Chris North spent most of his childhood years away from the urban life, having been raised mostly in the Yorkshire countryside.
His love for Yorkshire has grown throughout his early years, and he attributes his devotion to interpreting God’s County to as a boy following his father who was a keen and accomplished amateur photographer dedicated to the photographic arts. His father’s knowledge of the landscape and seasons was invaluable.
Chris qualified as a photographer in The Royal Navy winning many awards in his 22 year military career, he quickly realized most photographic scenarios needed a “eye” to add an extra element to transcend an image to a piece of art form. This soon became an insatiable desire to record the beauty of nature. The camera soon became the perfect medium to express his true inner feelings.
The essence of his mission is to photograph Yorkshire in depth, in his own way. Often using the military term “there no such thing as a wasted recce (reconnaissance) to find and discover the optimum time and season to cature a particular location”.
Chris has set his goals to always improve his craft. His quest to become a better photographer will never cease. He personally thinks that the learning curve is endless, and he has only himself to criticize when he feels that he is not living up to his artistic endeavors. Constantly searching for those rare magical moments when the Perfect Light embraces nature in all its glory, you can rest assured – that this is only the beginning of a long and dedicated quest to capture the breathtaking beauty of nature.
