A Fellow of the Society of Architectural Illustration (FSAI) Chris's architectural photography, like
the architecture itself, is portrayed within a specific urban or environmental context. The synergy
created between the respective architectural elements and the ambient context in which they are
experienced, coupled with Chris's attention to composition, lighting, colour, and tone is what
animates his photography.

Based in Japan, over recent years his photographs have often been printed in full colour on the front
covers of
Kansai Time Out  (KTO) magazine, West Japan's widely read and popular English
magazine. They have also been seen on the cover of  
Viewpoint SAI periodical, and in the Sankei
(click KTO Gallery and Publ'd Photos).

An SAI Fellow, council member, and the SAI rep for the Japan area Chris coordinates activities with the SAI's counterparts in Japan and
Korea: the Japan Architectural Renderers' Association (JARA) and the Korean Architectural
Perspectivists Association (KAPA). See links below.
