I am an experienced Mountain Leader, Navigation Coach and Photographer with over 15 years’ experience leading groups with various levels of experience across the UK and also in the Pyrenees of Spain and Hills of Malawi. As a keen instructor and coach I have taken great pleasure in training service personnel in Navigation Techniques and Mountain Skills for more than 15 years.

Sharing the passion is something I am very passionate about; educating people on the pleasures that can be had from being in the hills & mountains is a very rewarding experience. I take great pleasure from coaching; seeing clients gain confidence both in navigation and mountain skills is extremely satisfying. Hearing tales of their solo explorations in the mountains is indication of a job well done. See my Mountain Leadership page for more information.

Photography

As a self-taught landscape / seascape photographer I love to capture the amazing scenes experienced on my journeys, as a result, when on my own agenda, I often find my route planning to include the potential for a good image. I'm also proud to say that I was shortlisted in the Outdoor Photographer of the Year in both 2016 & 2017.  You can view my image portfolio here.
