Lewis is 20 years old and aspiring young photographer who has spent the past two years building a portfolio, developing an online presence and building up contacts in the local arts and business community. He’s also involved with *Soft Touch Arts in Leicester.

To progress further in the world of photography, Lewis is under no illusions that this will also require good quality equipment including a DSLR camera.

Lewis said: ‘The Inspire Awards grant means the world to me. I’m at a vital stage in my career where I’m trying to fulfill my potential as a quality and professional photographer. The award is the difference between riding the momentum that I have and being pushed further along my career path or being held back for another year or so.’

Rhonda Olsen, JHMT Inspire Awards, said: Lewis is an amazing young talent and the JHMT Inspire Award is to support him in his future ambition of becoming a professional photographer.
