David Taylor is a British award-winning landscape and travel photographer, who was born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne and now lives in the ancient market town of Hexham, Northumberland. He took his first photograph at the age of 14 when his parents gave him a Kodak Instamatic for Christmas, and he has been taking photographs ever since.
His landscape photos have been used in publicity materials by local businesses, councils and tourism organisations, such as the Northumberland National Park Authority. He has also supplied images and articles to both regional and national magazines including Living North, Countryfile, Black & White Photography and Outdoor Photography.
Since 2009 David has written over thirty-five photography books, for Ammonite Press, the publishing arm of the Guild of Master Craftsmen, as well as Dorling Kindersley. This includes ‘Expanded Guides’ for Canon EOS and Sony cameras, as well as books covering more general photographic subjects. Some of the books David has written have been translated into French, Spanish and Chinese.
David also regularly runs small-group and one-to-one photography workshops in the northeast of England.
