Local photographer Fraser Adams has nurtured his passion for photography since the age of 10. “I loved seeing my Grandad’s film cameras,” he says. “Although he didn’t take photos professionally, he always seemed to have a camera to hand.” 

A decade later and Fraser has racked up over 15k followers on his Instagram feed, thanks largely to his ability to create a beautiful take on everything he photographs.

“I love strolling around in search of quaint coffee shops, little alleyways and hidden gems,” he says. “Bath itself is super touristy, so I try and avoid the crowds.” His love of photography has taken him across the globe, but where’s next? “Copenhagen is top of my list. Hopefully, towards the end of the year, I’ll have time to visit.”

CAPTURE THE MOMENT

  • Lighting is key  no amount of filtering will rescue a poorly lit photo
  • Keep shooting  you can always delete the photos you don’t like
  • Different angles  make the ordinary look exciting by shooting from a different perspective
  • Filtering  experiment with the editing tools and filters, but be consistent
  • Practice  it makes perfect they say. Have fun doing it!

I’d say the Cornish Bakery has the best pasties in Bath, though I’m more of a ham
and cheese croissant fan.

Cascara is already a tour de force on the Bath coffee scene. As well as great coffee, they play the best music.

08 North Parade Buildings

This is my favourite street in Bath – the light captures it perfectly on a sunny day. It’s also quiet and hidden away.
