Boat Photography Showcase. Boatbreakers are always looking to spread the word around the issue of boat disposal. We feel that a perfect way to do this is to get as many people aware of the problem as possible. A great way to do this is through Art and Photography. Therefore we want to engage with artist and photographers who are using boats or recycled boats as their inspiration.
Whilst looking on the Strong Island website we noticed they had featured a German Portsmouth-based Photographer called Alex Giesser, who had a number of boat pictures in his portfolio. It originally caught our eye as the main image was of Lock Lake at Eastney. That area is a real hotspot for abandoned boats.
After looking through Alex’s Instagram (@brewmage) we found more images of boats in and around the Portsmouth area. Another image that stood out was of an old abandoned yacht stuck in the mud.
Alex gave an interview to Strong Island, you can read it here. But he was also kind enough to let us feature some of his boat photography images on our site.
In the interview, he told SI:
“I’m a German photographer now living in Portsmouth after spending a few years in NYC, Los Angeles, and Massachusetts.”
“I’ve only been here (Portsmouth) for three weeks but I LOVE Langstone Harbour (the tint of the water is surreal and almost tropical around golden hour) and nearby Hayling Island. Being by the water again is very important to me after living in the mountains for the past years. The boats and seagulls immediately made me feel at home.”
If you are a Photographer or Artist and have boat related pictures you would like featured, get in contact! You can email, Tweet, Facebook or Instagram us. Furthermore the same can be said for writers. If you have an opinion piece on the issue of boat disposal we’d also be happy to feature you in our blog.
