No 422 – Alex Roddie Pt2


This is part two of my conversation with Alex Roddie as we explore his writing and backpacking interests more.

In this episode we touch on walking in the Alps, his conscious decision to carry lighter loads to travel easier and some of his equipment choices and why.

We also disar1cuss how he takes his night time images which have appeared in recent publications.

 

It is an honest chat about how his writing has evolved, his approach to photography and building these skills. His evolution from mountaineer to a backpacker in a few short years!
