My name is Hamish Devlin (aka Coast Photography), a Poole-based, freelance event photographer with over a decade of experience covering live music, sports, conferences and interior photography.
More years ago than I care to remember, I graduated from Newport School of Art and Design with an HND in Documentary Photography. Since that time I have photographed numerous bands including Placebo, Simple Minds, David Bowie and The Kaiser Chiefs as well as having work published in various magazines.
Living and working so close to the sea has also meant that I have plenty of time to explore my true aspiration of taking beautiful images of the Dorset coastline. I particularly enjoy revisiting favourite locations to explore how the ever-changing seasons and the time of day effect the light, atmosphere and mood.
My photographic style is innovative, unusual and highly adaptable. I like to do things differently, finding new and original ways of providing stunning photos that will both delight my clients and satisfy my creativity. I’m great at building relationships with people, and personable enough to take shots of you genuinely laughing rather than simply pretending to do so for the benefit of the camera.
