Growing Up Outdoors

Post Type

I recently collaborated with Reima in their quest to get more kids active.


They had supplied me with a lovely one minute video and it gave me an idea! After a quick camera upgrade and a few trips here and there – I’m proud to have produced the following video…



We were more active than our kids and our parents were more active than us. If we don’t pull together and do something about this, the problem isn’t going away.


Getting outdoors and active really is a wonderful thing. The fresh air doesn’t just clear your head, the places you visit give your children life long experiences.


Let’s keep ourselves and our children active and start changing the trend today. Thanks for watching and please consider sharing this video across your social channels.
