About Me I was born in Philadelphia, USA, in 1964, and have lived all over the world including India, Africa, the UK and Australia, where I worked on a cattle station in the Kimberley before starting work as a photographic assistant in 1988. I started working as a freelance photographer in London in 1991, worked in India and South East Asia for two years in 1998/9, then lived in Bristol for three years between 2000 and 2002 completing a Master of Arts. I have been based in Barcelona, Spain since 2003.

+1 on the ShangriLa 3 plus inner net. Shelter weight 680g for one person. Inner weight 790g for the other person. If you use hiking poles, all you have to do is split the stakes- 50g each. If y...
