Originally from a large town in Cheshire, Colin moved to the Allen Valleys in rural Northumberland in 2005.  He immediately fell in love with the wild landscape: the fells, the windswept trees and the huge skies. He also has a fascination with the many abandoned buildings which pepper the landscape and the remains of the local area’s prosperous, leadmining past.

Historically, Colin had a passion for Landscape photography. However, more recently he has turned his eye to portraiture. As shown by his Home Exhibitions and his successful ongoing You, Me and Autism projects.
