As a keen sailor herself, taking pictures of boats and coastal scenes has a special appeal for Suffolk photographer Gill Moon

As a keen sailor herself, taking pictures of boats and coastal scenes has a special appeal for Suffolk photographer Gill Moon




I have always had an interest inphotography and never goanywhere without my camera,but it wasnt until 2008 that Istarted to take my hobby moreseriously. I bought myself a new NikonD700 camera and spurred on by familyand friends set up a company called Across the Bows.


I specialise in inshore marinephotography around Suffolks coast andrivers and have a particular love ofboats; taking every opportunity I can toget out on the water.


I am lucky enough to live by the RiverDeben at Ramsholt and have beenrecording scenes from the riverbankwith my camera for the last two years.


The river provides me with a constantsource of inspiration. It has a beautywhich changes with the seasons and isa magical place that I am very lucky toshare.


Summer is busy and provides mewith a good variety of boats to photograph from classic yachts andThames sailing barges to luxury motorboats. I love the challenge of capturingboats on the water and people enjoyingthe river. Owners love pictures of theirboats and I spend a lot of time on thewater in the summer trying to captureas many images as possible as well asundertaking commissions.


Winter is my preferred season, thequality of the light is better forphotography and the sunsets over theriver can be stunning. Winter walkswith my dog often yield greatphotographic opportunities and I love the river when it is truly wild.


When I am not photographing theriver I volunteer with Suffolk WildlifeTrust as a photographer and runluxury holidays with my partneraboard our 1897 Dutch sailing barge Twee Gebroeders.
