July 2017 - 24 hour hike, Italy

One the most challenging shoots I've been commissioned to do both mentally and physically. We joined the legendary Hans Kammerlander on one of his, what I can only describe as, brutal and pretty dangerous 24 hour hikes through the Italian alps. Fatigued we hiked all night through torrential rain and thunderstorms on slippery ledges with sheer drops - Even Hans admitted later this had been the hardest 24 hour session he'd done to date.

August 2016 -  In search of 'Goat'

Following our Finnish Air Guitar adventure we were given a mysterious assignment that involved continuing north and head across the border to a remote Swedish village called Korpilombolo. Korpilombolo is the reported hometown of experimental Swedish rock band 'Goat' whose back-story states that the majority of the band hail from a small commune just outside the village. We arrived in Korpilombolo with with high expectations, imagining we'd find a commune in mid voodoo ritual with intense rhythmical drumming around campfires. Unfortunately our hopes were more than a little dashed. Despite probably asking all 500 inhabitants of the village and taking every road for a 20 mile radius we found no sign of a commune and that no one had even heard of 'Goat'. Our quest to find the truth about 'Goat' became the story itself - This gave me free rein to create dramatic evocative images of the village and surrounding area that somehow conveyed the mystery.
