We are delighted to welcome Life In Transit Photography to Oomph! On Demand, with owner, Steven Harrowing, providing stunning virtual tours using his drone and Go-Pro. With extensive experience in videography, we are excited to see the new content on our digital platform, including an absolutely incredible tour of Scotland’s beaches and waterfalls, and a series that tours the Isle of Skye. Let’s find out a bit more about Steven…
I am a Military Veteran having served six and a half years in Her Majesty’s Royal Marines. During that time I served on two tours of Afghanistan, two cold weather warfare and survival courses in arctic Norway, jungle warfare and survival training in the depths of Brunei and a stint onboard various naval vessels HMS Bulwark, RFA Lymesbay and RFA Mountsbay.
On leaving the Royal Marines I took my experience to the private sector, conducting anti-piracy protection for commercial vessels in high-risk waters. That was an incredibly interesting job that took me to some seldom seen places all over the world such as Oman, Kuwait, Yemen, Sri Lanka and as far as Singapore protecting anything from brand new vehicles, oil and grain and a brand-new drilling ship.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping and the outdoors in general. Some of my favourite places in the UK are the Scottish Highlands, The Lake District and the Snowdonia region of Wales.
After being made redundant from my chemical manufacturing job earlier this year, and after going through a period of debilitating depression and anxiety, I decided I wanted to do something that I was fully passionate about again. Something that I had not felt since being a Commando. So, I decided to turn my hobby of photography and video editing into a career.
My videos for my YouTube channel are what got me noticed and now I am happy to say that I am partnered with Oomph! to bring regular entertaining content that I hope the older adults benefiting from the platform can enjoy.
And did I mention, I am also a drone pilot? The drone gives me easy access to more complicated and unique perspectives that you just wouldn’t be able to achieve without a plane, crane or helicopter. I know you’re going to love the footage!
Due to my personal experience with mental health and having a physically disabled father, I can understand why wellness is such an important issue, and it is for that reason why I decided to work with Oomph!. I hope to bring interesting and stimulating videos from unique locations that older adults will enjoy watching and look forward too.
Our journey together starts with a tour of Scotland, but who knows where it will end…
