Simon Bourne is a Cornwall landscape, cityscape, garden and wildlife photographer with a wide portfolio of striking images, who moved from London a couple of years ago, where he had been based with his family for over 40 years.
Based in Tintagel, he enjoys the fine balance between the artistic challenges of the shot and the technical skills needed to get the best out of the image, both in-camera, and in Lightroom and Photoshop afterwards.
Waiting for the right moment and the best, or most unusual, lighting conditions are features of Simon’s photography.

Simon uses Nikon DSLR cameras and lenses to make the very best out of the light and the moment.
Prior to becoming a professional photographer, he was an award-winning Civil and Structural Engineer, with over 40 years experience in the design and construction of major bridges all over the world.
The delicate balance between the aesthetic and technical constraints applies equally to both good photography and good bridge design!
