Plus, internationally acclaimed photographer Steve McCurry has praised some of her photos on Instagram.

Eighteen-year-old Jasmine is studying for the Level 3/4 Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Nottingham College. She took a series of photos covering the recent Storm Dennis, and one was featured on a double page in The Guardian, plus she got some included on Lincolnshire Live and the Grantham Journal.

She has also received an offer for a documentary photography degree at University of the Arts London (London College of Communication). 

We spoke to Jasmine about her photography.

My flood images on Dennis the storm were taken in Sedgebrook, Lincolnshire, showing the extent of the flooding and the damage to both wildlife and crops. I couldn’t imagine the amount of worry and stress farmers would have, even houses were flooded.

Jasmine told us that she woke up in the morning to the sound of rain and realised how much rain had fallen, then decided to go out and see what she could see.

I grabbed my camera, left the house with no wellies or umbrella and captured as many effective images as possible, with my stepdad driving me to different places that were most affected. 

 — Jasmine

Jasmine has a tip for anyone wanting to have a go at documenting events:

The thing is you do not have to be a documentary photographer to document what’s going on around you, be your own photographer! 

 — Jasmine

You can see more of Jasmine’s images on her photography Instagram page, including the posts commented on by Steve McCurry, such as this tribute to his famous work Afghan Girl.
