After a recent short trip to Cornwall, I visited the historic fishing porn of Port Isaac. It is now famously the location for the popular ITV series called Doc Martin. It the TV series starring Martin Clunes, Port Isaac is renamed PortWenn. As a fan of the Doc Martin series, I was delighted to of been able to take my drone to Porn Isaac to take some aerial videos and photos of the famous slipway.
I was so happy with some of the photos I took with my DJI Mini 2 drone, that I decided to add some of them to my ETSY drone photography shop. I think they would look great in anybody’s home especially if they are Doc Martin fans or if they have have enjoyed a visit to Port Isaac in the past. My favourite photo is the one where I have managed to include a power boat coming into the port in between the harbour walls.
As an added bonus, I have also added an aerial photograph of the church used in Doc Martin where he marries Louisa Glasson, played by Caroline Catz. The church is called St Nonna’s church and is situated in the small Cornish village of Altarnun. I was only able to take a few aerial photos of St. Nonna’s church as it was very windy.
I hope to return to Port Isaac again one day to take more photos and videos. Maybe a night time shoot would be nice. It would be interesting to see how the harbour looks at night time with the village lights on.
The wife and I binge watched the entire box sex collection of the ITV Doc Martin Series. So when we headed to Cornwall for our 20th wedding anniversary, visiting the Doc Martin location of Port Isaac was a no brainer.
The wife was more than happy to allow me to bring the DJI Mini 2 drone along on our trip as she wanted me to get as many photos of our day in Port Isaac (renamed Portwenn in Doc Martin).
Arriving nice and early in Port Issac I was relieved to find that there is a large car park just outside Port Isaac. It was just a 20 minute walk from the car to the famous Port Isaac harbour slipway. Seeing all the familiar houses and shops from Doc Martin in real life was a treat.
So, after a walk around Port Isaac it was time to find some where suitable to launch the DJI Mini 2 from and grab some photos and video of the iconic fishing village made famous by Martin Clunes as Doc Martin.
It was a bit of a walk up to my chosen location. High on the cliffs was a great spot to take off from without having to fly the drone too far over the sea. I was aware that the sea breeze was fairly strong and there were plenty of sea birds flying around the harbour.
I managed to fly out into the middle of the harbour to get the shot I wanted and then gathered some video footage to add to my YouTube channel.
If it had been a calmer day, I would had like to have got closer to the Port Isaac slipway, but with the wind blowing away from me, I knew it would had been struggle getting the drone back to my through the strong wind.
