The Shipping Forecast


The project is based around the 31 areas of the Shipping Forecast around the British Isles. Broadcast 4 times a day on local Coastguard and BBC Radio 4, it provides listeners with a simplified format to deliver information quick and precise.
From my initial research, I was led to realise that it wasn’t just the shipping and fishing industries who do use it.
Here is who I have photographed so far. There are many more subjects to find and photograph but each person I meet has a suggestion for the next.
