Portrait and people photographer Chris Frazer Smith was born in 1963 in the North West of England and grew up in East Anglia. He picked up his first camera at a very early age and has been shooting ever since. Shooting predominately portraiture & people, both commissioned and non-commissioned photography & film, on location and in the studio.
Chris's images capture life at home, work and play. His attention to narrative and detail are paramount and his strong sense of art direction allows him to work closely with creative teams from advertising agencies, publishers, record companies and design groups.
Preferring to show a larger proportion of non-commissioned work Chris's portfolios show personal projects, both stills and motion. His love affair with photography has sent him around the world shooting for commercial clients as well as personal projects, and when not shooting people he is often focusing his cameras, and more recently drones, on landscapes both rural and urban.
Chris has been recognised with numerous international awards from organisations including: The prestigious Lucie International Photographer of The Year Award, The Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, The BJP Portrait Of Britain, The Association of Photographers, Communication Arts, American Photography, The British Journal of Photography, Campaign Magazine, Creative Review, The Masters Cup, Applied Arts, One Eyeland and Photo District News. His work has been exhibited in galleries around the world including the National Portrait Gallery and The Royal Academy in London.
He has been a D&AD judge and continues to mentor & lecture students both on photography and film.
