Over to you Clint (foreword by Joanne Carter)…




‘As is my tendency while shooting landscape or street images I tend to play the observer and shoot from a safe distance. But an amazing shot Andy Royston did recently challenged me to get involved in the scene I’m shooting. So I took that to the beach with me this week.

While I captured a lot of lovely scenics and panoramas and some incredible James Clarke cloudys, the most fun was looking at the beach as a sandpiper might, eye-to-eye with the surf.

Kneeling into the oncoming waves I immediately panicked with a “what was I thinking moment” and pulled my tripod and unprotected iPhone up and away from the surf. That’s when I heard my wife laughing onshore…so I knew I had to get the shot. Back down I went, waited through a few cycles of waves to roll in front of me to gauge distance and splash, then snap, snap, reeled off a slew of shots using three different apps (Hipstamatic, 645Pro, and the onboard camera).

I checked out the camera roll as I waded onshore and knew I had a few keepers. As a lifelong art director I’m so accustomed to organizing or composing a scene for a shot. But being IN the scene itself forces you to confront a new frame of reference, and the perspective it unfolds is amazing’.
