Meet The Stars Of SS24: Tom

As we launch our new season range, we look back as we worked with some truly remarkable people. All outdoor enthusiasts, yet from different backgrounds, our Spring Summer 24 shoot was an incredibly fun and enjoyable experience due to these people, so we thought we'd share a bit more about our SS24 Stars of The Shoot.

Meet Tom

Meet Tom, a dedicated nurse whose passion for living life to the fullest extends far beyond the walls of the hospital. For the past eight years, Tom has devoted himself to caring for others, but amidst the challenges of his profession, he remains steadfast in his belief that life's greatest joys are found in embracing the present moment and immersing oneself in the wonders of the world.

Tom's ethos of seizing the moment is rooted in a profound appreciation for the beauty of life's experiences. As he reflects on his journey, he emphasizes the importance of indulging in travel, hiking, and all manner of adventures before the passage of time dims their allure. For Tom, the essence of living lies not in waiting for the perfect moment, but in embracing each opportunity with open arms. Amidst the tumult of the Covid-19 pandemic, Tom found solace in the healing powers of nature. Venturing outdoors with a friend who had relocated to Manchester during the crisis, he discovered the therapeutic benefits of forest bathing and mindfulness. Each excursion became a sanctuary of tranquillity, providing respite from the demands of his profession and fostering meaningful connections with his companion.

In the midst of his travels and adventures, Tom has come to appreciate the inherent beauty of the world that surrounds him. From the rolling hills of Scotland to the rugged coastlines of Wales and Ireland, he has found solace in the simple act of pausing, taking a breath, and immersing himself in the calming embrace of nature. In doing so, he has learned to cherish the moments of stillness and serenity that abound in even the most ordinary of landscapes.

As an avid traveller, Tom has made it his mission to explore the diverse cultures and landscapes of Europe, ticking off countries from his ever-expanding list of destinations. Yet, amidst his quest for far-flung adventures, he has come to realize that true beauty lies not only in the distant horizon but in the treasures that lie closer to home. Whether traversing the rugged trails of his native England or venturing into the untamed wilderness of Scotland, Tom has discovered that the world is as vast or as intimate as one's perspective allows.
