THE ELEPHANT IN OUR ATMPOSPHERE / Like the Wind

How do you engage people with a slow moving problem like air pollution?

In July 2015 I went into the Chilean Andes and climbed 31,000m. This is my story from my daily journey to get some perspective on the smog in the city below.

The Art of Fastpacking / Men’s Running

tweet-fastpackOUT NOW – In Men’s Running magazine this October, you can read our story of wild camping and running 156miles through harvest-ready fields along The North Downs Way.

It’s an introduction to fastpacking – a fusion of hiking and running where light rucksacks mean you can cover long distances quick.

Men’s Running magazine commissioned words and photography for an adventure-special 6-page spread.

Salomon Glen Coe Skyline™ / Red Bull

Red Bull wanted an inspiring make-me-feel-I’m-there-on-the-mountain-with-you story from the UK’s hardest and most dangerous running race.

Completing the race’s 55km with 4,700m of ascent felt like feeding my quadriceps very slowly through a meat grinder. People clearly like that kind of schadenfreude stuff and Red Bull quickly pumped my suffering out on their global channel to an audience of 2.14million.

Vertical Kilometre – The format is simple: competitors charge up steep mountains climbing 1000m over a course usually no longer than 5km.

This September I was in the Highlands of Scotland for the Glen Coe Skyline weekend. This first article about the weekend for Red Bull was an SEO friendly, quick turn around round-up of this popular new event.

“Hi, my name’s Kyle. It’s seven o’clock in the morning, and I’m naked in Kyrgyzstan!”

That’s the opening line from The Road To Karakol, which screened at Matt Heason’s annual Sheffield Adventure Film Festival (ShAFF) in 2014.

This month for Red Bull I interviewed the man behind the choices behind the cameras at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival.

Tribal Trails / Trail Runner magazine USA

[:en]The indigenous Rapa Nui people of Easter Island believed for 500 years they were the only people left on Earth. In the USA this September you can read about the barefoot, banana carrying trail race that is the product of such isolation and sporting heritage.

The article was a collaborative effort with Los Angeles photographer and friend James Kao who I met on the island this February. Read the first page below.
