About me:
Hi I’m Chris, welcome to my profile page.
I Started as photo assistant at a studio in Chelsea/ London in 1970 I set up my own studio in London shooting Ad campaigns on large format & began to develop my distinct style of lighting & composition. My work has evolved from studio to shooting mainly on location overseas for Press Campaigns & Billboards for clients including alcohol, vehicles & swimwear.
I also shot Calendars for International companies such as Heineken & BMW as well as Glamour Calendars and became known as the “Calendar King”. Also gained recognition in the industry with awards for Photography and also my Calendar work.
My client list includes work for major international Advertising Agencies: Saatchi & Saatchi, McCanns, Leo Burnett, DMB&B and others. It was around this time that I began to receive requests to direct TV commercials.

I joined Sierra Production Company in London as a film director & D.P. shooting commercials for Black & White Whisky, Ford and Hair & Beauty products.
In 1985 I published my first book on photography containing a portfolio & personal images, in association with ZOOM Magazine in Paris/France. OLYMPUS Cameras also became my sponsor to promote their cameras & lenses. I also contribute regularly to the media with articles on creative Imagery. my images appear on magazine covers & bookstands worldwide.
