Hi there, I'm Grey O'Dwyer, a photographer, rock climber, and mountaineer from the timeless English Lake District of northwest England. I am also a University Lecturer specializing in International Relations at the University of Reading with a keen focus on cognitive psychology and decision-making in US foreign policy (fun times!). From a very early age I developed an innate fascination with most aspects of the natural world, but with mountains, rock climbing, and hiking in particular. As I grew a little older I began to experiment with taking a point-and-shoot camera with me on my hikes, scrambles, and climbs and my love for outdoor photography was born. Since these formative experiences I have never once looked back and now spend my days photographing the rocks, mountains, and crags of Lakeland and documenting life across the district. The camera gear has gotten a little better since my early years and thankfully a lot more robust. I am also a proud member of the British Mountaineering Council, the Lakeland Climbing Centre in Kendal, and Parthian Climbing in Reading.
