Urban Hill Climb 2018


I bloody love the Urban Hill Climb.

There aren't many events where you can get so close the athletes. As they haul themselves up the 200ft of Swain's Lane in Highgate, you can almost smell the pain of each rider. This year's edition was the biggest yet, with almost 400 crazy people racing for glory over a course that isn't even half a mile long. And if that wasn't enough, we had cargo bikes, a Brompton category and a 100kg giant from DHL tackling the infamous climb.

Fuelled once again with coffee from the excellent Apemen and the Bean, I camped out at my usual spot, right where the gradient hits a maximum and the legs are on fire...

About Me

I enjoy good coffee, have been known to do a bit of running, and derive most of my life philosophy from the Armando Iannucci Shows. I married my wife Alice in 2015, and can highly recommend this whole marriage lark!

Wedding Portfolio

My Approach

I'm an alternative to the clichéd, posed, wedding photography that you get bombarded with at wedding fairs. Unlimited coverage, informal photography, celebrating what's unique about you. I'm all about the informal candid shots of people having the best day of their lives: lots of genuine laughs, maybe some tears, and definitely some partying!
