Race around the Island- Amadeus Posted by Jake Woodnutt on Thu 18th Sep 2014 @ 6:21 am
Last month there was a Around the Island Yacht Race here in Alderney. I only took these few photographs just as we were about to come over the line, fighting for the finish line with Amadeus. My boat 'A Roamer of Alderney' managed to come first in the race, which is a very good feeling considering this time last year before I started work rebuilding her- she probably wouldn't even float...I got this email from Janie, the owner of Amadeus.

'Thanks for taking this photo of the kids! It was their first race on a yacht instead of a dinghy, and they all had a great day. Your photo of them is a special way of remembering their achievement! Cheers, Janie'

Really enjoy taking photos of sailing and yachts. I think i'm going to really start to get into it and sail out of the harbour and take photos of Yachts arriving in Alderney under full sail. If you are sailing to Alderney or even have a yacht/Boat in Alderney and would like me to take some photos, Let me know when you will be out and I will do my best to see you outside the harbour.
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!
