Hello. I’m Rob, a photographer, designer & writer from England. Two years ago I strapped all I owned to a bike, left my home in London & put the UK film industry behind me to begin the four year challenge of cycling solo & un-supported around the world. Across three continents, forty countries & countless landscapes. Discovering & creating stories through film, word & photography.
