Dents du Midi
December 15, 2014

I’ve just uploaded a little project that i’ve been shooting this year: Dents du Midi. The Dents du Midi dominate the Val-d’Illiez and the Rhône Valley, if you’ve ever been in the western part of Switzerland you’ve almost certainly seen them1.

Legend has it that skateboard photographer Daniel Harold Sturt once drove for twenty four hours with Matt Hensley to shoot a photo at an utterly absurd spot. When the irate owner of said spot kicked them out, within ten minutes, they got back in their car and drove the twenty four hours straight back home. It sounds ridiculous but is a believable example of how far skateboarders will go to spend fleeting moments doing what they love to do1.

  1. Actually it’s not really legend since the caption from the resulting photo says exactly this.


Domain Knowledge in Skateboard Photography

This started out as a short post intending to finish with a labored analogy against the recent Heartbleed SSL bug. The point was going to be that if i gave you the keys to the kingdom you would still be hopeless because the only way you get better at this is by sitting in the trenches for years. I decided that was a quite ridiculous analogy to make so instead just ramble on about the history and technicalities of skateboard photography. Enjoy!

Permis De Conduire
May 29, 2014

I recently swapped my UK driving licence for a Swiss one, the Permis de conduire. I thought i would document the steps involved here for anyone else who has moved to Switzerland and is interested in swapping their licence. Actually there is a compelling reason to do so, even if you don’t ever plan on driving in Switzerland; your non-Swiss licence is only valid for driving in the country for the first twelve months of your stay, and if you haven’t swapped it within five years you will have to go through a full test. That could be expensive and won’t be in English.
