Seen yourself being photographed on the water? You could be on www.boatphotos.co.uk

Owners who want action shots of their pride and joy are in luck.

New firm BoatPhotos.co.uk operates from a motorboat on the south coast, taking photos of passing craft, which are then uploaded onto the website within 24 hours.

Digital images or prints can be ordered online, starting at £12 for an A5 print. They can also supply a hi-res digital file on CD, in both PC and Mac format.

There are already more than 3,000 photos on the site, with an expected 250 more added on busy days during the summer.

The firm has been set up by motorboater Tony Toller, who says: “I was a bit apprehensive that some people might feel we were intruding on their privacy, but we have not had a single complaint.
“In fact many owners have expressed their delight at being able to obtain a picture of themselves on their boat – something which is otherwise very hard to arrange.”

Boat owners who see themselves being photographed can simply log on to www.boatphotos.co.uk and then order prints or a hi-res digital file as they wish.

The firm also cover major events such as the Brixham Trawler Race and Tall Ships Race.
