Chris Nowell

Chris Nowell served in the King's Royal Hussars before being wounded while serving in Afghanistan in 2007. Evacuated back to the UK with severe life changing head injuries, Chris woke up at Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Hospital after multiple operations, completely blind.  As the swelling subsided, some limited sight returned, but Chris has been left registered blind and needed to learn to read and write all over again. As part of his rehabilitation, supported by Blind Veterans UK, Chris picked up his first camera and learnt photography, and can now be found exploring the Peak District, creating a wealth of stunning landscape photography, supported by a range of friends and fellow photographers, with a following of over 8,000 followers on Facebook.
