Camping with Style contributors all share a common love of the outdoors, nature, travel and camping, and are all either family or long-time friends. Find out more below.

Shell Robshaw-Bryan Camping with Style

Shell Robshaw-Bryan

“I’m at my happiest when I’m outside, and I’ve never lost my childish curiosity or desire to explore and play in the great outdoors.”

Shell loves all things outdoors and is a nature-loving, comfy-camping kinda girl who strongly believes in the healing power of nature. Most weekends involve a road trip, living under canvas, a good hill walk and getting out on the water in her kayak. Camera round her neck, backpack filled to bursting Shell is never happier than when she’s outside, and she shares her love of the great outdoors and in particular, camping, to inspire people to spend more of their time away from screens and reconnecting with nature.

As well as anything that allows Shell to spend time outdoors, she also loves snowboarding, indoor climbing, travel, yoga, walking, photography, music and animals.

Suse Hammond-Pears

Suse Hammond-Pears

“Time and children are both really precious commodities: both seem like daunting challenges even without adding a camping trip into the mix.”

Suse is thirty-something. She juggles an enormously packed life, holding down full time jobs as a business analyst, parent and wife. She is a published scifi author, is about to start a small business upcycling clothing, is working towards a degree, and still crams an amazing amount of activity into the rest of her time including camping (which is how she met Shell). She lives in Nottingham, UK, with her husband, small daughter and a retired racing greyhound.

Suse will contribute to the site by writing articles about how to prepare for camping on an already packed schedule, and how to cope with going camping with a small child in the group.

Alistair Davitt Camping with Style writer
Alistair Davitt aka Mr CWS or Him Outdoors

“Spending time outdoors is a big deal to me, perhaps even as big a deal as finding out that Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is about to hit the small screen….and that’s saying something!”

Alistair loves the outdoors and is always keen to try new things and go on the next Camping with Style adventure. He loves testing technical gear and often accompanies Shell when she goes walking or camping, dealing with the tedious finer details that include navigation, and remembering to pack the tent pegs and mallet…which come to think of it usually get left behind. Hmmmmm.

Joanne & Matt

Joanne Rowe

“Being outdoors together is where we’re most relaxed and adventurous. We find that stripping back all that we’ve come to know as human beings, makes us realise what it really means to be a human being.”

Joanne and Matt alternate long trips to be with each other in their long-distance relationship. Meeting outside of their home cities, London and Plymouth, means they can forget their day jobs and just be with each other and learn together in the outdoors.

Joanne is a media professional and folk singer-songwriter with an expertise in wildlife and great knowledge of birds and butterflies. Matt is a doctor come musician who loves the sea and learning new things.

Joanne and Matt will contribute to Camping With Style as a team, like so many of their adventures.

“Never let your dog put out your camp neighbours BBQ, it’s generally not appreciated…”

Tiffy is one of Shells sisters, and is a talented signer-songwriter living in the Midlands. She and her boyfriend have two dogs and a boat, and love messing about on the river equally as much as long walks with the doggy-boys. Tiff is also a keen camper who shares Shells philosophy of camping in style, and she contributes to this blog by writing about camping and getting outdoors with dogs.
