Lets take this back a little.
As many of you are aware I held my first full exhibition of my work specifically my Cornish Surf and Wave photography down in St.Ives for a week long showing. I had a great time and learnt a lot from the experience.
I never realized just how much work it was to put together an exhibition until I was up to my eyes in work and planning. Getting all the images together, planning the space, finalising prints, promoting, advertising, press realeases, etc…
Looking back I am really happy with how the whole exhibition went. It was a great opportunity to meet and have a chat with people that followed my work online and I would like to thank everyone who made it down.
Another huge thanks goes out to my print lab and specifically James down at www.sixprint.co.uk who tailored all my prints, frames canvasses to exactly how I wanted as well as running more prints through as things sold. If your a photog in Cornwall be sure to check them out they are by far the best around!
I’ll keep this short but a big thanks to all my family, girlfriend and friends who helped push me and bring this whole thing together. Also everyone who helped promote the event, Ed at Magicseaweed, Greg at Wavelength, Cornwal today…
If you didn’t manage to make it down to the exhibition here’s a little taster produced by my good friend Jamie Spencer check out his work here
Cornish Wave and Surf Photography Exhibition – By Callum Morse of SALTSHOTS
30th May – June 5th
The Salthouse Gallery
“Wavescapes is a photographic exhibition exploring the vibrant and dramatic waves that explode around the Cornish coastline. Growing up in Cornwall, Photographer Callum Morse found himself magnetised to the ocean from an early age through surfing. After laying down his surfboard in exchange for a camera, Callum has started to capture unique perspectives of waves from within the Cornish sea.”
After 4 dedicated years of shooting Cornwall’s waves, surf and coastline I have finally come to a point where I feel I want to exhibit my imagery. I absolutely love shooting photographs in the sea and although often the element and conditions are against you, it makes those rare glimpses of magic all the more worthwhile.
A few of you may have noticed that I haven’t been doing the daily surf report for the North coast for the last 6 weeks. I have actually been in Sri Lanka trying to escape the deep dark Cornish winter. It would seem like there has actually been some great waves along our coast this winter which I was quite gutted to miss out on.
Anyway, the surf report is now back in full swing. I will be doing my best to update daily giving you the advantage to score some extra sessions. Please do head over the Saltshots facebook page and give it a like. I post the link to the page there so its your first chance to get your eyes on the surf report.
I have been doing the surf report for Godrevy and Gwithian for over 14 months now. Although days were missed here and there I have done the report as often and consistently as I could over the year of 2012.
Looking back over the images for the surf report’s for 2012 we actually had a fairly good year of waves. Even more surprising was the amount of days with waves and sunshine, even through the darker months.
I had the idea of putting up a small gallery of the surf reports, one image of each month. A calendar representing the waves we had over 2012 month by month at Godrevy and Gwithian.
I am almost two weeks into my Sri Lanka trip so I thought I would post a couple images. The waves have been real fun just waiting for a decent swell to swing our way. Plenty of snorkeling and tuc-tucs going on, a few evening beers, lemon gin and plenty of curry.
