I’m Callum, often known as Sketch!
Currently the Head of Climbing at West 1 located in central London, and up-and-coming Aerial Photographer specialising in Property and Adventure Sports.
A lifelong passion for the outdoors has seen me explore awe inspiring locations from the glaciers of Chamonix, to the limestone cliffs of Kalymnos. Pairing my drone skills with those I picked up during my Animation degree I hope to bring captivating imagery and storytelling to your screens, hopefully inspiring you to dust off your boots and get out there!
My current goals are to attend (as a spectator) climbing’s Olympic debut in Tokyo 2021, and explore the Italian countryside in search of quality new climbs and imagery opportunities hidden amongst historic hillside towns.
In 2012 I graduated from the University of Portsmouth with a BSc in Computer Animation. The experiences and opportunities gained throughout my time as an undergrad were invaluable to me. The fact that the Mountaineering Club oldies get together every Christmas is testament to the strong bonds we forged whilst at Portsmouth!
I have several years of climbing industry experience under my belt at all levels from Coach to Centre Manager, and extensive outdoor retail experience having worked for 4 years at (now defunct) Peglers in the castle town of Arundel, W-Sussex.
