Aside from 2Commute I also write for various other magazines and websites on a freelance basis…
I’d just like to state that I am no longer involved with Scootering Magazine or its website in any way, shape or form. Any articles appearing in the magazine (or website) now or in the future were written before we parted company in December 2015.
Although the magazine has been a part of my life since issue one in 1985 (and I’m still friends with the editor and scooter riding staff/freelancers) new contracts have forced me to part company with the mag. In the summer of 2015 Mortons Media decided to implement new freelance contracts. Signing the contracts would have meant that anything I wrote, or any photos I took as part of a feature would be owned by them… forever. Meaning they could use and sell my work forever, for free. This was unfair, unreasonable and as a freelancer meant I’d not be able to use anything elsewhere, now or in the future – not even on social media.
2016, new things are on the horizon. A fresh start, new beginnings. Watch this space…
