Stephen Forster Photo Submission

I recently entered one of my favourite photos into the Stephen Forster Photo Challenge. My photo was posted on Bomb Flow Magazine's website which I'm quite pleased about with it being one of the leading media drivers on the white water kayaking scene at the moment.

Last Post of Second Year

Well that flew by. Last Friday saw me hand in my last piece of work for the second year of my degree. The piece was a 10minute film (link below). I'm not particularly proud of the final piece as it was a last ditch attempt at getting a grade as my original plans to make a whitewater kayaking film ended up failing due to plans falling through and not creating solid enough links with the Carlisle Canoe club YET. My film "follows CRAIG CHARTERS and GAVIN HART's week long mountain biking expedition around the Seven Stanes of Scotland." 

However its the summer now and am looking forward to working as a paddling and climbing instructor in the USA! So keep up-to-date on here and my facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/HARTridethestorm )

I've spent the last few days securing my visa for working in the USA. I should now be able to work out there over the summer now. Super excited.

My friend also finished editing his film this week that I helped film. A film about how Miles Hickey is dealing with being diagnosed with cancer and his adventures in the outdoors. The film is on Youtube at the link below.
