Having taken some time away from online activity I wanted to update the journal with some of the projects/events/trips I have been up to since last posting. First up, a photo trip to the Amalfi coast...
Exploring the stunning Amalfi coastline with its intricate winding roads and steep pine coloured cliffs that drape into the Mediterranean offers a plethora of photographic rewards for those with a love of the Southern European landscape.
Pastel hued cliffside dwellings that intertwine with one another, each seeking out a view over the building below it are the format along the entirety of the steep Amalfi coastline. The beautiful popular destination of Positano hosts sinuous narrows streets and pathways throughout the town that leads one to off the beaten track pizzerias or independent Limoncello sellers.
Sitting at the foot of Monte Cerreto mountain, Amalfi town hosts a seafront line of traditional Mediterranean architecture preserving a bustling environment within, all while its stunning mountainous backdrop overlooks this popular destination.
The stunningly clear azure waters of the Mediterranean sea invite onlookers with ease and warm temperatures, all while gently lapping against the white shingle shoreline.
Perhaps one of the most spectacular beach locations amongst the entire Amalfi coastline, Fiordo di Furore is Italy's only fjord and nestles a glistening shingle beach that looks out through a narrow view between the steep cliffs either side.
My base for the three days while photographing the coastline was the sleepy village of Conca Dei Marini. situated approximately halfway between Amalfi and Positano, it suited as an off the beaten path cliffside hideaway. Hosting a few of its own cliffside dwellings (and many many steps!) it serves as a small harbour launch point to access either Positano or Amalfi by boat, but can be accessed by bus from the main road above. The views towards Sorrento in the distance or down at the crystal clear waters of the compact beach truly are wonderful photographic backdrops, no wonder this coastline is such a draw for weddings and wedding photography.
It was a pleasure getting to photograph this rustically elegant region of Italy and sampling some of the local delicacies, in particular the Limón espresso (and I'm not a coffee drinker at all!). Should you be looking for photography for wedding or portraits internationally and appreciate my style, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
