Chris Upton is a professional photographer based in Nottinghamshire who specialises in travel, landscape and social documentary photography.
Chris has received awards in national photographic competitions and has twice been commissioned to photograph in Thailand on behalf of the Tourism Authority of Thailand. His images are represented by several international stock agencies and clients have used them worldwide across many different sectors.
Chris’s ability to connect and communicate, passing on his knowledge, means that he is in great demand as a speaker and as a tutor on his workshops and tours in the UK and abroad.
“Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I have been fortunate to travel widely and it is an amazing experience to observe and photograph a variety of cultures, people and landscapes. I hope that through my photographs I can bring a little of this to the viewer and inspire others to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the world for themselves”
The question that Chris is most commonly asked is, “how do you see a picture?” Whilst people might be thinking about composition when asking this question, Chris thinks that there is actually much more to it than that. In his talk, he will share his learnings from over 30 years of photography and explain his 7-step plan to achieve better images. Packed with hints and tips, it will help anyone appraise where they are on their photographic journey and provide inspiration to go to the next level.
