Roger Coulam was born in Lincolnshire in 1965.

After secondary education in Yorkshire he studied BSc(Hons) Environmental Science at Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic. He began work as a freelance photographer in 1998 and turned professional in 2003.

During eight years from 2000-2007 he developed a worldwide reputation as a ground-breaking photographer of severe weather, rapidly developing his photographic business, and making several appearances on television and radio.

In 2008, after re-evaluating the direction of his image making, he made a decision to concentrate on his creative practice.

Much of his imagery has been made using a hybrid analogue / digital workflow, often without a camera or lens. His work also includes aspects of printmaking and book making.

During 2010 Roger underwent surgery on his hand forcing him to re-learn how to hold and use his cameras again.

"My images reflect my own interests and concerns about the world, and also my place within it. I attempt to try and understand my experiences and responses by making pictures, to bring order, to look, to explore and challenge.”

He lives and works in Sunderland, England.
