Born and brought up in England, Christopher relocated to Berlin after graduating from Exeter University with a BA in German and Drama in 1983 and has lived there ever since. After training as a camera assistant and cutting his teeth on news and current affairs while the Berlin Wall came down, he went on to shoot and produce documentaries and music videos in the heyday of the Berlin techno scene.

Christopher was mentored by Michael Ballhaus ASC during a two year cinematography course at Hamburg University. After graduating from that course in 1998 he regularly shot episodic TV and TV movies, and has two feature films under his belt. He continues to shoot TV documentaries worldwide for German and international clients and also specialises in filming classical music.
