Travel journalism

Just as travel photography is my main area of interest as a professional photographer, travel journalism is my main professional interest as a writer. Over the years I’ve been lucky to have had opportunities to write about incredible destinations in the UK and overseas, including the Lake District, Nepal, Spain and Japan. My experience as a news journalist and features writer means I can conduct ad hoc or planned interviews in the field, and as a working photographer I can almost always file portraits, street photography, landscapes and/or wildlife photography with my copy. For me, travel journalism is an especially pure form of journalism, as it brings in news, opinion, culture and interviews – and opportunities to give readers a glimpse of life on the trail or in a distant megacity.

Most of my work concentrates on hiking and adventure travel, and any travel that is open, accessible and friendly to the LGBT+ community. Here is a sample of work for publications including The Great, Pride LifeTrail and Let’s Explore:

My travel journalism also features here on my blog, including pieces on Japan’s Sumo championships, Scotland’s toughest hike, essays on travel photography, and travels in the Lake District. I’m always in search of my next adventure, and aim to focus more on hiking and adventure journalism in the coming years. I look forward to seeing what I get to write in my travel journal as I look out for the next story…
