He said: ‘I live on Hayling Island and love it! Having grown up here, it's instilled a love for the sea and the outdoors which I now base my photography, and life, around! Photography is a great motivator for me to explore and discover new places but I've also spent a lot of time capturing Hayling Island's beautiful but sometimes overlooked landscapes. After much encouragement from family and friends, I released a series of prints called HI Life - which is a collection of my favourite images showing Hayling Island.’
