Seascapes and Treescape Photography
It’s never a reccy.
Hello and welcome to another blog post from me…
Today is not all about me, I got to meet with a fellow photographer I always have time for and admire his outlook and most of all, his company. So I hope you join me and watch the video below of our time investigating areas of Formby we have never been before…
Mr James Bell joined me mid-morning to walk the coast and invest some time in the landscape beyond the shores and lapping waves at Formby point. That’s what we thought we would be doing, but instead, we chatted and got into a deep state of thought when it came to seeking out compositions.
I’d stated about it being a reccy, which for me is unusual because I do love to get shots in any conditions even when it’s flat light like we got on this day. James soon had me thinking beyond my initial statement and off we went into a place I was not expecting that day.
A coastal woodland, TREESCAPE. Wow!
What a find, but I will have to go back, it was extremely hard to get my eye in as I’d been set up mentally that day to be creating minimalist photographs. Not that I needed much to change my viewpoint but this woodland is deep and quite unique.
Now in the video you will see a variety of images, I didn’t want to start explaining in the video about the other times I’d visited and the workshop in extreme conditions when I got a few shots. So I thought it would be good to dive into this with a blog post and here we are.
The series of images come from my time with James but also a workshop I’d created for a fellow learned friend.
I don’t create vlogs or videos when I’m with a client, out of respect and to give them 100% dedication, but what I do is take images and show angles and compositions achievable throughout the day.
Within this project, I added a few of these images. The images I got with James were on a much more sedated scene, I did start off creating minimalist exposures, but our conversation and walk took centre over and I’m so glad it did.
We both explored parts of Formby that both of us had never seen. Very exciting indeed. So instead of a 50-minute video, I thought you would appreciate more of a story. I’ve added the images in a small gallery below.

I hope you enjoyed the video with myself and James, drop a comment below and let me know your thoughts about when you go out.
It wouldn’t be a blog post without a few images from this outing. But before I do make sure you check out James’s channel and buy one or both of his books, they are bloody belting! Click Here to Join James.
