My name is Paul Atkinson, I live in North East England, and one of my passions is going out into the wild on my own, away from civilisation, and in all kinds of weather. it sounds like I'm a bit of a loner, and that's true sometimes, but I really enjoy working and collaborating with other people in the world of digital media.
For over 20 years, I made my living making professional video and audio for TV, radio and the Internet, but today, partly because of the changing landscape in digital media, I work with a select number of clients, providing mostly editing and post-production services, as well as the odd shoot.
One of the things I enjoy the most, is being in nature, finding unique and interesting places, interesting landscapes, and documenting the journey getting there with video. So these days I leave most of my kit in the office and head into the hills armed with a GoPro, an Insta 360° and a Mavic, just enough to capture the experience in great quality to share with anyone who might be interested.
For me, getting out into the countryside is excellent therapy, and I thouroughly recommend it as a way of de-stressing and getting physical exercise.
Your comments and suggestions are always welcome, and I enjoy hearing from people who have taken something away from watching my videos and followed in my tracks, after all following in someone else's tracks is all I've done myself.
Take care out there and enjoy this wonderful part of the country, and please get in contact if you need a guide for the day.
