Tenacious Posted by Jake Woodnutt on Mon 25th Aug 2014 @ 12:57 pm
Being on the sea has always been a major part of my lifestyle living on Alderney. I am either in it or on it nearly every day. Although I spend a lot of my time flying places or even sailing places to photograph weddings in the UK and the rest of the channel islands, I find the week days I am on the water more and I take only really photos of the sea and boats.

Last week we had a training sailing ship called the 'Tenacious' sail into Braye Harbour- Alderney and I got the following photographs from the little rib owned by one of Alderney's restaurants 'The Georgian House' who I used to and sometimes still do work for.
I love black and white, I love turning the contrast up and seeing the blacks be black and the whites shine giving a really moody photograph.
I wanted to get a photograph of the sun setting behind, but unfortunately shortly after I took these photographs they started the engine and headed out.
I tend to use black and white a lot with my wedding photography, I have all of this years wedding to post on this blog so keep your eye open for new posts!
Alderney's well known Fog.Posted by Jake Woodnutt on Sat 19th Jul 2014 @ 3:42 pm
As some of you may know the fog in Alderney can come in think and fast. I was down working on the boat the other day when within 10 minutes the fog had turned the visibility from 3 miles to 20 feet.

Lucky this time it stayed around for half a hour and then it was gone.
These photos taken on my Fujifilm x100s which I luckily had with me on the boat.

Been doing so much sailing recently its great! Here is my little Wharram Tiki 26 Catamaran A Roamer of Alderney, anchored in Telegraph bay in Alderney on what felt like the hottest day of the year. Can beat it!
A Roamer of AlderneyPosted by Jake Woodnutt on Wed 16th Jul 2014 @ 11:05 am
I dont know how much you may know of my little catamaran. A Roamer was built by my parents 25 years ago here in Alderney. after 15 years of use she was taken out the water and left to sit and rot for the last 10 years. Last year I went to inspect the damage. The main structural beam which holds it all together. gave way under by foot. I have spent the last year re-building her and she is a good as new!

This has been transport for me to get to the UK and around the Channel Islands to photograph weddings. What fun! Here is a little video I made Sailing from Poole to Alderney
