In October I headed south to Düsseldorf to meet up with Adrian and continue with Shimano’s “Cycling in the City” series that I have been working on with Fusion Media Services.
It was a first for me to visit Düsseldorf and made even better by having local Adrian show myself and Chris from Fusion around. Despite the reputation of Germany being very car centric, it was really refreshing to explore Düsseldorf by bike allowing us to avoid the traffic thanks to the abundance of quality cycling infrastructure.

Intrepid Camera recently approached me looking to test their newly developed 4x5 film holders, living in a cold climate they were looking to test durability when the mercury hit the extreme negative numbers. Winter came early to Southern Sweden which meant by December, many of the small rivers and streams had begun to freeze over. This creates a unique phenomena were by the power of the water is suppressed due to extreme cold yet remains a powerful force that despite dense ice sheets, continues to flow. While walking along the upper reaches of Nissån, I discovered a pressure point where the water had thinned the ice enough that the trapped air had burst through.
This initial image has formed the foundation for a new personal project which I will share more from in the near future.
During 2024 I will be sharing more BTS and general happenings on social media, if you have instagram feel free to give me a follow @chrisLanaway / https://www.instagram.com/chrislanaway/?hl=en
I recently visited Ellös on Swedens West Coast for a family holiday, a week where the weather was largely dominated by rain. We were graced with one break in the weather allowing the west coast to really showcase it’s unique light during late autumn. I begun thinking about the vast amount of work I produce outside of commercial projects, as such I am re-igniting my blog as a platform to share updates, unseen work and some behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more to come!
