About Simon Fraser

Simon Fraser is a professional photographer specialising in science, nature and the environment. He started photographing climbs and travels around the world, especially the Himalayas, during the 1970s, and spent two years working in Antarctica, as a mountain safety guide with the British Antarctic Survey 1981-84. For many years his work has been represented by Science Photo Library, an independent stock agency which specialises in distributing the very best scientific images and footage, and his images have been published in many countries worldwide. Since 2005 he has produced cards, prints and calendars of Northumerland and beyond.

Simon is the author of ‘Xtreme Sports Photography’ (2004). He was commissioned to photograph ‘Gardens of Northumberland and the Borders’ in 2006, and his work on climate change was part of an award winning National Trust exhibition at Hoopers Gallery in London in 2007. He had a solo exhibition ‘Earth, Light and Time’ with the National Trust in 2009, and in 2010 he participated in a  major exhibition of the Northumberland National Park at the Biscuit Factory, Newcastle upon Tyne, and continues to exhibit there regularly.

Simon lives in the North Tyne valley in the heart of Northumberland National Park, and enjoys beekeeping, organic gardening and mountaineering.

Simon provided most of the external photography for our new website.  His photography is exceptional, and he is not only highly professional but a delight to work with.  Simon’s advice, as well as his photography, transformed our website and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
