SeaPeople Project (3) RNLI Sheerness, Kent

Back to some portraits for a change…

Quite early on in the SeaPeople Project, I visited the RNLI base at Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey where I photographed a number of the volunteers.  They are a great bunch of guys and I had a fantastic time shooting them.  They also treated me to a very speedy spin in their Trent Class lifeboat, which was somewhat quicker than the little 8m yacht I sailed at the time. (See their site for more info:  http://www.sheernesslifeboats.org.uk/lifeboats.htm)

The first portrait is Stuart Smith, a crew member aboard “George and Ivy Swanson”
