  1. Really Great Work, Im a photography student and about to document Shoreham lifeboat station for my final university project, would you be able to offer any advice? Thank you

    • Excellent! Make sure you contact the station in good time. Make good use of the RNLI website and the station’s own site to find out the right person to email (usually the LOM or Cox’n). Then write to them describing concisely what you’d like to achieve. Bear in mind stations have lots of photographers who’d like to visit, so be prepared to follow it up with a phone call. I hope it goes well for you – let me know! Jack

  2. Jack,

    I saw your work on Countryfile and as a photographer who still shoots, develops and prints my own b&w stuff, I loved your work. So much depth to your shots and fantastic resolution from the LF camera. Do you use wet or dry plates?


    • Hi Paul, I’m making wet plates. You can read more about the Project here. Jack
