I am a single parent and moved to Cornwall 13 years ago after working in a very fast paced corporate environment. Prior to that I had been a visitor to the county for most of my life and have always been drawn to it’s beauty, finding peace and calmness here. It was always a goal of mine to move to Cornwall and after a very supportive manager allowed me to take voluntary redundancy I achieved my dream!
Being a single parent with no real support network has had it’s challenges but I have always got through low times by getting out into nature, particularly by the sea. In December last year I hit a really low patch. When I started to feel a little stronger something (probably a strong intuition) made me pick up my Canon SLR camera. I dug out my walking boots and started walking parts of the south west coast path armed with a flask of tea, a snack and my OS map! Over the last few months I have started to re-discover the breathtaking beauty of this stunning county. I am totally inspired by the sea, the coast path, beaches, nature, the moors, the woods, Cornish heritage and being outdoors!
I am not a technical photographer and probably never will be! I’m certainly not the best but I have developed a real passion and happiness being behind my camera lens. Nature is nurturing and has helped me heal. I have received such positivity and encouragement from my friends and family who seem to like my photos (!) so I have decided to set up this website to share some of them with you too!
Another love of mine has always been interior design. In previous years I have managed a successful 4 star holiday cottage and staged several holiday rentals for a holiday agency. I now have a formal qualification and have decided to offer smaller affordable "packages" for home re-styling, styling homes for sale and holiday rental staging - and I can offer photography as well! See my Inspire Interior Design Page for further details.
I post a weekly blog on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Inspired-in-Cornwall-314346649209783/ with photos from my travels around Cornwall and I do hope that you can join me and enjoy!
Thanks for your support! Sam x
