  North East England - News Article
One of North East England's newest landscape photographers,  Mike McFarlane, is to exhibit at Newcastle's Biscuit Factory later this year.
Having grown up in the North East, Mike has spent most of his working life elsewhere in the UK.  A career change from mechanical engineering and a move back to North East England, allowed him to concentrate on his passion for the landscapes, architecture and shapes of the region through photography.
And, keen to show off the beauty of North East England to others, he will be approaching major galleries outside the region to show his photography of the region to people across the UK.
