Born in June 1985 in Grimsby in the North of England, Chris is a well-respected fashion photographer living in London.
Before studying photography at University of Lancashire, a college with a reputation for technical ability and solid links to the commercial industry, he gained experience as a photographic technician and photography teacher. He now contributes to such publications and clients as The Sunday Times Style magazine, Betty Jackson and Central Saint Martins.
Inspiration comes from the works of Miles Aldridge, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, among others.
Speaking about his work, Chris explains
“I have always endeavoured to create a reality of my own within my images. I wish to construct a place in which I photograph. Sometimes the actual reality of a place I find is fantastic enough. Having read a number of Ballard Novels it’s hard for it not to have affected my vision. If I could travel to Vermilion Sands it’s all I would photograph!”
In 2010 Chris co-founded Kingsland Road Studio www.kingslandroadstudio.com in the hope of establishing a self-supporting space that other photographers, artists and creatives could use without paying the earth for the privilege. The studio has been used by such clients as T4, Marie Claire and Dazed & Confused. “Its been great to see the space change and be used by a variety of clients, as well as shooting my own work there”.
