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.
I am very grateful to judges Simon Bainbridge at the British Journal of Photography,
Parveen Narowalia at British Vogue, and Martin Usborne at Hoxton Mini Press who are
publishing the accompanying book.

I recently interviewed Jon and he told me his most proud moment was when together
with the crew he helped save the lives of two professional yachtsman whose vessel
had failed in gale-force winds. I asked Jonathan about his motivation and he said
"I try to help people, and if I got into trouble at sea, I would want to know there
would be someone there for me.."

Many thanks to Jon and the volunteer crew at RNLI Dungeness.
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea.
