Lately by Karl Mackie

By Natalia Escaño on

We had some great waves in the UK back in May this year. In fact they were so good they inspired me to buy my first non-self shaped surfboard in 10 years.
Home is Newquay in Cornwall, I've always loved shooting where I live down in the south of the UK. We get waves! They are not always as consistent as we want them to be, but when they arrive and the weather patterns all come together its pretty good.
I really enjoyed shooting this roll of film. I committed to taking my 1954 Minolta SR-7 everywhere while this swell lasted, thats a heavy beast of a camera! I wanted to focus more on the surfers and the positions they get in whilst surfing waves.
Location's that were shot for this post include Fistral Beach, Little Fistral, Lusty Glaze and Watergate Bay. I used Lomography and T-Max film with cross processing going on in the development process.

Music Inspiration

I enjoy playing on my own or being accompanied by my wife Margarita, who I sometimes convince to join me on stage as she can do percussion and play the keys. I'll carry on writing and making music as long as I'm around. Music is a part of me and it reminds me how wonderful life is.
