“I came home from college and mum was like, ‘I’ve got some pretty big news’.
I just stood there in silence, I was shocked.”
Josef Fitzgerald-Patrick is still pinching himself after being named Young Landscape Photographer of the Year 2018.
The 18-year-old’s winning entry is a picture of his friend Russ riding a bike at sunset near where he lives in Cornwall.
“I knew I had had quite a few images shortlisted but I still couldn’t believe it,” he says.
Josef, who is studying for a diploma in photography, will now have his winning images published in a book alongside other amateur and professional photographers in the UK.
