Born in England, Chris Warnes studied Design and Photography at the University of Newcastle, and worked as an Art Director in Editorial and Advertising for over a decade. His passion for being behind the lens is now his full time career.
Chris used a traditional Hasselblad camera to capture delicacy and calm. The simplicity of his technical approach gives his artwork a softness and grain that can only be achieved by shooting in this traditional way. Inspired by mood, atmosphere and the timeless moments in nature that translate emotion and soul, Chris chooses not to digitally work his images, allowing them to simply reflect moments in time captured on traditional film. After hours of standing in rain, walking through blizzards and being soaked by storm surges, this series of work encapsulates the tone, soul and space of the Australian ocean and landscape.
