Identical twins Helen and Lucy-Ann asked me to cover the photography for their wellness website Rose & Glow promoting health breaks at their lovely venue Trevear Farm in north Cornwall. The brief was to cover a wide range of imagery, predominantly action shots of them running along the Cornish coast, yoga stretches on the beaches and some formal portraits at the venue.
Luckily the weather & tides were with us, even some very welcome late evening sun setting over the sea at Porthcothan beach. Samson the dog made sure he got involved too…
Wellness seems to have evolved from mindfulness as the current concept for ‘getting away from it all’. Whereas mindfulness steered towards immersing yourself in and enjoying the moment, wellness has more specific, direct aims to boost your health, fitness and self-esteem.
We then headed uptown the cliffs at Bedruthan Steps, one of the last wild stretches of coastline to capture the Cornwall wellness money-shot: the twins high up above the sea backlit golden evening light.
From my perspective it was great fun working with perfect models and shooting spontaneous lifestyle imagery to fill and colour a new website – just the type of work I love doing, as well as showing off Cornwall’s natural beauty for in a wellness context. A pleasure working with you guys and I wish the business a huge amount of success in the future.
