What brought you to Cornwall – if you don’t live here?

I had wonderful memories of holidays in Cornwall as children, and since starting my own family we’ve been drawn back. We took our son when he was only 7 weeks old (which looking back now seems crazy!)


Where is your favourite place in Cornwall?

I have a huge soft spot for St Ives – it’s always buzzing and has such a lovely atmosphere. In terms of attractions, we visited The Lost Gardens of Heligan for the first time earlier this year and I thought it was spectacular. So much to see, we could have stayed for far longer, if only they hadn’t been about to shut!


What camera/mobile phone do you usually use for your photos?

Most of my photos are from my Canon 700D, occasionally I use the odd one from my mobile phone, a Nexus 5X.

If you could take a photograph of anyone or anywhere in the world, where or who would you choose?

I’d love to visit Angkor Wat in Cambodia. I’ve never been to Asia at all, and the ancient temples look absolutely stunning, I’d love the chance to photograph them.


Describe Cornwall in a maximum of three words:

Spectacular, relaxed, friendly


Pasty or Cream tea?

Cream tea all the way!

If you could be anywhere in the World right now doing anything, what would you be doing and where?

Aside from Cornwall, my favourite place in the world is Tuscany – I can see myself right now, with my family, sat outside at a table with a nice glass of Aperol Spritz, looking over the vineyards as the sun sets.


Please tell me a random fact about you?

I have a huge love of opera and trained as an opera singer. I’ve sung leading roles in lots of productions but it’s something that’s fallen by the wayside since I’ve had my son. I’d love to pick it back up properly in a few years time.


Thank you Katy, I love your photos and oh wow to the opera singer part! You should show us all a bit of that on YouTube. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is also one of my favourite places and not far from where I live.


If you would like to take part in Photos of Cornwall, then drop me an email at and I will tell you what you need to do. You don’t need to be a blogger or a professional photographer, it is open to anyone who wants to share their love of Cornwall.

    Oh gosh opera, that’s amazing! I’ve never been to St Ives, I’ll have to make a trip there some time, I’ve heard great things about it.

      I know, I would love to be able to sing. I try now much to the boys’ disgust ;)

    Spectacular friendly and relaxed are three words that I too would use to describe fabulous Cornwall. I hate to admit that I don’t think I’ve ever had a Cornish cream tea. Made up for it with pasty consumption though! xx

      I’m surprised you haven’t tried one during one of your visits, I do prefer a pasty really but a good cream tea is pretty amazing to have :)

    Great idea for a series and I love the random fact question as will always draw out good stuff. My brother is an opera singer by a weird coincidence

    • 21 January 2017 / 9:04 pm

      Thanks Kate and that’s my favourite question. It would be amazing to be able to sing, I still do all the time, just it is more enjoyable for me than other people ;)

    Wow, a former opera singer. That is really interesting. Love Katy’s photos too

      I know I’m so impressed with her photos and her skills, I now need to hear a bit of her singing.
