Simon J Hare is poacher turned game keeper: A former publishing executive who believed too passionately in the value of great writing and inspirational photography, to spend the rest of his life worrying about the bottom line.Goodbye board room, hello world

Simon's work to date covers his travels in the UK, Europe, Mexico, The South Pacific, Australia and South East Asia. He writes for print and online, is adept at uploading content and scarily geeky when it comes to search engine optimisation. After all, what use is great content if no one can find it?

Simon writes features, short articles and news, examples of which can be found on the panel to the right. Photographs can be supplied as high resolution or RAW files for print, or low resolution files for online use.

His words and pictures have appeared both in mainstream media, specialist magazines and travel media, including, Country Life,, Lonely Planet Magazine, Australia & New Zealand Magazine,, Horse Magazine, and Southeast Asia Globe Magazine.

Simon has also won awards for his photography including second place in the 2012 World Footprints Media Travel Photography awards.
