Tom Hutton, Walking Wales
It took Tom over 20 years to realise that he didn’t look good in a suit and tie, and less than 5 minutes to resign from his day job to concentrate on his writing and photography. He’s since won awards for his pictures, and travelled extensively both in the UK and abroad. He’s equally at home walking, climbing, skiing, or cycling, and his passion for the outdoors is matched only by his love of nature in general. Originally hailing from Bristol, he now lives in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with his partner, Steph, and two dogs, Honey and India.
