Richard Parks is the former Welsh International and Barbarian flanker, who was recently forced to retire from professional rugby due to a career ending shoulder injury.
In December 2010 Richard will start the unique, multi discipline 737 Challenge. A gripping 7 month expedition to climb the 7 Summits, which are the highest mountain on each of the world's continents, and venture the last 2 degrees to The South Pole and the last degree to The Geographic North Pole. All against a 7 month clock!
The press shoot for the challenge took place at Premier Park Studios and everybody that was involved gave their services for free. Richard was a natural in front of the camera and we got some great shots.
Richard will be joined by Olympic Gold Medalist Steve Williams on some of the challenges
By the time Dan has greeted you with an easy “hello mate”, you are in the company of a friend. He’s effortlessly comfortable with people wherever they come from and whatever they do, and somehow he manages to make the feeling mutual.
This ability to put people at ease creates the feeling of accessibility, comfort and complete honesty that’s captured in all his photography – one of his favourite memories as a photographer is running from a farmer with Carl Cox in a wheat field… With Dan the barriers are instantly down.
Dan Reid images are images with no pretence, no ambiguity but all personality.
