This is a career highlight for me. My portrait of Jonathan Morgan, a volunteer lifesaver with the RNLI has been chosen as a winner of the Portrait of Britain award! There were over 13,000 entries to this photography competition, and the 100 winning images will be displayed in a public photography exhibition at the many JCDeceaux screens around the country.

My thanks to judges Simon Bainbridge at the British Journal of Photography, Parveen Narowalia at British Vogue, and Martin Usborne at Hoxton Mini Press, who are also publishing the forthcoming book.

I would also like to thank all the lifesavers and shore crew at RNLI Dungeness for continuing to support my pop-up portrait studio, and more importantly their undaunted work in saving lives at sea.
