Chris believes that we all see the world slightly differently. It is never his intention to mimic another photographer's shot, but to bring his own vision to bear to produce an individual and personal point of view. His particular way of working is to identify something within a scene that interests him, and to represent that element strongly in relation to its surroundings. When on location it is important to allow time for the creative process to take place, and let the subject speak to him. The interaction between him and the scene allows him to produce a personal response, and to record an image in such a way that it is visually appealing, simple, and reveals something of the feelings and emotions that he experienced when he fired the shutter.
Chris has been actively involved in club photography since 1979 and has gained an ARPS with traditional monochrome prints, an FRPS with digital prints, and serves on the Visual Art (A's & F's) Pictorial Panel, and the Licentiate panel. He is a busy national PAGB judge and popular lecturer, and has visited more than 200 different camera clubs and judged many regional, national and international exhibitions. He gained a DPAGB with colour transparencies, and an APAGB award for his services to photography. He has also gained awards in international exhibitions while earning his AFIAP and EFIAP distinctions. He has now retired from working as an air traffic controller, and is a member of Amersham Photographic Society.
