I am an award-winning landscape and travel photographer, who was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne. I took my photograph at the age of 14, when my parents gave me a Kodak Instamatic for Christmas, and I have been taking photographs ever since.
My landscape photos from north east England have been used in publicity materials by local businesses, councils and tourism organisations, as well as by the Northumberland National Park Authority in its publicity and marketing materials. Many of these photos and thousands more are available to license through Alamy. Open edition prints of my photography (as well as other merchandise) can be bought through Pixels.com.
My photographic work has appeared in a number of national and regional magazines. I have also written and contributed to more than forty books about photography and photographic techniques, some of which have been translated into French, Spanish and Chinese. The books I have written have been published by Ammonite Press, Walking Books and Dorling Kindersley.
Exhibitions of my landscape photography are held around the region throughout the year. I also greatly enjoy communicating my enthusiasm for photography on my photography one-to-one workshops.
Away from my photographic career – though rarely far away from making photos – I now live on an exposed, north-facing hill, overlooking the town of Hexham and the picturesque Tyne Valley. I share this happy life with a wife, a cat, and a worryingly large number of tripods.
