Luke said: “I like the peace and quiet you get taking photos.

“Photographing nature is so peaceful. I like taking pictures of animals too – you can get some funny pictures of them.

“I think the angle and colour of things help make a good photograph.

“My favourite subject at school is art, and I like drawing.
