Trinity MAT Halifax
As an outstanding school, we have very high standards which have to be reflected in our photography. Chris not only takes the time to reflect this, but takes photography that captures our ethos and enthusiasm of our students – we know he can be absolutely trusted to deliver on the brief and provide stunning shots with great attention to detail, often on a tight schedule. We have tried other photographers in the past, although their work was good, we’d often find out of hundreds there would only be a handful we could actually use. Chris is very much about quality and getting photos right for the client and we always look forward to selecting our shots. Since our first booking, he has completed a number of days photography across a range of initiatives for our Multi-Academy Trust, including a children’s nursery, the academy’s 6th Form, and a work place based vocational college, and a sports shoot with a very specific vision. Chris’ talent as a photographer is reflected in the fact that despite a very different environment and diverse briefs, his work remains exceptional and his photos have ensured that our marketing materials look outstanding, and communicate who we are. As a photographer, Chris is at ease with getting the best from a group of small children with short attention spans, to teenagers and adults ,nothing is rushed and he keeps working until he has the shots he knows we as the client want. We have been delighted with his work, and look forward to continuing to work with Chris in the future.

Northern Racing College
Chris has been the Northern Racing College’s professional photographer for over 5 years. He has done a range of photo shoots from pony racing to specialist courses. He has therefore photographed youngsters from the age of 9 to older students 20+. He is always extremely professional and with his great sense of humour he puts people at ease when they are not used to being in front of the camera. Horses are not easy to photograph well but Chris has a natural eye and has taken many fabulous photos some of which we use on our website and prospectus. We are looking forward to Chris coming in to do a shoot in spring time. I have and would always highly recommend Chris to anyone seeking professional photos which stand out from the crowd.

Hall Cross Academy
Chris worked with our students to produce the images for our Sixth Form prospectus. His expertise and experience were immediately apparent and of huge benefit, both in terms of his advice in choosing locations and his ability to get the best our of our students. Chris is a perfectionist, and he takes the time necessary to capture images of the highest quality. His post production editing is outstanding, and his level of service and professionalism throughout the whole process were equally impressive. We will certainly be asking Chris back to Hall Cross in the future.
