I had the pleasure of working alongside Sealskinz shooting some adventure content in the Lake District with two friends. the brief of the shoot was a 24 hour micro adventure using the products to keep warm and dry up in the Lake District UK, the content and adventure was all shot organically as two friends and myself explored a new hill, heres just a few of my favourite shots from the shoot.
Heres just a few of my favourite images from my recent trip to Iceland at the start of 2019
Iceland is a place I can’t describe with words and I would rather let the above photographs tell the story of our recent trip. I first visited Iceland in March 2018 and since have returned a further 3 times in the space of a year, its hard to describe the feeling but when I return to Iceland I feel like I’m back home. This country has some magical hold on a lot of people drawing you in. I travel to a lot of places with work and for fun however I’ve never experienced post trip depression like returning from Iceland, I’ve considered moving here as I feel so strongly about this island. It won’t be long before I’m back thats for sure, for now enjoy these photos and don’t forget to follow the journey on my instagram. www.instagram.com/tomakher
As some of you may already know Montane is a client of mine, and we have worked together on some clothing projects. they were kind enough to do a featured article about me and my photography / expedition to Iceland. Please follow the link to see full article
We left Sheffield on December 27th for the Highlands on a photography mission during the shortest daylight hours of the year. After an 8 hours drive freezing cold temperatures not much screen wash we arrived at Gelncoe.
Just as I remembered the scenery around here is worth driving up the view from the road alone, after a few snaps on the way we headed for Fort William for some food. Not long after eating I was keen to find a good spot to camp we eventually decided on a layby on the side on the way to Geln Etive behind a fell photographer in his VW T4. Temperatures reached -6*C with harsh winds and snow throughout the night with no heater we were a little chilly. Despite the cold we woke for sunrise to a fresh dusting of snow, one of the most amazing locations I've ever camped. Shortly after driving towards Geln Etive on the very poorly maintained road we hit a pot hole resulting in a pretty loud bang. a knocking noise began to get worse from the front left corner of out T5 as we drove towards Glen Etive. By that evening we realised a spring on our coilovers had snapped resulting in us waiting for the breakdown truck to recover us back to our hotel where we would remain stuck for the next 2 days in the middle of know here with no transport. 4 recovery trucks and 350 miles later we arrived back in Sheffield, not the trip we had hoped for however an amazing one day in Scotland before the van let us down.
You will be glad to know Lenny (Vw T5) has had all new springs and shocks and is running better than ever, ready for attempt 2.
