British Outdoor Wear: A Photographic Celebration of a Great Heritage - Photography by Tommy Martin for Grey Fox

Grey Fox Feature Shoot

Last month I was contacted by David Evans, a mens fashion blogger of Grey Fox fame, to see if I was interested in a shooting a feature for Grey Fox on British heritage outdoor wear in the Lake District. Obviously, I did. The title of the feature is basically my job description…

We spent a fantastic, very laid-back, day shooting in and around the Duddon Valley, a lesser known spot, tucked away in the South West corner of the Lake District. Some days, the light just kind of follows you around and everywhere you look there are great shots just queuing up waiting to be taken. David turned out to be a thoroughly nice bloke and very easy to work with as a model. He had also put together a great range of different looks from range of British suppliers and very clear plan of what he needed. He also brought along Harry The Blog Dog, who is quite evidently a star in own right. With the light, scenery and models lining up so easily we even managed to stop at a pub for lunch. Days at work don’t get a any better than this.

You can see the feature on Grey Fox now, and some of my personal favourites from the shoot below…

Huge thanks to Grey Fox for putting this together, and to all of the suppliers that supported the feature (listed at the bottom of the page).
