About me


Hello, I’m Chris and I’m a part-time photographer based in Sutton on Derwent, York.


What do I mean by part-time? I sometimes run with the tag-line 'Civil servant by day, photographer by evenings and weekends', which is shorthand for saying I don't take photos to pay the bills, but because it's my passion. It's what I do when I get any spare time, I think I'm OK at it, and if I can build my portfolio and give you some great photos then hopefully we're both happy.


I’m very versatile and varied in what I do, always willing to try new things, rather than restricting myself to one particular subject or style. Lately I've been doing a lot of sports, event and promotional photography, but I have also done portraits, commercial and Photoshop work. I take a very relaxed, informal approach, which means I can be flexible to meet your needs.


I typically work in and around the villages near where I live - Elvington, Dunnington, Wheldrake, Wilberfoss and Stamford Bridge - but am happy to go anywhere in the York and Pocklington areas. I’m also happy to travel further afield - Leeds, Hull etc - for a bit of petrol money.


If you are looking for something a little less formal, and a little more personal, then please get in touch email:
