“Briefly I’d describe myself as an enthusiastic amateur who dabbles in a number of photography genres – whether that be armed with my 100-500mm wildlife lens or a macro lens for butterflies, dragonflies and insects, plus the occasional landscape shoot.

On this occasion, an impromptu walk along Whitby pier, unusually I didn’t have my camera. The Turnstones were walking along the harbour wall at eye level, literally within touching distance and totally unphased by me resting my elbows with the phone on the wall. I switched the phone into portrait mode, with studio lighting effect added, so this is virtually straight out of camera!”
