners who got me into the sport. Joined Preston Harriers shortly after my first race. Now run for Horwich for geographical reasons.
My first ever race was Belmont Winter Hill in 2006. My second was the same race one year later. I wasn’t a vet then but I am now.
As a runner I tend to prefer the short to middle distance races. My favourite races are Ben Nevis, Coniston Old Man, Wasdale Show, Belmont Winter Hill and Great Whernside.
In my spare time I do fell running, still photography and also like making short video films. I’m also a drummer and spend a lot of time surrounded by music. So I find myself in a very fortunate position. I’m able to combine all of my favourite hobbies into one. Each assisting the other.
During bouts of injury I like to film races, edit them and download them to the web.
My intention has been to try and make my films slightly different from each other, experimenting and learning from previous projects. In time I would like to put my own music to the films I make. This will ultimately be percussion/piano based.
In 2010 I became aware that people had their own blogs on the Internet. Copying this idea and setting up this site, I’ve been able to centralise some of my videos in one place and hopefully, in time, expand on a theme.
This site will be predominantly fell/hill running based. However, I do intend having separate sections on the site dedicated to other types of films. Hopefully all within the genre of the great outdoors.
I edit my films on an iMac. Previously the editing had been done on Windows Movie Maker but I upgraded to compensate for HD. The cameras I film with now are a Leica V Lux 2 and a Leica D Lux 5. For extra wide angle film I use a Go Pro Hero HD camera. Before I had HD cameras a Sony DV camera was used.
Hope you like the films. They are made for the runners and anyone else who may appreciate them.
