The Outdoor, Wild, Open Water Swimming & Freediving Communities offer an extraordinary raft across a global community of sea. Living on a small island & photographing the wilder glimpses of the inner & outer Scottish Hebrides, this resource makes a tangible difference to daily life. Making new friendships & connections gifts an access to a knowledge-base, as wide as it is deep. These platforms are home to such extraordinary talent & shared interests - writers, artists, poets, journalists, sportsmen & women across the dynamic surf, triathlon, swim & diving worlds. These communities are an integral part of my daily physical & emotional safety - to check in with myself, the environment, basic safety, gear, & to ensure I'm good to go. It has also, unexpectedly, gifted opportunities for expanding my own interests & professional freelance work. A snapshot now of some new projects in hand...
