Chris hails from St. Andrews; famed for its golf, university, biting winds and historical connections to the early days of photography where Hill and Adamson took many of their pioneering images. He studied in London and returned north, first to Glasgow then Edinburgh setting up as a commercial photographer in the mid 90’s and working from his studios in London and Edinburgh for a variety of blue chip companies. Chris’ work has taken him from the Seychelles to Greenland, North and South America, Asia, the Middle East and Continental Europe. He began shooting landscapes enjoying the freedom of large spaces but soon moved to portraiture and in 2009 took the idea of a ‘live’ portrait exhibition to the Edinburgh International Book Festival. He was a former Scottish chairman of the Association of Photographers and is one of the founding members of Retina – Scotland’s annual Festival of Photography. His book of Portraits of Authors, Between the Lines will be published in July 2015. Check out some of his photographs.
