Bio - Chris-Parkes

Based in Shrewsbury with my amazing family, wife Karen, daughter Isabella and our new arrival Megan, we don't very often get much quiet time.

For me the photographer's job is to realise the day is about you, it needs to be focused on your needs and wants and above all relaxed. 

I've been interested in photography since I was a small child. I remember at the age of 11 leaning over a pond in France to get a better angle for a picture, I also remember pulling myself and a very wet camera out of the pond two minutes later. I originally trained as a physicist and teacher, but I realised soon afterwards that photography was my passion.

I've been semi pro for over a decade and fully professional for four years now. It's really important that you get the right photographer for your needs. Have a look around the site, if you like the photos give me a shout, packages are not off the shelf they are all tailored to what you want. I look forward to hearing from you.
