How it's Done
'Mariette of 1915'
I had been out on the waters of Carrick Roads off the coast of Falmouth for a couple of days, shooting the classic super-yachts – some measuring in excess of 200 feet long – that were competing in the bi-annual 2010 Pendennis Cup Regatta. As I sat in my hotel room later, editing and processing the day’s images, I was generally pleased with the pictures of the yachts sailing in these waters – but I wanted more.
Sometimes on an event I shoot from the press boat along with other press snappers; sometimes I charter my own boat; or sometimes, as on this occasion, the organisers provide me with a boat. The latter means that, as with my own charter, I can call the shots – providing of course the driver can pass muster!
