I played football for a few years in high school, but that’s where my athletic career began and ended. My focus turned more towards music, videography, and photography. After high school, I began shooting and editing music videos for local bands around town. That eventually evolved into photography and through various contacts, I started shooting sports around town ranging from high school all the way up to college and professional MLS and NHL teams.

This Londoner made a name for himself through his impressive finishes at Tough Guy and has been a dominant force in obstacle racing in the United Kingdom. What many people do not know about Appleton is his other passion, photography. He is an award-winning photographer.
