The Scottish Highlands is a place I’ve spent a great meal of time exploring over the past few years, and as a result a place I’ve grown to really love. When Jack Wolfskin got in touch regarding a campaign that focuses around a Hidden Gem of the Highlands I knew it was a project that I’d really be able to get stuck into.
Collaborating with Simon Hird and Sarah Rodgers, we set out on a week-long shoot through the Highlands, where each of us had chosen a specific location for us to shoot. Simon chose the impressive Suilven, a remote mountain in Assynt; Sarah the beautiful and idyllic beach of Balnakiel and Sango; and I chose the unique landscape of Plodda Falls for myself. The brief asked us to create a 1 minute video highlighting our chosen Hidden Gem, and document our experience through the imagery and voiceover. Further to this we shot a range of stills to be used alongside the film as additional content.
