Chris Wright Photography in Rossendale
Since November 2016, I was made an Associate Level member of the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP)
North West Base
I am based in Rossendale, Lancashire (near Manchester), but I will go anywhere in or outside of the UK!
I have several photographic styles depending on what the subject matter is. As a wedding photographer, my style is more about documentary or reportage - keeping out of the way while observing and capturing unexpected moments. This also means that you get more interesting portraits! As a commercial photographer, sometimes I will do a fine art approach, or the generally functional, with a twist here and there, while bearing in mind the eventual use of the image - is the photo for a press ad? Will the image need blank areas for text? And so on.
(Only a bit!)
I have been a photographer of some sort for at least 15 years, but it was only as recent as 2011 when I decided that I wanted to take photography more seriously.
From 2003 I was a commercial photographer as part of the service by Wright Chalmers Design Communications Ltd, an advertising and design agency that I co-ran until 2009. Such was the success of my photography direct service, I decided to go up a gear and diversify into other photographic areas.
I tried an estate agent specific service concentrating on commercial photography for mansions, in 2010-2011, with interesting results and made some interesting friends. In 2011, however, I was asked to be a wedding photographer and shoot a client's wedding and despite my reservations, I was roped in! The results, while not perfect, were encouraging enough for me to know that I wanted to pursue and improve as a photographer, so I set about gaining experience with the wedding industry.
By 2012, I was well on the way to demonstrating a portfolio of natural, reportage wedding photography, with a distinctly humorous edge - hence the name Silent Assassin Photography. In March 2013, when the BIPP got wind of what I was doing, they awarded me with a Licentiate Qualification.
Since then my wedding photography increased, with increasing recognition and awards to match, culminating in the GOLD AWARD for Weddings Traditional at the BIPP North West Awards 2016.
Following an emotionally taxing and busy 2015, I decided to take a rest from being a commercial and wedding photographer for a while and divulge myself in my new interest of seabird wildlife photography. In 2016 I had gathered a hearty collection of work that used a similar approach to how I shoot weddings - looking for moments that were quirky and even ambiguous. Such was the success of this work, that the BIPP assigned a mentor to me, so I could apply for an Associateship. This was awarded in November 2016 and another new brand was born - The Puffin Man!
The Puffin Man concentrates on all things wildlife, in the form of high quality greetings cards, prints and textiles of my work. The range will be added to as and when I can!
As for photographer brand names, things were getting a bit clogged up and mistargeted as there were so many sides to my work and my commercial photographer work was increasing too. So in 2017 it was decided to ditch the name Silent Assassin Photography and simplify it to plain old Chris Wright Photography!
Chris Wright Photography now speaks for all aspects of my photos, except the wildlife!
I do have a dedicated wedding website, which is intended more as a private viewing area, at www.chriswrightweddings.co.uk
