Introducing brand ambassador Layton Bennett – Photographer, Coastguard, Windsurfer

Layton Bennett (Layts)

 Who Are You:

 I have a love for the water and have spent my entire life either in it or close to it. I’m a watersports enthusiast who used to be a lot better at windsurfing (my passion) than I am now – although I have to say I’m still not that shabby! – a bit rough round the edges but can still bust a move or two!.

I  enjoy kitesurfing  surfing, SUP, kayaking, coasteering, swimming – I think you get the idea – Newquay’s ideal because I can do all these things and work at the same time. Professionally I’m a photographer specialising in interiors and product photography www. laytonbennett.co.uk . I’m a Coastguard Rescue Officer for HM Coastguard – a fulfilling volunteer position that helps to keep people safe by the sea.

I’m married to Dreya – she is an awesome kitesurfer and always up for a challenge.  Check out her ambassador profile, even I’m impressed.  I also have a dog Guss, he’s ace.

Job Title:
Photographer – Commercial – interiors and product mostly.  I photograph a lot of holiday homes on the coast.  And get to see some really stunning properties with awesome views.  I cover all of Cornwall and beyond.  I also have a photography studio in Newquay where I undertake my product photography including Married to the Sea.

My Beach BBQ Guests:

1. Dreya – my wife.

2. Brian Cox

3. Carl Sagan

4. Jean Luc Picard (what can I say I like the cosmos and stuff and also happen to be a Trekky)

5. Dave Hill , 6.Annie Leibovitz (photographers)

6. My mate Davo – just for giggles

-probably be a very boring BBQ – but I’d learn a lot!

Love of the Sea:
Clear clean blue water with wind ripples,  adventure playground, space and freedom.

Hate of The Sea:
Pollution, lazy ignorant people not taking their rubbish home.

What I would like more of:
Heat/ sunshine – I love the sea and its even better when the sun shines.
Also 3-4 ft waves, long wave period and cross off wind about 25kts – rarer than rocking horse shit and ideal for windsurfing.

What I would like less of:
Crowds – no one person in particular just lots of people at the same time
Grey mizzle rain– I hate grey mizzle rain – although some say the rain is warmer in Cornwall.

Favourite UK Location:
I currently like the Bothicks on Great Western Beach Newquay because my dog likes swimming there and it has a great view up the coast.  Also anywhere that has 3-4 ft waves, long wave period and cross off wind about 25kts.

Worldwide:
Tarifa Spain – just love it. I also like Big Bay Cape Town, Lancelin West Australia and Vassaliki Greece.

Tunes:
I’ll listen to anything – but if it doesn’t hit the spot I’ll turn it off.  If you asked me who my favourite band is I’d have to say Pink Floyd.

What I would take on a desert island trip:
Shorts, Sunglasses and Suncream – I know that’s three but hey.!
