GARETH Gardner joined The Northern Daily Leader editorial team as a permanent photographer in May after working for us in a casual capacity.
Gareth has already provided The Leader's readers with colourful and emotive photographs which he has taken from all corners across the region during his time at the newspaper.
Gareth says his favourite part about the job is the variety of photos he takes on the job and not knowing where he'll be off to next.
He's chosen these photos for your viewing.
