Interview with Jeff Carter

Interviews

12 December 2014

Posted by Sally Hart

Hi Jeff! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I am originally from Bristol but now live in Dunbar, just 30-miles from Edinburgh, with my wife and daughter. Scotland has always been close to my heart as my Grandfather was from Greenock and the name of my company comes from my full name - Jeffrey Stuart MacLean Carter - MacLean being my great grandmother’s maiden name.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AThis summer I went out to Bass Rock off the East Lothian coast. For eight months of the year Bass Rock is home to the world’s largest single island colony of Gannets – 150000 of them! The landing trips are run by the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick and numbers are strictly limited. To be surrounded by so many seabirds at such close quarters is one of the best wildlife trips I have ever taken, and I have been on a few in South Africa, Canada as well as the UK. Being able to shoot the birds on their nests and in flight on a wide angle lens is also a first for me and a very strange, but ultimately satisfying, experience.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AAfter 18 years with Nikon in July 2014 I moved 100% to Fujifilm and currently have an X-T1, X-Pro1, X100, nine lenses and accessories. My favourite set up is my X-Pro1 plus the 18mm f2 and 56mm f1.2 lenses when travelling to places like Paris, London and Sao Paulo on business. This lightweight kit allows me to go unnoticed in a crowd and limiting myself to two prime lenses gets the creative juices flowing because I’m not worried about what kit I am using.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

ADare to be different - Try to think out of the box. When photographing always take the obvious shot (the banker) and then try to come up with at least four alternative variations. It is amazing how many photographers take a picture in the same place as thousands of people before them – you could almost put a ‘stand here / place your tripod here’ sign in almost all of the most photographed places in the world. Try to think differently and don’t be a photographic sheep!

'My favourite shot I've uploaded to Picfair is ‘There’s a Storm Approaching’ which was taken from the top of Doon Hill near Dunbar with the countryside lit by sunlight ahead of a storm front producing one of the best rainbows I have ever seen. This image was taken three days after we moved up to East Lothian in August 2013 and has set the standard for my landscape work in and around my new home in the south east of Scotland.' Read less

'This shot was taken in the pedestrian tunnel that runs under the race circuit at Imola in Italy. I saw the shot the day before but there were no spectators at the track so I waited at one end for a single person to go down the tunnel and took the shot when he reached the optimum point.' Read less

'The colourful harbour front house in Tobermory on the Isle of Mull off the West Coast of Scotland is one most photographed scenes in the UK. We spent Christmas and New Year on the island and I was determined to get a different shot of this scene. I went down to the harbour before dawn and set the camera up at the end of the stone pier to capture the first light as the sun came up over the mountains to the left. The sunrise bounced off the low clouds above the harbour and the strange light lasted no more than 3 minutes. I took this 30 second exposure and is one of favourite shots from my many trips to the Isle of Mull.' Read less

'In Dunbar we have a surf school called Coast-to-Coast and there are usually plenty of surfers out and about on Belhaven Bay Beach. On one of our regular walks on the 3-miles stretch of beach we spotted this surfer waiting for a wave to appear. The wind was light and there wasn’t any significant waves so as he waited I took the shot. Here’s to Waiting was a famous Guinness advert in the 90s of surfers tackling the big rollers and the title immediately came to mind for this shot.' Read less
