Chris is based in London and works internationally as a photographer and director.
Born in Quebec to an Irish seafarer, storytelling is in his blood. He started designing his own comic books at a young age – his first taste of narrative and composition – before falling in love with photography and the movies. Chris worked in the Italian and Irish film industries as an assistant editor and director and then went on to work internationally as a commercials director with such agencies as Lowe, TBWA, BBDO, Leo Burnett, Young and Rubicam, Saatchi and Saatchi and many others.
His photography work has won him many awards and publication in international journals. With a passion for design, he shoots interiors for commercial clients ranging from the residential to the travel and hospitality sectors. His personal work capturing ancient traditions around the world has resulted in several exhibitions and the publication of two coffee table books.
Chris’ philosophy is to establish a strong connection with his clients so that he can apply his unique eye to telling their story whilst adding artistic and commercial value.
