Things are finally coming together! It's only taken a solid 7 months for me to realise the true intent of my final project at university, but I finally feel as though the concept is somewhat set in stone. On the other hand, the photography itself is another story...but I'm hoping I'll be able to share some brand new work very soon.
This week I have been none. stop. shooting! After assembling a variety of materials to work with I took to the Cornish landscape with my trusty buddy Sophie who has been an absolute Saint! She drove me to a wide range of areas to experiment with a few ideas I've had; from Bodmin Moor to Holywell Bay near Newquay. I highly doubt I'd of managed to get around so freely without her and for that I can't thank her enough. Cheers Chuck.
One of the highlights from this week was on Sunday during our visit to Tregardock Beach near Tintagel on the North Coast. Lets set the scene. It's 12.28 in the afternoon, slightly overcast with a sharp chill in the air and the sound of crashing waves in the distance as we approach the beach. Seems like another standard adventure in the land of Cornwall...wrong. Little did we know that the Beast from the East 2.0 was about to unleash another motherload of snow right on top of us, right as I was about to start shooting. Now, usually I'm all for the snow and would embrace it with open arms, but it made it somewhat of a challenge for me to put my ideas to the test and made it practically impossible for Sophie to capture any landscapes without giant snowflakes latching on to her lense.
After taking on what may as well have been a blizzard (No Exaggeration) we miraculously managed to get back to the car. However, we didn't let the weather stop us there and continued on our travels straight down to Kynance Cove to make the most of the opportunity and get a few snaps of the rare view.
