First up, the website you're reading this on is powered by SmugMug. Bought a print from me? That was handled by SmugMug. Like a post on my Instagram feed? I used SmugMug to put it there. SmugMug is an unbelievably powerful tool that allows my clients and I full access to my entire photographic catalogue, anywhere in the world. At the click of a button.
Peak Design not only revolutionised the way that photographers think about carrying and storing their gear, they have changed the way we use it too. Want to know how I use my PD gear? Look at this. The PD website is flipping awesome too, have a look at it here.

I hate the litigious nature of seeking out insurance and finding people that will insure my gear, my appliances, my camera stuff, my laptop ... Trōv puts the power in the palm of my hands, literally, allowing me to Go Ahead™ – with the flick of a switch in the mobile app I know that my gear is covered. It's genius.
A team of the most innovative and creative people in the climbing-tech sphere right now. The VL crew are bold, inventive and are going places. Working with them as an ambassador and a content creator is a unique and very gratifying process.
MagMod gives me the ability to modify light, on the fly, using durable and versatile tools. Products like MagBeam and MagSphere have enabled me to shoot subjects with light that would be impossible to create in any other way.
Customisable, versatile, strong as hell, hard as nails AND stylish too; 3LT tripods have never let me down. Not only do they keep my camera steady ... they also double up as all-terrain light stands and make a pretty decent weapon too. Just saying.
Batteries keep my gear charged. Coffee keeps ME charged. Rinaldo's Coffee, based out of Kendal in the Lake District roast single origin speciality beans from all over the world, as well as selling the best gear to prepare it too. There's no doubt about it, without my daily dose of Rinaldo's, I wouldn't get the job done.
Simple, minimalist, functional products for training in the climbing gym or getting after it on the rock. Style first.
"Not bad for a fat lad" ... that's what Megos says to me when I impress him. And when it comes to climbing, impressing Alex ain't easy. So ... I deploy as many tricks and helping hands as I possibly can; having the best chalk is one of those. Now Alex needs a carrot sponsor.
I put sustainability, environment and fair working conditions at the forefront of my purchasing decisions when it comes to work gear, fashion, cameras, everything. It's not always possible to be 100% clean/etc but teaming up with Patagonia Europe to make sure my day-to-day gear is as ethical as possible was a great moment for me. On top of that, it protects me from the elements better than anything else I have owned; and looks stylish AF too. No brainer.
