Water-sports Photography

How it all started

I have always loved being out on the open water and being a wildlife photographer the two work well together.

I started my 'water career' on the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, where I canoed and kayaked amongst hippos, crocodiles and elephants to white water rafting down the gorges of the Zambezi river.

My daughter was introduced to sailing by a friend of hers one summer.  She instantly fell in love with the joys of being on the water sailing, kayaking and SUP boarding.

 

We joined a sailing club not too far from us and soon became part of the Watersports club community. 

  I soon became hooked on taking photographs of  sailors, paddlers, and water-skiers in action. I then became a member of the sailing committee, as well as becoming the club’s photographer to assist them in club promotion and event coverage. I now cannot get enough of capturing the all-important action shots. 

The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) has a monthly Inbrief newsletter that goes out to all its subscribers

and three of my images have won the 'Photo Of The Month' which was a great way to promote our sailing club.

 

In order to get some of the action shots out on the water, I work with David Coulson from Cascade Watersports who assists me in getting into the correct position for water based shots. 

How will the session work 

Individual and commercial shoots

A session will be tailor made around you, your requirements, club resources and facilities available.

I will work in conjunction with David Coulson from Cascade Water sports who will assist me in getting into the correct position on the water to capture those all-important shots

You have a choice of angles; land based, water or both.  If water based, then you would need to provide a safety boat through your club that we can use, if this is not available, please let me know and we can discuss an alternative.

A session length will vary to your needs; however, a standard session would be 2-3 hours, you can book a half/ full day or several days for functions and events coverage. We will require 1 hour to meet, setup and pack away club equipment after the shoot.

 

No additional transport charges within 30 miles of Milton Keynes, thereafter a charge will be applied.

  • We will have a telephone/zoom conversation to discuss your requirements as well as ours.

  • Meet on the day of your photoshoot at your club to familiarise ourselves, confirm your requirements, health and safety of club and equipment to be used etc. 

  • I will then take the photographs

  • After the shoot, I will prepare the images for you to view approximately a week later via a password protected 'client area' on my website.

  • Your chosen session hours.

  • A free 10" x 7.5" photo print of your choice
