ABOUT CLEMENT HODGKINSON
I am a half French, half British adventure / lifestyle photographer and filmmaker based in the UK & Europe. My UK base is close to North Wales and I’m in the process of establishing myself in Chamonix, France to be closer to the big mountains.
I’ve always enjoyed the process of creating and photography felt like a natural extension of that which has since enabled me to bring home stories from the mountains and inspire others to get outdoors and out of their comfort zones.
My focus is aimed towards projects that touch on aspects of human endurance, expeditions, the environment and sustainability.
Being outdoors and in our wild places from skiing in the alpine, to rock climbing or cold water surfing is what makes me most alive. As a result I train hard to feel good when working in the mountains.
I'm constantly striving to achieve that rare moment of feeling and presence caused by authentic imagery.
In the Autumn of 2016 I bought and built an ordinary panel van into a home on wheels to facilitate my outdoor lifestyle. Ever since part of my year is spent working on the road whilst living out the van.
I’m currently eyeballing some trips that’ll leave me dirt covered, cold and pretty tired. Keep an eye out.
My work has been featured in social media campaigns for Tourism Boards, Brand Ads as well as several editorial pieces.
