Island Man / Geographical

Before the time of celebrity culture, desert islands were places of wonder and personal discovery and spiritualism. Our cultural references are rich in the English language from Shakespeare’s The Tempest to Daniel Defoe’s writing of arguably the first ever novel, Robinson Crusoe.

In April 2017 I was “shipwrecked,” on an islet in the Pearl Island archipelago, a few hundred kilometres off the Pacific coast of Panama. I wrote a few articles about the cut and thrust of our 8 day survival experience (Outdoor Fitness, Blue Ridge Outdoors and Get Out There) and created a photo set and short film now found at Desertislandsurvival.com.

This article for RGS Geographical was a bit different. You can read an extract from the current issue below.

Heart of Darién / Geographical

In May 2017 I travelled to the Panamanian jungle on the border with Columbia. My goal was to photograph and write a story about the opportunities for the area following the disarmament of FARC.  

The Royal Geographical Society published the feature in their December 2017 issue.

Running with Wolves / Men’s Running

In late August 2017, I travelled to Västmanland Sweden for the BBC and spent five days researching the behaviour of wolves with the help of local scientists and wildlife experts. 

I also managed to squeeze in five great runs through the wolves’ forest territory. A whole load of exercise, beautiful scenery and just a sniff of danger also proved to be the right kind of angle for Men’s Running magazine.

Here is the feature story and photos from running with the pack.
