Roger Coulam was born in Lincolnshire in 1965, and educated in Yorkshire and Newcastle upon Tyne.
A self-taught photographer, he found the inspiration to start making pictures in North West Scotland in the 1990's.
In 2000 he visited the USA to photograph lightning and tornadoes, a journey that led to him becoming part of a Storm Chasing Team in the States for eight years and developing a reputation as a ground-breaking photographer.
He rapidly developed his photographic practice, with his images published worldwide. He has made several appearances on television and radio, whilst his portfolio has featured widely in national newspapers and in the photographic press.
He lives and works in Sunderland, England.
