GRAB A COFFEE (OR FIVE) WITH PHOTOGRAPHER DANI KM
Dani KM tends to point her lens at, and for, some of modern culture’s biggest names. Scroll through her Instagram, and it’ll throw up bright and bold shoots with brands like Nike ACG, celebs such as Post Malone, and magazines including THE FACE. Little wonder, then, that the 27-year-old London native busily bounces around the capital on a daily basis, mostly on her bike.
“I see Bromptons all the time, and I’ve always wondered if they feel weird to ride,” she tells us, shortly after returning from a camping trip to the Peak District with her new Brompton x Bear Grylls bike.
Let me tell you – they ride pretty great!”
Dani and her Brompton BG weren’t alone on their rail and ride camp-out trip into one of the UK’s favourite national parks. Joining the outdoor photography specialist was a long-time pal and pro climber, Eugenie Lee.
Both decided that heading back to where they worked on their first climbing project together would be an ideal adventure and proving ground for their inaugural BG trip. Even more so with Eugenie’s cat, Yakult, on hand to pass the final verdict.
“What a relief. The BG also fitted perfectly inside my tent, meaning I didn’t need to find somewhere on the campsite to lock it up. What’s more, there was no need for me to take a backpack on the trip – I packed everything I needed into the bike’s bags.”
