Chris has been making images since he was 8 years old starting with a box brownie, a gift from his parents. Today he travels with excess luggage! Irrespective of his equipment he has trained his eye to see differently and to attempt to capture unusual moments, often fleetingly. His training as a veterinarian has allowed him to understand animal behaviour and sometimes predict what is about to happen, and if ready, to capture it. Beyond that, his passion is about following the wonder and marvel at the immaculate presentation of animals, especially birds. The amazing array of colours caught in special lighting, the shapes and form of the landscape and the devoted behaviour of animals towards their offspring. He has travelled widely and the images he has chosen will hopefully reflect the diversity of life on this planet. It is through his art he hopes viewers will find hope and appreciation in a troubled world.
