  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

  8. Jack visited us at RNLI Kessock recently and it was a truly magical amd inspiring experience. So much dedication and passion. Thank you.

  9. Just saw your exhibition in Aberystwyth – at the National Library: the most interesting photographic exhibition I have ever seen, a wonderful project that will have lasting impression on all visitors and provide an historically important collection of images.

    • Gosh. Thank you very much for visiting the exhibition and for your kind assessment of my work. Very glad you enjoyed it so much. Best wishes, Jack

  10. Met you today at Whitstable, Kent. Didn’t know you were there! Was visiting myself from Manchester on a coach trip. Amazing how you do it and produce such good work. All the best.

  11. Great to meet you in Walmer yesterday Jack. Thanks for the time you gave to us all at the station explaining the process and showing the final results. Everyone was blown away with the photos. Good luck with the rest of the project. You’re on the downhill stretch now!

    • Thank you, Chris. It was wonderful to meet you all and such a beautiful station too.

  12. Jack, the memories are fixed! Being able to help with the process really has made a difference. The smells of the process reminded me of the school darkroom all those years ago. Each plate has frozen in time not just an image but the whole event – people, weather, smells, movement, the lot. Accompanied by the Spitfire barrel rolling overhead, quite fantastic!

    • You’ve described the experience so well, Jon. I’m so pleased to hear the impact my visit has made on you and the rest of the crew at Dover! Very best wishes, Jack
