Chris’s passion for Rural Australia became evident during expeditions as a teenager into the rugged and remote areas of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, hiking and living the adventure of one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in Australia.

He has since spent the last 25 years working and travelling throughout Australia photographing and mixing with businesses driven by passionate rural people. His empathy for rural lifestyles is shown in his photography and he has the ability to capture the spectacular moods of the Australian bush. Based in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia, Chris has travelled this vast country seeking Photographic opportunities.

Due to the tyranny of distances, his desire to maintain a personal approach to other business interests, and a family history in Aviation he became a Private Pilot. Having now clocked many hundreds of hours in the cockpit, Chris’s preferred method of travel throughout this vast country is by plane, allowing him to capture and reproduce images from a range of regions throughout Australia.

Special projects are Chris’s specialty, with current clients including Corporate Clients, Wineries, Charity organisations, Private landholders, and Tourism bodies.
