Kingsley Scott – Photos of Cornwall

 

I’ve decided to start a new section on my blog for Photos of Cornwall, where I will feature local photography taken sometimes by me, sometimes by professionals, and also my favourites of any that my readers would like to submit to me!

 

For the first one of this ‘series’ I contacted the amazingly talented Kingsley Scott, whose photos I’m always mesmerized by on Twitter, and who gives me some serious skill envy! Below you’ll find some of Kingsley’s work, and a little Q and A session, just because I’m nosey!

Name : 

Kingsley Scott

 

Occupation:

Professional Photographer

 

Are you Cornish? If not where are you originally from and what brought you to the best county?:

No I am not Cornish, by birth, but my heart has always been Cornish. I am originally from a little village near Doncaster, South Yorkshire but I have been visiting/holidaying here since the mid 1980’s and thanks to my wonderful fiancée we were able to move to live here nearly 3 years ago. Personally I have always loved Cornwall with its ever-changing coast line and beaches and the great laid back lifestyle.

 

What is your favourite place in Cornwall?:

As a whole area I would have to say the Far West of Cornwall, there are some many wonderful places to from Porthcurno to Zennor to Marizion – they are all fantastic and but for one specific place it would have to be St Nectans Glen, which is where a few years ago, at the bottom of the water, we got engaged.

 

Which do you prefer to capture through your lens, people or landscapes?:

I would have to say landscapes are my passion and what I love photographing the most, mainly due to the fact I love being outside and visiting all the different coves and beaches that this wonderful county has to offer.

If you could take anyone in the World’s photo, who would you choose and why?:

Probably Sir Tim Berners-Lee, (inventor of the World Wide Web) I would like to ask him what he thinks of the internet today, how its grown and changed society of today and how he hopes it will benefit us in the future.

 

What has been your favourite photograph that you have taken so far, and why?:

I love colour in my images and an interesting colourful sky is almost a must for me, so for this I will have to choose an image I took last year at Treyarnon Bay, near Padstow. It was the sunset on the summer solstice and due to lack of light on the sunrise, I headed out for sunset and I was not disappointed. It was a lovely warm summers evening and even the sea breeze was warm, loads of people were on the beach with bbq’s and generally milling about waiting for the sun to go down. The sky then lit up and produced some of the most wonderful colours I had seen for a long time. I like the image because it reminds me about this most wonderful evening, being there in that moment in time.

What would be your top photography tip for amateurs?:

I suppose the easiest tip by far, is for people to stay after the sun has set, I see so many people who leave as soon as the sun has gone, give it some time, the best colours and light usually come after the sun has gone below the horizon.

 

Tell me a random fact about yourself:

I love cooking.

    Ahh awesome! I absolutely love Kingsley’s photography – I follow him on Twitter and Instagram and often find myself getting carried away ‘liking’, ‘favouriting’ and ‘retweeting’ his gorgeous photos. It’s great to find out a little bit more about the man behind the camera! x
