Saturday 18th August saw the 'Two of a Kind' Exhibition at the Carnmarth Hotel on the Headland Road.
It was a great day - and thank you to everyone who came down and supported us!
We had loads of interest with a few sales as well as lots of friends who joined us for some sun and beverages.

Toyah and I set up and ready to go!

Relentless Boardmasters 2012!!

Just a few pictures to wet your appetite - have a look at my facebook page for more pictures and come and see me at the Carnmarth Hotel on Saturday for a surf and landscape exhibition...

What a great few days - Newquay had a festival atmosphere from the 8-12th August.
The surf competition began earlier due to the better and bigger waves at the beginning of the week and the weather was amazing. blue sky and very little wind - only a little bit of drizzle on the Sunday.

There were stalls selling great clothes and some real gourmet food!

The amazing skate boarding and bmx competitions saw some real talent doing some moves! I was on the ramp right in the action - I wish I know what all the moves were called!

Fistral Beach saw the Beach Sessions on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. Bands included Reel Big Fish, Xavier Rudd and the Black Seeds. The beer was cold and the crowds were loving it!

On Friday and Saturday the party went to Watergate Bay where Dizzy Rascal and Ed Sheeran played to the crowds along with some great dance acts and DJs.

Really amazing weekend here in Newquay with the Relentless Boardmasters. Beach sessions on Fistral beach along with skating and bmx competitions and of course the surf competition then the Watergate Bay music festival - it was amazing and the weather was pretty good too! I had a press media pass so I got some really great shots. I took over 2000 photos so photos will be up as soon as possible! 

In the meantime have a look at theses photos: Our good friend Katherine had a baby on the 5th July - Little Oliver - he is lovely! The week before Katherine asked me to do a pregnant photo shoot. We chose a gorgeous sunny day down at Little Fistral and got some beautiful colour and black and white shots. Thanks to her, her friend Rosie asked for some similar shots. Rosie came down from Devon on the 8th July with her boyfriend and the pictures are so romantic and beautiful. The idea is to turn it into series of photos following their baby grow up - a lovely record for the family.

Lusty Glaze held a vintage surf board show on the 14th of July.
I went along with a few of my prints and joined our friends Tom and Toyah who have just set up their own surf board sock business. Bagabond socks are made of vintage, recycled material with double lining to ensure they are sturdy and protective. Look for them in Watershed on Newquay high street as well as Revolver. They also have a piece in Surf Girl Magazine  - out now!

All hand made!

We have teamed up to hold an exhibition at the Carnmarth Hotel on the Headland Road in Newquay. It will be all about surfing - landscape and surf photos as well as Bagabond surf socks and surf accessories. Come on down this Saturday (18th August) from 12pm and say hello!

My cave man shot at Perranporth Beach has been really popular and I have sold several at the Beached Lamb Cafe and the Carnmarth Hotel - It's a great shot and I was really lucky that at the right moment this surfer moved into the picture - I wonder who he is?! 

The Carnmarth Hotel has been really supportive of my pictures - having around 6 of them in the bar. The colour star trail shot has also been made into wall paper and covers one wall of one of their rooms. It looks great! 

On the 7th June I was asked by Alistair and Sarah Robertson to be their official wedding photographer. 

They were from Chester and came down to Cornwall to be married at the The Glendorgal Hotel The ceremony was beautiful and although the weather was typical rainy UK, the clouds broke for a short time allowing us to take some lovely shots outside. This wedding is my second and I really enjoy being a part of the special day.

Hello everyone and welcome to my Blog! I moved to Cornwall in 2010 and have set up my own photography business:

The Cornish coastline is an amazing subject to take photos of and the people and culture of Kernow has given the landscapes a real context.

Little Fistral, Newquay, Cornwall

Although I mainly do landscapes, I have done several shoots for estate agents and holiday home companies.
I have also done some weddings and pregnancy shoots - I will backtrack a little and give you an idea what happens in Wilkie's world!
