“I love the natural landscape, wild places and in particular the mountains.”
My photography and my writing is all about a passion, a life-long love affair, with the hills and wild places. To be amongst them, climb them, walk them, listen to them, with the free wind on my face and the sun on my back, to photograph and write about them sharing my experiences with others, is what I have wanted to do most in my life.
This website is designed to show you something of my work and my life in the hills.
For sale in shop are my, best selling, practical, Lakeland Walking Guidebooks. Each copy ordered will be signed by myself and sent postage free throughout the UK.
Available also are copies of my classic ’Scafell – Portrait of a Mountain’. Only a few remain.
AND AS FROM THE 9TH DECEMBER 2020 YOU CAN PURCHASE SIGNED COPIES OF MY NEW BOOK
“THE GRASMERE YEARBOOK”
(Advance orders taken and dispatched postage free for Christmas).
Most excitingly, adapted for this modern age of mobile phone and tablet are the downloadable walks. These work beautifully on either phone or tablet. They can save the day should you have forgotten, map or guidebook. Download whilst in signal, thereafter they stay on your phone and can be used in-situ on the hill or in the countryside. Convenient, safe and easy. Better than hard copy guidebooks you can view an extra number of photographs per walk and at a click return directly to the map or to the walk description.
To enhance your living space, signed fine art limited edition prints of my favourite places are also on offer.
The video is a movie of a climb Ro and I made with ITV 4 filmed for ‘Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District’ programme.
The film is scheduled for release next year.
