Take a scenic tour of north Cornwall
Reader 1 Liz Kessler Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II Location: St Ives, Cornwall
Author Liz has written over 20 books for children and young adults. She has always loved the ocean: when she’s not thinking about her next story idea, she photographs surfers on the beaches of St Ives. Liz used her lightweight Olympus mirrorless system on our shoot, meaning she was able to move about very quickly when details caught her eye. Liz recently dabbled with the Olympus E-M1 Mark II, but believes the best camera is the one you have in your hand. During the day, she was keen to explore fun perspectives at the places we visited.
Reader 2 Lucie Averill Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Location: Near Marazion, Cornwall
Former teacher Lucie has been shooting for over 13 years, and is fascinated by the way the changing seasons, weather and light continually redefine a familiar place. Living in west Cornwall, her images are a response to the landscape around her. Lucie’s interest in photography was sparked at the dawn of the digital photography era when she got her first point-and-shoot, but after buying a DSLR, she taught herself how to work manually. On the shoot, Lucie was particularly drawn to clouds, reflections and patterns, often using long exposures for a painterly approach.
