About Brigid Benson

It must be something to do with unforgettable childhood holidays touring the remote Scottish Highlands in a jam-packed camper van that fired Brigid Benson's fascination with the countryside. Whatever the spark, the intriguing character of places and people in the country continues to inspire her writing. Craig Easton feels privileged that his work takes him to photograph all over the world. Wherever he goes, the landscape and weather inspire him to show not just what a place looks like, but what it feels like. When he's taking time out, chances are you'll find him with his camera in the west of Scotland or in the east playing golf badly.show more
