Studying endless weather reports, we called it the night before, hoping for some nice sunlight, the morning turned out to be pretty grim but a day on the slopes is better than a day on the sofa.

Advert shot for Becoming X, find out more about the charity here LINK . The trip to Kilimanjaro raised 55'000 GBP for charity. It was an increadible experience to be part of.
Dedicated to the Sherpas on the mountain, day in and day out these men and women, carry loads from 23gk - 30kg on their back and heads.
Our team of 23 tourists employed roughly 70 porters, they carry everything from bags, tents, chairs, tables and even toilets. The thing that is most fascinating is the speed at which these guys work, from breaking down camp to reestablishing a a location, cooking food and setting the table, all in time before the party arrives
Special thanks to the guys who carried my camera batteries from 4000m down to 600m and back up again, not just one trip but two trips in one week.
Moving mountains is a charity building schools and helping kids, to create a better future for the porters and their family, with the money raised by tourists climbing Kili, they invest in new schools and books - click the link to learn more LINK

Nazaré town is an incredibly vibrant place, with tourists and locals thriving off each other, the very fabric of Nazaré town is built on an old tale about a hunter chasing a stag off the rocks, in the story the stag is portrayed as the devil, in an attempt to lure the brave knight off the cliffs. Bruno, however, throws himself off the cliffs on a daily basis, just so he can feel alive again. This is a short non narrative glimpse into the life of Nazare and bruno as a base jumper
The first of my RED reel.

Over Summer 2016 GoPro Supported us on different occasions with their incredibly powerful equipment, such as the new GoPro Hero 6, Karma drone and the nimble but very sturdy Karma Grip. We got the chance to test it all. After Tom's accident, he invested some time in small wave surfing, we traveled from his back garden in Newquay, all the way to Scotland and across the pond to Portugal.
In this episode, we follow big wave surfer Tom Butler, on his first big day back in the water, at his local break Cribbar reef, Newquay, England. Which is where Tom grew up and found his love for the ocean and big wave surfing, later on, we met up with him for a few fun sessions back in Nazaré, where Tom shares his flashback memories and gets on with his job as a big wave surfer. He's now waiting for the big wave world tour to be called on in Nazaré, so he can prove not only to himself but the surf community of what he is capable of. Also incorporated in the series is a training routine, Tom's personal trainer Pablo Sisca put together. Pablo having come from a professional athletic background, he now trains Tom and helped him recuperate after his big fall in 2016.
A short video shot for a Kids Surf Club advert, fro ASA.

I wanted to create something a little bit different, most importantly let the kids have fun!
In this series we follow big wave surfer Tom Butler through his summer routine, training and having fun on small waves - getting back on track for winter.
