I very much enjoy William Dalrymple's writing (you can read my review of From the Holy Mountain here), and I was pleased to learn that he is a photographer as well. He says, "Photography for me long preceded writing. In fact, it is in my blood." I think it was the opposite for me, writing then photography, but I do love both art forms. Writers who are photographers, writers who are runners -- they're kindred spirits. You can see more of his photographs here.
