COUNTRY LIVING

The Lifeboat Chronicles, July 2021


What a treat to be offered so much space in the July issue of Country Living magazine. A wide selection of photographs are featured with a story behind each one — a very gentle layout with plenty of space to breathe.

I love the title of the piece too: The Lifeboat Chronicles.

Now on a magazine shelf near you!


THE NORTHERN GUIDE TO HAPPINESS

20th April 2021


It was great fun speaking with Alex Henry about the things that make me happy or, rather, keep me on course for achieving my goal of level contentment.

We talk about family, community, happenstance, social media, kayaking and, of course, The Lifeboat Station Project and the work of the RNLI:

LAUNCH! CINEMA TOUR

A film celebrating RNLI communities across Scotland

Autumn and Winter 2021


Seventeen portraits and two audio recordings from the project have been incorporated into Launch!, a cinema release of archive film and video celebrating RNLI communities across Scotland.

Directed by Shona Thomson in a co-production with Screen Argyll, the 44 minute film is a wondrous and deeply moving experience. As you can imagine, I’m so proud that my work is seen as a fitting way to join the dots between the present and the past.

Launch! premiered at Mareel in Lerwick, Shetland on 20th June 2021 [pictured above] and it’s now touring cinemas across Scotland throughout the Autumn and Winter of 2021.

Cinemas screening the film are collaborating with local RNLI stations to celebrate the important work of their volunteers. Each event is different so look out for special extras like additional films of your local lifeboat, or an in-person discussion afterwards with RNLI crew, or a pre-recorded blether with the folk involved in making the film.

Take a look at the film’s dedicated website for full details of the upcoming cinema tour:

I’ve been a huge fan of what3words since discovering it in 2019, particularly because it ties in with The Lifeboat Station Project on so many levels. As an ambassador flying the flag for what3words, we’ve now collaborated by fitting new decals to Neena (my mobile photographic darkroom) in recognition of our affiliation.

To be clear, no money is involved — just belief, passion and respect for our mutual endeavours.

If you’ve yet to discover what3words, it’s a simple way to describe and talk about location. It’s being embraced by all kinds of emergency services, organisations and individuals the world over.

Leah Hunter from Whitby RNLI lifeboat station featured on the front cover of The Yorkshire Post Magazine as part of a piece about The Lifeboat Station Project.

The original glass plate was also selected to be part of the Great Exhibition of the North in 2018 in Newcastle upon Tyne’s Great North Museum, so this portrait has certainly enjoyed some prestigious exposure since making it in 2017!

Town and Country section, 6th January 2021


“It is even more surprising that it’s still the highest-resolution photographic process ever invented. You can see it in the images. The stresses of working on a lifeboat—the wind and the waves and the salt and the cold—can be seen in the cracks and marks on the boats and their crew.” — James Fisher
