Bedruthan steps beach is one of my favourite beaches in Cornwall, which is a bold statement to make given that Cornwall has so many lovely beach locations along the North & South coastlines. It was the place that leapt in to my mind when this shoot was first being organised & I was literally praying for nice weather on the day of the shoot – we were very lucky & got a beautifully bright & more importantly; dry day, which allowed the team to work with the models on location without getting soggy.
The title of the shoot really signifies the look & feel that I was aiming to create for this collection of photographs – a dreamy, timeless quality which can often be felt at a beach such as Bedruthan Steps. Standing by the ocean sometimes makes me feel very overwhelmed due to its vastness & endlessness of blue & grey colours. The rocks at the beach make the place feel like a historic ruin; with rocks of all sizes disappearing in to the water, which gives the place a sense of time & fragility.
Colours were selected to be cool & this was highlighted in the jewellery & flowers; with many blues, silvers & turquoise used. The cool tones contrast with the warm skin tones of the models & the clothing – particularly the pink dress & the purple tie.
