The 23-year-old, who works at the Co-Operative in Wymondham, said finding something unusual to capture each day proved tricky.

'Finding different subjects and different areas has been hard - you don't want to see one of my dog every day,' he added.

The end result is a range of stunning landscapes of the region and fascinating portraits - with a few shots of dog Alfie thrown in for good measure.

Mr Morgan, who moved to Norfolk six years ago from Hertfordshire, will pick 14 of his images to display at the Norwich Playhouse from August 1 to August 31.

The event - which has been sponsored by City College Norwich - comes after a year of helping with fund-raising events for the Big C.

'One of my closest friends lost his mum last year to cancer and that inspired me to do it. It's affected so many people, everyone knows someone who has been touched,' he said.
