Richard Baynes

I am a journalist based in Glasgow in Scotland, which is currently part of the UK. I have a wide range of skills from sub-editing to live radio and sound-rich audio packages, and can take a photo if needed. I specialise in Scottish environmental issues, land management, tourism, outdoor activities and sports, but my work as a producer and editor also takes me into politics, local government, planning - every sort of story. I do work for outlets ranging from the relatively small Scottish Nationalist press to the BBC to the Daily Mail.
I am British but not a Scot and can take a broader outsider's view of the place while being very familiar with the country, its culture its politics and its geography.
