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. He went on to shoot narrative TV for many years and also has two feature films under his belt. He currently concentrates on documentaries, shooting worldwide for German and international clients and also enjoys filming classical music, from intimate portraits to orchestral performances and operas, including the use of  remote camera systems.

“My favourite shooting style? Hand-held with my own Amira! But I also enjoy putting my Mavic 3 in the air and am currently experimenting with the possibilities of 360° VR.”
