Something a Little Different...

Here I want to introduce you to photographer Jake Riding. He has been a wonderful help to and his work is absolutely worth a view!
“I’m 17 years old, I live in Helston, Cornwall and I’m a very passionate photographer. I started photography in 2010 not long after winning a photographic competition in my secondary school (Helston Community College). I like to do event, news, food and creative photography. I also sometimes try and do macro nature photography and aviation photography.
I have a weekly market stall in Helston, that’s every Friday (weather permitting). I started market stall trading on the 7th September 2013 after getting help from Jonathon Radford-Gaby (Helston Town Mayor), and Emma Wooderson (Helston Markets Chair). I sell a selection of photographs from myself, Bob Sharples and John Richards (all local photographers). All photographs are mounted and packaged. I also have my photography for sale in Loravon, Helston too – what’s downstairs of ‘Fruit & Veg 4 U’ shop that’s located near the top half of Meneage Street.
I have previously produced photo-shoots for Sounds Eclectic, The Old Cattle Market (Helston), Cunda Kitchen, Porthleven Primary School, Porthleven Community Group, MyCornwall Magazine and Kingsgate Church (Helston).
My website is and you can ‘Like’ me on Facebook to keep up to date with my work.
I use a Canon EOS Digital SLR 1100D with lenses: 37-76mm zoom, 75-300mm zoom, 50mm prime. I use a YONGNUO speedlite (external flash gun). I edit my photographs in Digital Photo Professional and Adobe Photoshop CS2 using Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate.”
