I live amongst the fells in the English Lake District. What I get excited about is out there every time I look outside my bedroom window each morning.
I love the natural landscape, wild places and in particular the mountains. To be amongst them, climb them, walk them, listen to them, with the free wind on my face and the sun on my back, to photograph and write about them is all I ever wanted.
So my photography and my writing is all about a passion, a life long love affair, with the hills. Everything I’ve done comes from that.
This website is designed to show you something of my work, tell you what’s going on in my life, and share a little of the passion with you.
An entertaining, illustrated and characteristically chatty evening covering the Birkett family’s (4 generations) involvement with the crags, climbing, walking and living in the Lakeland Fells.
