About Kernow Seascapes


The seascapes of Newquay based Cornish photographer Matt Montano.

A Collection of Cornish seascapes by photographer Matt Montano.

Matt Montano is a photographer & the owner of Kernow Seascapes & lives with his Fiancée in Newquay on the north coast of Cornwall. He specializes in the stunning seascapes of the Duchy.

In 2009 – 2012 he completed a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Resource Management, reflecting his interest in environmental conservation & management of the coastal environment. Matt’s coastal seascape photography has a strongly weighted focus toward images which capture the drama & evocative nature of Cornwall’s rugged Ocean coastline as it is exposed to the dynamic power of the sea, and the fleeting, momentary nature of cloud & sunlight that can allow for the creation of images which have a truly arresting, enchanting & compelling visual impact.

For seascapes, Matt uses both Medium Format Bodies & Lenses, such as Pentax & Fujifilm, and 35mm Nikon DSLR’s & Lenses. Matt enjoys the versatility of DSLR’s. He favours the Nikon brand for both the quality & variety of their prime lenses. Matt frequently uses Nikon’s full frame, 36 Megapixel Nikon D810 body & Nikon wide-angle prime lenses. Matt also enjoys the Pentax 645z and Fujifilm GFX 50s bodies.

He is also currently a member of the British Institute of Professional Photography & Royal Photographic Society, holding the entry level professional qualification of Licentiateship with both the BIPP & RPS, and is now working towards a full Associate qualification with both of these respective organizations.

In 2019 Matt hopes to begin the final year of a BA (Hons) Photography course with Falmouth University. This course involves three modules; ‘Contemporary Approaches in Practice’, ‘Professional Contexts & Development’, & ‘Major Project’. This course is intended to be a stepping stone & lead towards the two year MA Photography masters degree course at Falmouth University, in 2020. While studying for the MA, Matt intends to enrol on the Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education, to permit teaching at university level. Leading on from this point, a possible career path would be to teach landscape photography commercially & additionally enter in to a career in Academia with Falmouth University, or another Academic Institution.
