Welcome to my world,
Tails of Wales Dog Photography
Hi, I'm Chris - a guy who takes photos. I live my life making, creating and capturing beautiful photographs for the people who want those magical images in their life.
I studied photography in school, then college, and worked as a press photographer whilst finishing my photography A Level in college. My photography jobs have included medical photography, cruise ship photography, press, celebrity, fashion, wedding, family, equine and also worked in a professional printing and mounting laboratory. I've learnt photography using film cameras, there was no digital in my day, the photo had to be right when you pressed the button.
My photography has taken me around the world, and have been lucky to photograph celebrities along the way. Robbie Williams, Gloria Hunniford, Ruby Wax, James Coburn and Edward Woodward to name just a few.
When I'm not taking photos you'll find me scouring beaches for driftwood to combine with my photography. A natural resource,
re-purposed into one off bespoke personalised works of art, combining the rustic look of nature with stunning photography.
I do have chill out days with my kids + family, going on mini adventures, enjoying life, making memories with my photography to treasure and look back on in years to come.
In the last 5 years I have taken on a new adventure...........Dogs, Horses and any other animal with a tail! They say "Never work with children + animals" - well, I do both!!!
Dogs, Horses and with kids are amazing to photograph, capturing their attitude and character, whilst also being gentle and adorable. For the dog or horse in your life, your true best friend, book the experience of a photoshoot by me. You will get fine art imagery hanging on your wall. It'll make you smile every time you look at it.
I am proud to announce that in November of 2017 I became a member of a select group of photographers within the UK, The Xperience Group, a group of photographers who dedicate themselves to creating images that will bring smiles across generations, helping to give you memories that are made to last a lifetime and beyond.
In 2019 I have won two National Dog Photography Competitions, competing against some of the best dog photographers in the country. This is a huge achievement, one that I am immensely proud of, knowing that my photography is among the best in the U.K.
