Q&A WITH JACK HOPKINS - INTERVIEw
North Coast Asylum is so excited to be working with Jack Hopkins. Jack was actually the first photographer we ever approached when starting this creative journey. His imagery portrays aesthetics skills that many beyond his years still aspire to. We caught up with Jack at his home of Godrevy, Cornwall to delve deeper.
NCA: JACK YOU'RE 19 WITH ALREADY DISTINCTIVE STYLE THAT REMAINS CONSISTENT THROUGHOUT YOUR WORK. HOW DID YOU ORIGINALLY GET INTO PHOTOGRAPHY & WHAT INSPIRED THIS STYLE?
JH: There wasn't an exact point I got into photography but for some reason I have always seemed to have an interest in it. It wasn't until a few years ago that I actually started taking photos as a hobby. The point that really kick started me as a photographer and really got me into photography was when I got onto Instagram. I began to follow lot's of photographers on Instagram and seeing the work these photographers where putting out really started to inspire and motivate me to follow this as a career rather than just a hobby.
My style is something that has developed over time, it was almost subconscious and the photographs I was taken just seemed to lend themselves to my editing style. However my style is always changing and developing from the way I am composing my photographs to the way I am editing them, there will always be subtle changes within my style as I am always looking to improve on the last photograph I took.
NCA: WHEN EXPLORING THE COAST WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIALS YOU TAKE WITH YOU?

NCA: WHERE’S NEXT ON THE BUCKET LIST?
There are so many places I want to shoot all over the world and there isn't a place in particular I want it to be next, If I had to chose the top place on my list to go and shoot though, it would be Canada followed closely by South Africa and New Zealand.
