nikonPress Release:

Nikon UK has teamed up with motorbike fanatic Charley Boorman and his team to capture their latest epic journey on camera, which saw them travel the 20,473 miles from Wicklow in Ireland to Sydney, Australia by any means possible.

Following on from the highly successful ‘Long Way Down’ BBC series that saw Charley and Ewan McGregor travel to Africa by motorbike, Charley’s latest incredible adventure, By Any Means, takes the team across 25 countries on 110 different modes of transport.

Accompanied only by director and expedition leader Russ Malkin and cameraman, Mungo, Charley and the team faced their toughest challenge as they traversed through extreme environments and contrasting cultures.

Whilst filming footage for the television series, the team also captured the journey through from their own perspective using a selection of Nikon equipment including the Nikon D300 and COOLPIX cameras for the more compromising sectors of the trip.

As a novice photographer Charley Boorman quickly developed his photographic skills: “The COOLPIX cameras were perfect for the ad-hoc photography we were doing mainly because they were easy to carry around and the results were great. However, much to my surprise I got to grips quicker with the D300 than expected and the images we’ve got are outstanding – we can really relive each part of the trip every time we see them,” says Charley.

Jeremy Gilbert, Nikon UK’s Group Marketing Manager, adds: “We’re really pleased to be involved in such an exciting project and are delighted with the quality of the images the team has bought back, especially given the tough conditions both the team and the cameras had to endure.
