Working with Mother Goose Films, I spent a good deal of last Summer out and about shooting pictures along the length of the Wales Coast Path for their marketing resource. All the way from the Southern start on the Severn, along the Glamorgan coast, Gower and Pembrokeshire, through Ceredigion up to the Llyn Peninsula, Anglesea and the North Wales coast to the other end of the path near Chester. At 870 miles we didn’t quite cover every footstep but certainly shot some highlights. It was at times exhausting but always great fun and despite battling with poor conditions in some locations; waiting for the light to show the landscape at its best, we managed to get a collection of images and video from the length of the path that really shows off what a wonderful resource it is. As a long distance walking route or for a quick dog walk; it’s really very special to be able to walk every mile of the Wales coast.
If I travel to North Wales it is usually to head to the mountains and if I go East it’s usually for the draw of the city as we are somewhat spoiled by the wonderful coastline here in Pembrokeshire; but it was a revelation to get to spend time on lots of other parts of the Welsh coast and the path takes you through the lot. From industrial sites backing up onto the sea, to estuaries, towering cliffs, huge beaches and hidden bays, woodland, big city and tiny village, the path covers a lot of terrain. It was also a pleasure to meet up with so many lovely people along the way. Everyone had a story to tell about why they are drawn to the coast and what the path means to them as part of their daily lives or as a holiday destination.
The images are now available to use as part of a marketing toolkit for businesses or individuals requiring pictures from the coast path…

Even on the most beautiful evenings, you can always find a beach to yourself in Wales… the downside is that with no one else around, sometimes I had to jump in front of the camera as it sat on the tripod and do a bit of modelling myself!
