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

The Baby Show Excel

The baby Show at Excel in London is about to be held and for the first time in 3 years The Day That won’t be attending. This is due to unforeseen circumstances and is a real shame as we feel we are one of the most original and most certainly unique products ever to have exhibited at the show.

Where else could you meet 20,000 potential customers that to be honest all love what we do. Hoards of new and expectant mums file past our stand scratching their heads and thinking, why are they showing landscape photographs here at the baby show? It goes something like this. Us – I bet you can’t tell what we do… New Mum, erm…. take photographs. Us – Yes but whats special about what we do? New Mum, erm… don’t know. Us – Ok, tell me the date your baby was born. New Mum – Ok…. We then lead them to our computer and show them a photograph taken at dawn on the day their beautiful baby was born….. New Mum…. burst into tears!

The Day That stand at the Baby show

We really will miss not going to the Excel baby Show and most of all miss all the wonderful companies that attend including Cuddledry, who make award Winning hooded baby bath towels. Konfidence who produce all you need for child & baby swimming and The Miricle Box who supply fantastic maternity products.

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.

Learning The Light

Before I had gone on my first shoot with The Day That, I had asked Gavan and Chris which type of mornings they preferred to take photos, the glorious mornings with an artists dream etched across the sky, or those grey, murky days that make you glad you own central heating. Of course it was unanimous. They preferred the latter. With a challenge to make a visually strong image that shows the beauty and simplicity of these mornings, it would allow their creative juices to flow.

I have had some previous experience with photography and I was happy to take the colourful mornings that sold themselves. But of course, The Day That captures every dawn, and it isn’t up to us what the weather will be doing! And I knew that eventually I would have to take on the challenge they both loved so much.

Kieran Brimson Learning the light with The Day That

Eventually became immediately, and on my first day shadowing Chris on Porthmeor beach we both got soaked from the constant downpour and chilled to the bones from the cold. Through the wind and rain I still took in a lot from Chris about how the light can change during the morning and how to prepare for what the dawn can bring. The trend continued and my newly acquired wet weather gear was given a good christening. Each time joining Gavan or Chris on the morning shoots made me learn that it’s not just about the weather, it is also about the location.

Kieran in more testing conditions

Picking the right location proves to be key in getting great photographs as each location allows you to do something different. An obvious example is if you want to capture the sunrise, get on a beach that faces east. Less obvious examples are knowing about tides, and swells of the sea, and what locations to go to when there is a strong current, or when it is peaceful.

After shadowing them, the guys finally trusted me enough to let me have a camera in my own hands. It is easy to over think when trying to capture a shot, it is also easy to under think. I learnt quickly that the skill is finding that balance of knowing what you want but being confident enough that the decisions almost come naturally. On my first day I over thought. Each minute the sky is brighter and the sun doesn’t hang around to let you get that one last shot. Comparing my shots with Chris’ afterwards, it was clear who the pro was.

Beauty can be found in all conditions

The next day I came back and tried again, and the day after that I had another go, and then another go. Just in the few days I have been out with Gavan and Chris I can see how my images have improved. I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn, but with each return to the coast I have a little more experience that I can use to help me to relax and use the weather to my advantage. Gavan has been taking photos since 21st June 2005. That’s over six years of taking photos for him to get to the stage he is at. With any luck it won’t take me six years to catch up to him.
