10-year-old Caitlin Dormer, who attends Bassetts Farm Primary School in Exmouth, talks about her love of photography.

"My interest in the art started through watching my dad take his amazing photos. I have always loved having a go with my mum's and my dad's cameras, so they decided to get me my very own and since then I have really started to get into photography.

"I like the idea of capturing beautiful sights and being able to look back through them, remembering the memory of that day. I enjoy taking photos of the beauty we have here in Exmouth and going along to community events to photograph people involved, asking them to strike a pose and capturing the fun of the day.

"I like sharing my pictures with the Journal and seeing them printed in the paper; it makes me feel very proud as I'm only 10.
