Photography in the outdoors
Outdoor photographer Joe Hayes shares his passion for taking photos outdoors. He gives us his top 3 tips, explaining how he gets the perfect picture and how the outdoors has inspired his creativity.
Spring is suddenly upon us, and we can look forward to the summer ahead, with this atmospheric photo of Burnham-On-Sea Low lighthouse, Somerset, taken by Joe Hayes
Joe says "I started photography in November 2016 when a friend showed me the grid lines on an iPhone and since then I have been obsessed! Photography has given me the opportunity to share with the world my adventures around the south coast. It has opened my eyes to parts of the world (even my own county) which I did not know existed. For me, photography is about getting out there and doing what makes you happy, the actual photo is just a bonus extra!"
"This shot was taken at Burnham-On-Sea Low Lighthouse. A friend of mine had seen the location whilst searching for new spots in England, so we headed out for sunset to capture some content. This shot was taken on 10th March at 6pm, when the sun was starting to set. The low sun created interesting shadows and texture on the sand, in the foreground of the shot”
