Dizzee Rascal has revealed he's Bonkers for photography.

The Brit-winning rapper, who is launching and judging Bing.com's Your Britain photography competition, said he can be snap happy when he heads behind the camera.

"I like taking pictures anywhere I am across the world. When I started travelling around 2002, I took pictures, because there were crazy things I was seeing that I'd never seen before, and I've never really stopped, I'm always taking pictures," he said.

Dizzee - whose real name is Dylan Mills - has taken photos of his favourite spots around the country, including the Olympic Stadium in Stratford, Yorkshire Sculpture Park and a carp lake in Dorking, where he goes fishing. These are to be showcased each day on the Bing.com homepage.

"It's a nice thing to do, considering I'm going to be inspiring other people to take photos, to get the best pictures that represent Britain in the most beautiful way," he said.

The 25-year-old has spent quite a bit on his hobby.

"I've got loads of different cameras - always trying to get the new one. I bought a Canon, it was the latest one but I left it in America, so I have to get a new one," he continued.
