LONG WAY ROUND is the most iconic documentary series I ever shot. The show captured an epic motorbike journey around the world from London to New York with actors Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman.

I got hired as a director/cameraman and followed Ewan and Charley on a third motorbike. My ability to work on my own was crucial for this 4 month assignment.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the praise. It’s always very motivating to hear that LWR & LWD struck a cord with so many people. It was also an eye opening experience for myself to capture such epic adventures. Have you seen http://www.RacingGreenEndurance.com? A record breaking electric car journey from Alaska to Argentina – a world first in 2010 and another road movie I enjoyed a lot.
