A beautiful day photographing a wedding in Exeter, Devon.

Reading Time: 1

The weather could not have been more delightful. If the wedding had been on either side of the Saturday it would have been snow or rain. As a second photographer, my role was to assist in capturing the wedding and to capture the big parts of the day at a different angle to the main photographer.

Here are some of my photos from Lee and Sophie’s wedding at Rockbeare Manor in Exeter. See my Facebook Album for more pictures from their lovely wedding day.

New photo from Berry Head in Brixham

Reading Time: 1

I’ve just added a new picture for sale, from a lovely coastal walk yesterday afternoon, around Berry Head in Brixham.

It was a lovely warm, still, sunny afternoon, very unexpected for January, but more so because there was a yellow weather warning for snow the following day. I was certainly not expecting it to be so pleasant up there.

Berry Head in Brixham, Devon on a lovely sunny afternoon.

Berry Head is at the southern tip of Torbay and it commands extensive views of the western coastal approaches to the English Channel and of the Torbay harbourage.

Berry Head Lighthouse is an active lighthouse, located at the end of Berry Head near Brixham in Devon. It was originally built in 1906, and was then automated and converted to run on acetylene in 1921, and was modernised in 1994. Since then it has run on mains electricity.

Berry Head Fort was a heavily defended garrisoned fort built around a half moon coastal battery constructed on the main promontory of Berry Head at the turn of the 19th century. This was in response to the repeated threats of an invasion by the French under Napoleon Bonaparte.

While you’re exploring the area I recommend stopping off at the guard house cafe which is located in the area near the lighthouse.

Latest portrait session in Torquay

Reading Time: 1

My daughter asked if I could take some photos for her social media. We first headed to Teignmouth and then Torquay, both lovely places for this type of work.

My daughter doesn’t like her photo being taken but she really helped interact with pose suggestions and she knew what she wanted.

The only pity was that she wanted to have her hand cover her mouth in most shots. It’s a snapchat thing 🙂

Here is a sample. If you fancy having your portrait taken in and around Torbay then please visit my photography page.

Torbay is such a lovely place to live

Reading Time: 1 It’s been high tide at sunrise all week which makes it difficult to find a location with any foreground interest.

This morning I headed over to Anstey’s Cove in Torquay. This is a nice location because it has some rocks, the sun can glow nicely on the rocks and there are a few compositions. The sun remained firmly behind a thin band of cloud so no golden sun on the rocks this morning, but it sure did look and feel peaceful.

Have a great weekend everyone!

An epic sunrise in Paignton this morning…

Reading Time: 1 The colours were exploding, the waves were crashing and the coffee was smashing 😀☕️😀

As soon as I woke up I could see that the colours were likely to explode in the sky. I grabbed a quick flask of coffee and headed down to Paignton Pier as quickly as possible. On arrival I was greeted with high waves, surfers and a few other photographers.

I’ve never had so many keeper shots in one session but out of them all, this one really stood out the most.
