Founded by former UK Special Forces and fast-becoming one of the big players in the outdoor scene, Thrudark produce high quality gear, rigorously tested and developed on operations around the world. I joined friend and fellow creative Niklas Söderlund on a five day video shoot as he filmed ‘The Brave‘, with the goal of working in the background to shoot a range of photographs to support and reinforce the films key moments. Kicking things off with a brilliant day high above Glen Coe on Aonach Eagach, we were dealt a wide array of different conditions – the only constant was heavy wind. One of the UK’s most exposed and dramatic ridges, it always provides great scenarios for content, and this day was no different. The harsh weather only worsened throughout the next few days of shooting, but luckily Scotland and Thrudark gear thrive in the most brutal of weather and we had an incredible productive shoot in the Quiraing on The Isle of Skye. For our final day we headed up into the mountains from Glenbrittle, into the cloud that often crowns Skye’s Black Cuillin which made for some difficult conditions, but not too challenging to set up and shoot an abseil from the summit of Sgurr Alasdair.
