Tonnara di Scopello, Sicily - a quick photo from a recent commission

Arriving back in the UK this morning - i'm now going through the collection of photos taken at the Tonnara di Scopello - a former tuna factory converted into exclusive residences.

Had an amazing time with two and a half days to capture the Tonnara with a combination of exterior/architectural detail and landscape shots. With no real rush or pending deadlines for the photos, it was pretty darn cool to simply take my time and attempt to capture the various elements of the location at different times of the day.

I will be posting a few shots from the shoot in the coming days, but first up here's a shot taken yesterday evening - one of the last shots I grabbed. This shot was taken with a 30 second exposure. The water was actually quite rough and I had to hold the tripod down due to high winds. The only adjustments made to the photo is a white balance adjustment in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and basic sharpening on output.

Out of Office - taking photos of the Tonnara di Scopello, Sicily

Two months ago I was at the Tonnara di Scopello getting married. Now i'm being commissioned to head back and grab some promotional photos. I must remember to hand my business card out more often! As it's pretty much my favourite place on earth - i've already got an extensive archive of shots of the Tonnara (a converted tuna factory on the northwest coast of Sicily), however the rooms of the Tonnara have not been professionally photographed. So I'll be spending the first half of next week doing just that. The photos will then be used for general marketing purposes etc. Email coverage is few and far between but I'll try and post a couple of blog updates from the piazza in Scopello village. Ciao ragazzi!

Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily - some photos of the local fishermen etc...

A couple of days before the Tonnara wedding we left Scopello and headed down bright and early to grab some photos in the nearby mafia-stronghold town of Castellammare del Golfo. The locals had told us earlier that the fishing boats came into the docks around 8am. We were expecting the hustle and bustle you might find from fishermen and locals coming together, haggling over prices for the day's catch. But it was a far more subdued affair... which was actually more Sicilian in retrospect. We weaved our way through the labyrinth of back streets down to the port and waited for the action to kick off. Once down at the port, all you had to do was turn around to see the most dramatic of landscapes, the town of Castellammare built on the side of a steep Sicilian mountain. Another big tick in the box of undiscovered non-touristic Sicilian hideaways!
Anyway - without further ado, here's a few snaps!
