Landscape photograph of Portstewart, Northern Ireland, by Jamie.

North coast creative.

I got into photography through my love of parkour. I was 16 and started off doing videography of my friends and myself doing parkour and made edits and uploaded to my youtube channel.

Then 2 years later my brother had bought a camera and I helped myself to it one day when he was at work and I’ve not been able to set down a camera ever since. I eventually stopped the videography and put my full attention into photography.

Almost a year ago I moved to the North Coast to live with my girlfriend and from a photographers point of view it was the best decision ever made. The North Coast has some spectacular scenery and amazing opportunities for photographs.

Before leaving Banbridge I felt like I had hit a dead end with my creativity as there isn’t much to see or do when it comes to the photography side of things, so moving to Coleraine really opened up a whole new world for me.

I now feel like I have improved so much in such a short space of time, which is why I now am trying to develop a business in specialities including weddings, fashion, portraits and pets.

I hope to eventually travel the world as a full photographers shooting different cultures, countries and animals for magazines.

Photographer Jamie Henderson, Coleraine, Northern Ireland.
Landscape photograph of Coleraine, Northern Ireland, by Jamie.
Coleraine: I got this photo on a jetty off the River Bann that I had walked by for months, always thinking to myself that it would make a great sunset photograph. I went one evening on the off chance that there might be a nice sunset but I managed to forget my tripod so had to balance my camera on a backpack but still managed to nail it.
Photograph of Meg the horse, by Jamie, Northern Ireland.
Meg: Yasmin, my girlfriends sister, wanted a portrait of her horse Meg taken at her farm in Eglinton. It is, to date, one of the hardest photos I’ve ever had to take, as I needed an off-camera flash with a soft box, whilst trying to work with a horse that is very boisterous and didn’t want to listen. Even though it was hard work, it paid off as it is one of my favourite portraits.
Landscape photograph by Jamie of the Carrick-a-Rede area in Northern Ireland.
Carrick-a-Rede: This was one of the first places I visited last year when I moved to the North Coast as it was top of my to-do list. I have seen a lot of photographs online of this location, most of them of the actual rope bridge, but I was really inspired by the view just before it.
Landscape photograph by Jamie of the Banbridge area, Northern Ireland.
Banbridge: I took this one whilst trying to learn how to take landscapes using a slow shutter speed. This was my first ever attempt at it, and I sat for two hours as the sun set, then combined three separate images to make this photograph.
Landscape photograph of Portstewart, Northern Ireland, by Jamie.
Portstewart: I take my camera nearly everywhere I go. I was on my way back to the car after walking our dogs on the beach, and the reflections for the town caught my eye and made for a perfect photo.
