Loch Ness Lifeboat volunteers photographed Victorian style
The Lifeboat Station Project ticks off station 103 at Loch Ness - only another 135 to go!
The Loch Ness volunteers were proud to become part of this amazing undertaking and to have the privilege of witnessing the developing process as the image appears, as if by magic, on the glass plate in Jacks mobile darkroom.
Jack Lowe started photographing for his project in January 2015 and hopes to have it complete by 2020. Loch Ness Lifeboat Station was number 103 on his tour of 238 stations to visit. The Lifeboat Station Project is 'About the lifeboat volunteers, for the Lifeboat volunteers' and Jack has certainly engaged with the RNLI crews wherever he has visited. He now continues to the North East and is looking forward to reaching his half-way mark later this summer.

Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
