Our Everyday Action series was originally created to explore how we can each make small changes to our every day, that can make a big impact in the wider world. Everyday Action has taken on a whole new meaning for us, as we get used to a new routine of taking every day as it comes.
As his regular work take a pause, Isle of Wight Photographer Jay Haysey finds freedom in his own projects – exploring local coastlines and finding a way to help through creative action.
Photographer & Words by Jay Haysey | @jay_haysey
I am a photographer and filmmaker inspired by the ocean and adventure. My work usually consists of brand shoots on location but due to the lockdown I have not been able to travel for work and all the shoots have been postponed until a safer time.
The lockdown has allowed me time to expand my ocean photography collection with shots that are taken closer to home on the Isle of Wight. It has given me the time to think creatively and appreciate the natural beauty closer to home.
I feel very lucky to live on the Isle of Wight with so much open space, beautiful beaches and rugged coastline. I print all my work on the Hahnemuhle Bamboo paper which is made up of 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton, bringing environmental friendliness to my photography, which is very important to me. During this time I have decided to donate 50% of each print profit sales to the charity NHS Charities Together for their incredible work.
