Life has been a whirlwind since starting to shoot mountain biking professionally 6 years ago. I moved to Chamonix in 2018 to be in the middle of the most extreme landscape in Europe and it has not disappointed. I love the history, the wild unexplored feeling of the terrain and of course the amazing winter seasons too.
Photography began as a side-show to my bike riding as a teenager; a way to show off the ‘huge' jumps we were doing back in the day. When I started to travel I took a keener interest and before travelling to Morocco one summer, I invested in a dubious film SLR on Ebay. After going digital, I hired the holy grail of lenses, the 70-200 f2.8, ahead of what would ultimately be a life-changing trip to the Fort William World Cup in the Scottish Highlands.
In my earlier days I was quite obsessed with zoom and bokeh, but over the years I learned to shoot wide and love the artistic challenges that photography always brings. I think documenting bike racing is among the best for pushing your creative problem solving; forcing you to shoot out of your comfort zone, while the competition keeps you humble and pressures you to up your game.
