As a relative latecomer to the world of photography, Chris’ eyes were initially opened to the captivating world of photography whilst honeymooning in Japan, before later stumbling into landscape photography in 2012 – a genre he instantly fell in love with appreciating not only its beauty, drama and variety but the many challenges it presents. Chris’ initial passion for capturing wild and rugged seascapes was driven from a lifetime living just a stone’s throw from Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coastline but over recent years, this yearning for raging storm seas has been contrasted and balanced by the quiet calling of Dorset’s hidden woodlands.
Specialising in atmospheric images of the South West’s ever-changing coastline and intimate treescape scenes of mother nature at her finest, combining floral displays, spectacular conditions and grand woodlands, Chris’ unique imagery was recognised in 2020, winning the UK Landscape Photographer of the Year award and placing runner-up in the Wildflowers category of the International Garden Photographer of the Year.
Having arrived too late for the film era, Chris has always shot digitally and appreciates the flexibility and opportunities it presents. Trusty Nikon DSLR in hand, there is equal enjoyment gained from, and importance placed on all stages of the photography journey from scouting, visualization and image capture through to post-processing, an element Chris believes is often key in realising his vision.
