    Instameets are events happening globally where Instagrammers meet each other, share photography advice and create content together, we thought it was high time Cornwall joined the movement.

    While following other photographers in your area is a good source of inspiration, meeting them in person and shooting alongside them is even better. So on the 11th December a group of like-minded people came together in Newquay and set off to walk 5 miles of coastline in the name of the first #mackieinstameet.

    We met at Mackie Studio and began walking alongside the Gannel which separates Crantock and Pentire. As roughly forty strangers from all walks of life made their way onto Pentire headland we were greeted with not only incredible weather but also thumping offshore waves. Everyone that attended had a passion for photography and Cornwall wether it be amateur or pro which meant we all had a lot in common.

    The general vibe of the day was relaxed and upbeat with a free-form style of shooting that allowed everyone to capture images openly, summed up perfectly by a scattering of photographers taking over Pentire Headland.

    We took some of our final shots whilst watching the sun setting on the iconic Fistral beach, then on a high we made our way back to the studio for mulled wine, mince pies and shared conversations!

    What's an Instameet?

    An InstaMeet is a group of Instagrammers meeting up to take photos and videos together. That's it! An InstaMeet can happen anywhere and be any size. They're a great opportunity to share tips and tricks with other community members in your area, and an excuse to get out and explore someplace new!

    How do I join?

    All you need to do is show up! If you have any questions, simply leave a comment on the photo announcing the InstaMeet.

    What do I need?

    An Instagram account, your phone/camera and a desire to connect and explore with other Instagrammers.
