About me
Christian is a Yorkshire-born photographer. He originally came to London 6 years ago for a BA in fashion photography at the London College of Fashion, but chose to drop out after 5 months to find his own way as a photographer. He has a varied body of work but is becoming best known for his intimate portraiture and fashion shoots. His work has been published in magazines such as I.D, Teeth, Rollacoaster and Wonderland and he has shot campaigns for clients such as Nike, Hi-tec, Vans, ASOS, and Soho House. Earlier this year, Christian had a portrait selected by the British Journal of Photography as a winner of Portrait of Britain 2019. The chosen image was shown on JCDeaux screens throughout the country in September. Outside of commercial projects, Christian contributes his skills to grassroots projects and local communities. For the second year running he has worked with the award-winning carnival dance organisation, Tropical Isles, documenting workshops in dance , design and costume-making that give local youth the chance to learn new skills. He recently exhibited a selection of imagery from his time with the group at the Rose Lipman building community art space in Haggerston. His latest project is with author and historian Colin Grant whose latest book, Homecoming, comprises of stories of people who migrated from the Carribean between the 1940's and 1960's. Over the last month Christian has been traveling across the UK taking portraits of some of those featured in the book with the end goal of creating an exhibition in 2020.
