I’m a Social Documentary Photographer, which means I record human events with a camera and make interviews of people’s stories. I’ve been doing this work for 15 years full-time and my projects have taken me from Patagonia to Afghanistan to Alaska and other countries in between. Due to the nature of my work; basing myself amongst small communities of people, usually in remote places with extreme climates over long periods of time, I need good quality clothing.
I first approached Snugpak for sponsorship in 2005 after I had bought one of their sleeping bags and a Sleeka jacket. I was impressed by these products because they were extremely well made, lightweight, hard wearing, packed small and were very warm. Also the fact they are one of the last manufacturers of quality sleeping bags and insulated clothing, not only in the UK but across Europe, made me keen to promote their brand. I self-fund all of my photography projects, whether for books, exhibitions or for the BBC News and cannot afford to buy all the kit that I need so Snugpak’s help has been invaluable.
I wear Snugpak clothing everyday and their series of Softie insulated jackets together with the Ventile Antarctica smock has saved my life in extreme temperatures multiple times. I am excited and proud to use Snugpak’s equipment on every location I journey to and need other people to see and appreciate how beneficial using Snugpak quality kit can be to enhance their lives. The simple fact is that if I wasn’t able to use Snugpak’s unique range of clothing, tents, sleeping bags and luggage, I wouldn’t be able to carry out my work.
