I started taking photographs when my dad, himself a keen photographer, gave me a 127 Box Brownie when I was 9 or 10. But throughout the bulk of my life photography has been something that I did as well as something else - journalism, film-making, writing fiction. Now it's all I do, obsessively and desperately, and here are some pictures, usually made in the documentary tradition - although I did move that Newcastle Brown bottle - that I like a lot. We hope that you do, too.
Locations are many and varied - and do get in touch if you'd like more information about any of them - but they were mainly made in Scotland (especially Edinburgh), Newcastle and Tyneside, the Lake District, and around the English coast.
