"With Alex's passion for and knowledge of the outdoors, combined with being a talented copywriter, I knew would make him a perfect match for my recent project – to create SEO-optimized hiking guides for the UK market. And he's not disappointed: His copy is as much practical and factual as it is insightful and inspiring, not an easy balance to strike! He has also been a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to more project work with him soon!"
Magdalena Schoerner - Managing Editor, komoot
"Alex has brought a wealth of experience as editor of the London Mountaineer and has revitalised our quarterly publication. We are proud to have Alex as an active member of the committee that runs the largest regional mountaineering club in the UK."
Zaheer Durrani - President of the London Mountaineering Club
I am Alex. I create high-quality adventure content for use in print and on the web.
I am passionate about sharing my love for the outdoors and enjoy working with partners who share the same goal: to enable others to adventure, explore, have fun and return safely. I believe high-quality content should inspire, educate and enable in such a way. Take a look at my portfolio to see examples of my work.
The mountains are my main passion. Based in Bristol, I regularly travel to the mountainous regions of the UK and beyond. I am a competent mountaineer, keen skyrunner, avid hillwalker and aspiring alpinist. Born in Cumbria, I call the fells of the Lake District home, though I am at least equally happy in North Wales, the Highlands and the Alps.
Writing for print
Writing about the outdoors is what I do best, producing high-quality features. My extensive knowledge base and research skills allow me to adapt my style to suit a range of purposes and audiences depending on need.
Great content is useless unless it has an audience. I am experienced in creating written copy that is inspiring and motivational, yet also optimised so that audiences can discover it easily on search engines, having worked on projects with komoot and advnture.com.
I am an accomplished print designer with experience of creating magazine-style journals. My style is clean, crisp and professional, allowing the photography and copy to do the talking, as it should do.
I am a proficient editor of short films that promote a love of the outdoors. I have created and edited many films for my own YouTube channel Alex Rambles.
Below is a sample of some of my most recent work.
