Hi I’m Christopher, and I love all styles of photography. My particular passion is Fine Art, no matter what the photograph, the artist in me shines through. Having completed my degree in Fine Art, lighting, textures, form and composition are everything to me. I have an eye for seeing detail in the strangest things and enjoy finding alternative perspectives and less conventional framing which makes my photography unique.

I use a number of techniques to process and develop the image, to ensure I get the perfect final render. In my eyes digital cameras capture a negative, just like film, I treat every photograph individually to optimise the best results for every selected print.

As mentioned above I graduated in Fine Arts from Coventry University in 2003, after spending a little time travelling the world I started my working life in London processing film and developing other people’s photographs. I left London in 2005 to move back to my home town of Birmingham. I was lucky enough to live in an old Victorian house which was filled with history and gave me a lust for everything vintage I spent my time well documenting everything, creating a quirky portfolio of knick knacks and family heirlooms.

I’m always happy to take on a challenge, and very good at challenging myself to new projects to push the boundaries of my photography, in turn increasing my technical and creative skills.

Professionally I use Canon cameras with a variation of lenses suited to the particular setting I find myself in.. Recreationally, I also enjoy shooting with 35mm Black and White film, and use either a fully manual Olympus OM-1 or a Canon EOS 1 depending on my mood. I think it’s important to understand the fundamental basics and history of photography, as well as keeping up with the latest tech, and there is nothing quite like developing a film in my kitchen!
