[ezcol_2third]Whitby Photography – Glenn Kilpatrick

I started taking photographs around 2010. I had a sea angling website and wanted to share with our readership the wonderful Yorkshire Coast and the scenes we see and take for granted whilst out on the coast.

Shortly afterwards I started the Real Whitby Website and the photographs I was taking came in handy when writing articles about the town.

I started with Panasonic Bridge Camera (The Lumix fz8), and progressed to my first DSLR camera, which I still own and use today, A Canon 500d.

I continued to use my bridge camera for sea angling photography as I felt it to be too much of a risk to take my DSLR into a fishing environment.

After ruining 3 Bridge Cameras through getting them wet whilst fishing, I changed to a smaller superzoom camera for my angling photography. I now use the Canon Sureshot sx 220 which sadly is now discontinued. However I managed to find a supply of old stock and bought 3 of the same camera for £70 to ensure I had a half decent camera to use whilst fishing and out on my kayak.

As you can see, my photography is based largely around Whitby And The North York Moors. We live in one of the most wonderful parts of the world, so taking photos here is just so easy. You’re spoilt for choice in things to capture around here, it’s just so beautiful and there is always something interesting happening.

Although I do take the odd Landscape my love is really of people, and more so the people of Whitby. If you study my shots, youll see that most contain people somewhere in the shot. I firmly believe that candid is the only way to capture people.

Once you ask people to pose, their behaviour becomes all abnormal and the photographs just dont capture that same sense of natural behaviour you get from candid. I like to capture life as we see it today.

I would probably call myself a street photographer. I just love to capture everyday life events, and I just know in 20, 30 40 or even a hundred years time people will be looking at the photographs in amazment of how we all lived and behaved in 2014.

I dont claim to be anything special, most of the time I think my photographs are bad to average in comparison to some of the work I see out there. I dont like many of my own photographs, I see my own flaws and often it’s the case that the odd photograph I do like are the ones which other people seem to like least.

Inspirational people to me are the likes of Joe Cornish, Ged Hickey , Leigh Rebacca (A Simply Awesome Photographer), and Nicola Taylor whose work I simply adore.

Perhaps my number 1 inspiration and favourite photographer is Matt Hart from Liverpool. Matt must think I’m stalking him given the amount of times I mention his name. But his work is simply awesome, his black and white street photography is the best ive ever seen, and to boot hes a good bloke, says it how it is, and loves a laugh as well.

So thats me. I dont claim to be a great photographer, I dont take myself too seriously and I just enjoy taking photographs. I love Whitby and I love all the people here, locals, tourists and anyone esle. Anyone who tells you any different is simply talking from their posterior.

Thanks For reading. I hope you enjoy the pics. Please feel free to leave feedback below ??

WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT GLENN KILPATRICK

The following comments have been submitted by site readers either through Social media, Email or by using The Comments section at the foot of this page.

  • Mr Hooyah – “You are kidding yourself if you think these images are good. I’ve had a quick look on your website and without been harsh your photos are nothing special and there is a lot better amateur photographers out there producing far better work than you.”
  • Sandra Walker – My son is a professional photographer who works in London he was home yesterday and I showed him some of your pics he thought they were really good he pointed out some technical points which could be better but that went way over my head lol.
  • Alissa Orton – At times I have often found it difficult to see why Whitby is so well loved, your photographs show the hidden depth and beauty that Whitby holds, seeing old and new pictures helps you understand the real essence of Whitby, from the diverse characters that have been and are still remembered today and the changeable views throughout the seasons.
  • Louise Hill – I think your photos are amazing Glenn !! X
  • Sue Britnell – Glenn I truly love looking at all your photos of Whitby, they are so atmospheric and beautiful, just make me miss Whitby even more that I already do! xx
  • I’m like Sue Britnell. I love looking at all your photos Glenn – you are so talented xx
  • Anne Shaw – I know nothing about the technical side of photography, but I do like your photos. You notice unusual things and use interesting angles. I have learnt quite a lot from your pictures and am a lot more aware now when I am taking photos. My pictures are now more interesting as a result!
  • Sue Matkin I love looking at you pictures glenn. They just make me smile.thank you
  • Jenny Lightfoot – Your pics are fantastic make me want to come to Whitby more
  • Denise Dee Broadley – Your pics are great love the different ones you put on here daily
  • Carol Moorhouse – I think the majority of people don’t look for the technicality in a shot, I think a photograph produces an emotion, a memory or is simply a pleasure to look at. That can certainly be said of many of your photographs. And probably the reason why I don’t like pictures of people unless they belong to me or I know them. I really like your views of the harbour, ocean, views of the town and outlying areas. And in particular the snowy wintry Xmas ones. Thank you! Your clearly talented and not sure why you don’t open a gallery .
  • Max Height – I love the black n white and the wintery ones just love the contrast of the snow with all around it

    Who is Mr Hooyah, has he got some sort of personality disorder going on ? He sounds very jelous and sounds like a complete birk. Funny how the one person being negative fails to give a real name whilst everyone else is up front about who they are. I looked up Mr Hooyah on Google and found some very strange goings on. Wondering if its him ?

    Hi Glenn. Just found all these photos, and wanted to tell you how much we have enjoyed flicking through them. Evidently you do a fantastic job of what we call ‘ capturing the moment’ which to our minds is what photography is all about. Me and my hubby love Whitby and regrettably don’t get chance to visit often 🙁 Your photos help to fill this void – Thank you. 🙂 Keep up the good work Glenn. x

    Hello Glen I just want to say your pictures are great. I love taking pictures and wish I could achieve some of your talent for bringing the pictures to life like you do. They seem to have a life of their own and really stand out. My wife found your pictures first and showed some to me. She also is a fan. You have a great talent Glen and thanks for sharing it….kind regards James.

    Hello Glen, Hope you are well and can find time to read my email.

    Been looking at your images and think they are good. Stay with the seascape and dusk type subjects. Trust me, they are your best images. This where I think you are brilliant!

    I use a csc Fujifilm xm 1 camera and a canon eos 100D with the same lens as you. A Sigma 10mm-20mm.

    Love landscapes and seascapes. Recently tried my hand at Cityscapes, both colour and black and white. A square format with the Fujifilm camera.

    Hope my comments help you.

    You are welcome to contact me via my email.

    Take care Chris
