The new Visit Sidmouth 2021 Brochure was launched recently. It brings a fresh and modern look to accompany the new Visit Sidmouth brand launched this year and of the three photographers credited in the brochure, two are members of Sidmouth Photographic Club.

The front cover is devoted to an exceptional sunset over Sidmouth beach and esplanade photographed by Michael Ginsberg LRPS, particularly notable for the rich magenta colouring.

Another image by Michael occupies an inside double page, taken of the seafront and skyline from the sea. Michael described the circumstances, “This image was taken from the Stuart Line Cruise boat on return from the very enjoyable cruise to Exmouth. This perspective of the town, when seen from the water, is one most of us do not often see in everyday life and, if anyone has not already taken one of the Stuart Line day cruises either from Sidmouth Beach or from Exmouth, I would thoroughly recommend it for that alone. Pack a long lens if you can and you will be rewarded with some lovely wildlife opportunities, shots of the towns here and further west, and a unique perspective of the Jurassic Coast. It makes a fantastic day out, when restrictions allow again”.

Fellow club member and local professional photographer, Sarah Hall, is a regular contributor to printed and digital resources locally and you are very likely to recognise her distinctive style in the Visit Sidmouth 2021 Brochure. One of those images is also featured on this page. Sarah’s images capture the simple joy for residents and visitors to our lovely town alike, often featuring people and animals they are always very beautiful and optimistic.

Sarah brings a special empathy to all her work which includes a growing portraiture and wedding client base in addition to the commercial work you will recognise her for and you will find more of her work on her website at [https://www.sarahhallphotography.co.uk]

Also featured in the Visit Sidmouth 2021 brochure is work by Kyle Baker, another local professional photographer and videographer, who is well known to members of the Club and is successfully growing his business after winning a prestigious funding award from The Prince’s Trust in 2016.

The Visit Sidmouth 2021 Brochure successfully depicts the beautiful, elegant and bustling seaside holiday location we know and love so much. It will be a busy year for tourism locally and many new visitors will inevitably experience the area for the first time after lockdown is lifted. It is a fitting tribute for Sidmouth Photographic Club, which was founded in Sidmouth in 1936, to have members’ images chosen for the official Visit Sidmouth 2021 Brochure and well done to Michael and Sarah for contributing such lovely images of our town.
