This was taken for the Fistral Beach Hotel in Newquay and represents how it is a relaxed and surf-friendly hotel, where you can go from your room to the surf. The main light was a reflector with a grid from the front, and the second light was a large softbox to soften the shadows on the model’s back. It was shot in the reception of the hotel.
All at sea
This photo was taken at high tide at Gwithien. I was not the only photographer out on the beach that day, there were lots. I tried to simplify the composition to allow the viewer’s focus to fall on the subject. Taking away any potentially distracting elements from this scene gives the photo a sense of serenity that is synonymous with surfing.
This photo was taken for a client, and is a representation of family, passion, and creativity, three principles that the client embraced as unique selling points. Post-production was quite heavy on this image, nudging towards Instagram filter styles. High contrast, over-saturation and colour bleeds help to give it a unique feel.
