4am



I finally managed to get up to Manchester to visit a friend and shoot some personal work we had been talking about for a year but had never gotten round to doing. That was until I got sick of looking at his instagram feed, finally enough was enough so off I went to see Toby and his crew for some early morning hill climbs.

A 4am start was all part of the process, we wanted the soft morning light as the sun rose over the dales…that and most of the guys were off that afternoon to race in a 50km Time Trial race!

We shot on a section of road that had flats, curves and a hill ratio that that would give most people a hernia. Before I realised it I’d made the guys ride 8 miles, haha…easy for me to say when I was shooting out of the back of a warm vehicle and they were exposed to the elements.

Thanks to the Manchester Wheelers for being awesome and giving up their time. If you’re around the Manchester area then look them up, a friendly yet competitive group of men and woman  – www.manchesterwheelers.co.uk
