Summer in Cornwall

I've now officially relocated to Falmouth, I love living here and decided to make it my home. I was really pleased with my results, achieving a First Class degree in Marine and Natural History Photography. Now the real work begins, making a living out of something I love.... The summer has started with a number of weddings to photograph, which, as always has been a real pleasure, I have also had commissions for commercial photography, which has been really interesting. The diary is beginning to fill up with events for the rest of the year, and I am also hoping to spend some time on my board, catching some waves during our lovely Cornish summer! 

Degree finished... Exhibitions begin!

Well I've officially finished my degree and my final project has been handed in for marking.... Whilst I wait to hear my results I am going to be busy curating our degree show at Falmouth Univeristy which begins on 5th June in the 'photography centre', all are welcome to attend. I am also currently preparing for my own exhibition of my final project entitled 'Mordon', which illustrates the power and beauty of the ocean. This exhibition is being held in No.8 cafe, Launceston from 12th - 21st June, and is part of the Charles Causley Festival. The preview is on Thursday 11th June, from 6pm and again all are welcome to attend. 

Cornwall's Character Landscape Assessment

Every country, county and region around the world has many individual landscape characters, which make themunique and special.

Cornwall Council has developed  ‘Landscape Character Assessments’. This was achieved by identifying forty areas throughout the county, and each assessmentprovides information and advice to help people understand how the landscape has been formed, influenced and changed over time. It also provides a record of the environmental, natural and historic images of Cornwall.

The idea for my final project of my degree in Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University evolved from this report. I have decided to photograph some of these key landscape characters in Cornwall. I just have to decide which ones! I need YOUR help. I would like you to nominate your favourite landscapes throughout Cornwall. It could be coastal cliffs,woodland, moorland, castles, stone bridges, rivers, churches, historic monuments etc. etc. The image below illustrates one of these landscapes that Cornwall is famous for, St Michael's Mount. 

Please reply to this post, email or visit my Facebook page to share your views. There will be a series of exhibitions of my work following the completion of my degree, and I will post details of this nearer the time.

Thanks for your help!
