Herm Island: A New Adventure

Hello from Herm Island! A short ferry ride from Guernsey in the Channel Islands this private paradise island near France is my home for the next 6 months!

I've only been here a week but I feel like it's going to be wonderful being here! I'm actually here to do the job of Beach Cafe Supervisor... looking out at the sea everyday doesn't sound so bad! Plus a fixed rate for accommodation and food it's a great way to save without too many distractions to spend it on (no nightclubs or cinema's here!).

However I've also had positive noises about offering Island Photo Shoots to hotel guests in the evenings which I'm really excitied about! I'm trying to get some sample imagery for marketing so watch this space...

So, the first of many island collection photographs I'm sure, with my first day off I took the following images to share on my blog.

I started by walking up from my accommodation but as is the case right now the wind is bitter looking over to the beautiful beaches on the east side. As the weather improves I imagine most of my pictures will show the east coast but for now it's this view:

This next panorama is the path I walk down everyday to get to the Shell Beach cafe.

And this is Pinetrees, where I live. It's a cottage divided into private rooms and shared bathrooms.

Near where I live and at the top of the hill is this chapel with courtyards and self catering cottages all around.

This is the view over to Guernsey from our little hilltop village:

And I love this little gate!

So from here you walk down the hill on the west side until you get to the hotel and the front of the island. I do this route at least once a day as my dinner, the pub and the shops are all located here!

At the bottom of the hill I was thinking about where I would do my family photo shoots! This is the beach right in front of the hotel:

And then the harbour beach, very nice lighting but very low tide!

I can't wait to pose a family or couple in this last image to get the perfect 'essence of Herm' image.

You can hopefully see now why I'm happy to be here!

Many, many more picture to come I'm sure...
