He photographed some of the most important events of a generation, capturing iconic images used by the Scottish press.

He died in hospital yesterday.

During his time at the Evening Times, where he worked for about 20 years until 2000, he photographed famous faces and historical moments, including Nelson Mandela's visit to the city in 1993, actor and comedian Rikki Fulton and gangster Arthur Thompson.

Former colleagues praised Brian as a great man and a skilled professional.

Brian, from Burnside, Cambuslang, was well known among the local press in Lanarkshire, including the Wishaw Press, where he worked for years.

Most recently he had been working for the Rutherglen Reformer, but had also worked for the Daily Mail in the 1970s before moving to the Evening Times in the 1980s.

A father of three, Brian was described as a family man who doted on his wife Annette, their children and five grandchildren.

Friend and freelance photographer Lewis Segal, 64, had known Brian for 30 years.

He said: "He was like a brother to me. He was a great guy, a wonderful person.

"He was a great photo­grapher. We used to go out for lunch every day and have tremendous banter. It was fantastic to have him as a colleague and a friend."

Evening Times' editor Tony Carlin said: "Not only was Brian a first class photographer, he was also a great friend and colleague to many of us.

"He will be sadly missed by everyone who had the privilege of working with him, and our thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time."
