15 Minute Sunset Shoot

Its been far too long since I have written anything on the blog. Its been down to a multitude of things but the main one is down to working abroad. Since being home I have been trying to keep my camera on me more, like I used to.

After a long days work on the beach I headed out to shoot some video of good friend Josh Daniel in some fun little waves up at Godrevy. The sun began to fade and the lighting went from very poor to absolutely epic. 

I switched from shooting video to stills and below are a few favourite images. All shot within 15 minutes, 21:26 – 21:41pm.

Summer Slip and Slide

Back in July myself and a group of friends got together on an sunny evening and put together our own slip and slide. Its been talked about for a while and having a perfect steep sandy slope down to the ocean at our local beach, it was rude not to.

Here’s the video clip and few images that epic evening.

Thinking in Textures

Since returning home for the summer here in Cornwall, I have been trying to get out and shoot as much as possible between coaching at the surf school. Whether its sunny and offshore or gloomy and small I have tried to push myself into getting as much water time as possible.

I’ve started to enjoy trying to capture the way different conditions create such varying textures on the water and waves. From smooth oily glass like waves to wind curdled chop. I’ve been putting together a little collection which I will post when completed but thought in the meantime I would share some images from the past few months that have been sitting on the hard drive.

Sunrise Slide

Another beautiful morning in the bay with sunshine, light winds and waves. I hooked up with a few friends and some of the boys from Slide65 surfboards for a little longboard shoot. Although the waves weren’t standing up perfectly at Gwithian there were still some fun ones coming through and the boys were tearing it up on the longboards. Can’t beat a early morning surf to set you up for the day before work.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the session, let me know what you think and feel free to share!

Sunset Paddle

Godrevy and the surrounding bay basically turned into a lake last week for a few days. These little flat spells normally get to people but with the sunshine and light winds there was plenty of opportunities to enjoy the ocean. We decided to hop on the SUP’s and head out for a paddle around the back of Godrevy Lighthouse and the island to enjoy the sunset. You gotta love summer.

Here’s a few frames from the evening. If your interested in giving this a go yourself hit us up at Gwithian Academy of Surfing – We offer both SUP hire and lessons.
