I have written engaging and authentic content for many outdoor brands in Europe for various climbing and mountaineering campaigns. I can tailor the copy to suit a broad, mainstream audience, whilst maintaining authenticity within the climbing sphere.
My photography and writing has appeared in many publications across the world, including Climbing Magazine (USA), Gory Magazine (Poland), Klettern Magazine (Germany), Rock and Snow Magazine (Japan), Climb Magazine (UK), Climber Magazine (UK) as well as in more mainstream newspapers such as The Independent (UK).
As well as traditional print media, much of my work has been published online, including countless articles, photographs and reports on UKClimbing.com (UKC), of which I was the Editor in Chief until early 2016.
UKC is one of the world’s busiest and most respected climbing websites. I started work at UKC as Assistant Editor in 2007, and took over as Editor in Chief in 2008, commissioning, managing or creating virtually all the content on the site until I stepped down from that all consuming role in 2016 to concentrate on mountain guiding.

Alongside my work as a climbing journalist I have been actively involved in climbing guidebook publication and editing for Rockfax guidebooks.
My first guidebook North Wales Classics was published in April 2010 (pictured right).
My second guidebook was also to North Wales, but covered a much larger area.
My photography has been published in several other Rockfax guidebooks, including Pembroke, Mallorca and Cote d’Azur and I have edited other books such as Winter + and Western Grit. I have also authored numerous online Miniguides to big wall routes across the globe.
