About Chris

My interest in photography began with an interest in wildlife and a desire to 'capture' the Butterflies and Dragonflies I was seeing. Visiting inspiring and beautiful locations looking for wildlife then led to an interest in Landscape photography.


Are you looking to develop your Landscape Photography skills?

I am pleased to offer landscape photography courses including 121 and small group tuition and also 3 hour taster sessions (max attendees 10) for people who would like an introduction to Landscape Photography.

Tuition and workshops are tailored to suit your experience and requirements. My aim is that you enjoy the day with the emphasis on trying out the things you’ve learned in inspiring locations such as the New Forest in Hampshire or the Jurassic Coast in Dorset.
