Chris Hutchinson

Chris was born in West Ham in 1947,  took his first photograph on 5th January 1960 and joined Yateley Camera Club in 1985.  He went on the list of lecturers round about 1992 and on the judges’ list a year later.  

Newbury camera club has had the pleasure to welcome Chris nine times between 1993 and 2018, giving talks twice and judging club competitions on the other occasions.

Chris has had pictures accepted in quite a few salons but in general he says he has never got round to applying for distinctions.

Chris studied art at school and the social sciences as a mature student and this combination has given him a slightly different take on photography from that of some of his colleagues.

He started photographing steam railways as they disappeared from the landscape likewise the London Docks as they closed down.  Chris's main career was in transport but he was also qualified to take people mountaineering and so another branch of his photography was that of summer and winter landscapes.  Chris says he likes to get humour into his images.

In later life he started to photograph people underwater and has held several exhibitions of these images.  He has also sold and published some of them as well.

For a sample of  Chris's imagaes have a look on FLICKR – just put “yateleyart” into Google or click
