Walk On The Wild Side – Blackpool Video Walkaround

Welcome to A Walk on the Wild Side.

Stephen Cheatley an award winning professional photographer specializing in travel, weather & astronomy.

He posts walk around video content mainly in my hometown of Blackpool, which looks at different sides of the town from rundown streets to the famous promenade, as well as capturing the various characters along the way.

Stephen will include some photography if it is convenient. Sometimes he may venture further than Blackpool to vlog in some far flung place.

His award winning picture!

Stephen Cheatley: “Captured crashing down over my hometown of Blackpool in the summer of 2015 titled ‘Electric Blackpool’.
The picture went viral at the time, and appeared in most major newspapers. Lightning storms, particularly with the intensity of the one I captured are extremely rare in this part of the world, with maybe just one or two per year if we are lucky. This statistic makes the shot even more remarkable, and it is now firmly a part of history, which I will talk about as long as I live. The image went on to win the RMetS Weather Photographer of the Year award in 2018, a competition which I helped judge the following year.”
