Theatre of the Sea - Steve Tuck

We now have over 35,000 photographs in our collection, that’s a lot of pictures of the dawn. We go out in all conditions from stunning sunrises to dramatic stormy mornings that take our breath away.

We have decided to create a collection of our favourite photographs from each month and have asked our followers on Facebook to name them. This is our chosen January picture and it was named “Theatre of the sea”  by Steve Tuck and is very apt.

Anyone born on this day would have a very dramatic picture on their wall taken on the day they were born the perfect newborn gift. At the end of the year we will be creating a calendar with a picture for each month that hopefully will reflect the seasonal changes.

Join us on Facebook to get the chance to name one of our beautiful photographs.

Beautiful fine art landscape photography....everyday

Since June 2005 we have been going out every single day at sunrise in all weather conditions to take beautiful fine art landscape photographs. I have stood in the middle of a beach in the pouring rain and still managed to find something beautiful to photograph.

Even when it's raining there is beauty to be found.

At mid summer I have to be at my chosen location by 3.30am to make sure I capture the pre dawn. There is something quite magical when you realise that you are one of the very few people crazy enough to be awake at that time and to witness mother nature at it’s most impressive.

Mother nature at it's best

There is something very spiritual in waiting for the sun to rise and for capturing the process as a photograph knowing that this is the start of someones first day on earth or the first day of the rest of their lives.

A wonderful reminder of a special day

A short film about us

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Location Location Location

Being based on the south west coast of England, we get treated to all the weird and wonderful types of weather that makes this country famous.  This makes each morning different from the last and it keeps us here at The Day That on our toes, and we have to be ready for whatever the weather may throw at us.

We as The Day That photographers have many different indicators that can tell us which is the best location to head to before dawn, and what locations can give us the results we need to provide images that you would want hanging above a fire place or in a child’s bedroom, bought as a christening gift.

The perfect Christening gift for the nursery

As we go out every morning our knowledge of what the weather is doing is just as good as any news report. Conversations in the office will often be about what spots are currently working, if the tide is coming in or out, and what the wind direction is.

The Perfect Shot

The Perfect Photograph

However when we get up in the morning, and the sky is dark, we still cannot be certain what location we are going to end up at.

I live in Hayle, which is about a 15 minute drive from St. Ives, a town that has many small beaches that offer different things and is a place we go to a lot. On my drive over to St.Ives I keep an eye on the sky, judge the cloud movement and get a feel for the weather, and this is when I make a decision on what location to travel to.

If the sky is clear, we head to a location that points toward the sun so we can see it appear over the horizon. Simple. However being in England, the weather does not always allow that, and we have to head off to other locations to capture something that creates a great image and will tell a story of what that morning was like.

Beaches such as Porthgwidden or the back of The Island has some great rock formations, with a long exposure and a bit of a swell, we are able to capture some great movement around the rocks.

The back of the Island, St Ives

Carbis Bay, although close by, can offer something entirely different. The beach is tucked in and almost hidden away from the shoreline. The water sweeps around the corner from St Ives and is pushed forwards, giving us perfectly shaped slow moving waves for us to capture.

Time of year also plays a huge factor, anyone who has lived in the same place for a long period of time will know just how much the Earth’s tilt affects where the sun actually rises, given which of the four seasons we are in. A clear dawn in the summer will be completely different to a clear dawn in the winter, and we have to change our approach accordingly.

My First The Day That sale

The law of averages suggested that sooner or later one of my pictures would be used to celebrate a wedding, or welcome a newborn baby into the world. The question was how long would it take until this order came through.

There had been eager anticipation in the office, which slowly built up as I had more and more dawn photography under my belt. Days either side of mine began to sell and once or twice there a false celebration when realising the latest order was for the dawn on the day before or after I had gone out.

Eventually the order came through, 24th November 2011, picture 1. This picture would mean a lot to the family receiving it, it also, suddenly, was a picture that meant a lot to me, as it would be my first sale. Luckily there was no expense spared to celebrate the occasion, a large exhibition size picture in a dark wood frame was a great first sale.

There was a small wait before the print, as we had to replace the paper we use to print at that size to ensure the picture would be perfect. It was exciting to see it in physical form, and although it looked exactly the same as it did on the monitor, it looked so much better on paper.

The picture was then mounted and personalised, and the process was almost complete. With the border of the mount surrounding the image it was obvious why images should be printed, not just left to sit on a computer hard drive. The picture was stunning to look at and once it had been framed, I was very proud of the work I had done.

My first sale, a very proud moment.

It felt great to know that this picture would not only be hanging on somebody’s wall for years to come, but it would also be a picture that a family would have an emotional attachment to.

I look forward to taking many more pictures so they can be used to celebrate all of life’s special occasions.
