Meet William Allen, the man behind KernowInFocus, (for those unsure Kernow is Cornish for Cornwall), a whizz behind the camera and an all-around awesome guy. How do I know? Well, he's married to my beautiful cousin Sophie.
Over the years, Will's love for photography and the technology used to capture the perfect shot has grown and from this side of the screen it has been interesting watching him turn his hobby into a full-time job. It also means, of course, I get to see wonderful pictures of my family who live down in Cornwall.
KernowInFocus is of course based in Cornwall, Truro to be exact. While Will himself says he loves taking pictures of anything from landscapes to animals, his real passion is people, be it a wedding or a portrait. This is because in his own words; “Well because people are what interest me, you interest me. We all have so many expressions, so many stories to tell.”
As well as of course offering his services for hire, be it for your special occasion or in his studio. Will also offers the opportunity ability to buy some of his wonderful prints from his online shop. Here you will find images which include some beautiful shots from around Cornwall, a well as a gorgeous capture of a grey wolf.
Perhaps one of his most loved pieces available in the shop happens to be of the historical Charlestown harbour, with the tallship Phoenix moored to the side. This location is probably, most well known for it being one of the filming locations for the TV series Poldark.
Will has kindly given me a mount only print of this beautiful photograph to giveaway to one of you lucky people and all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is let me know:
