Photographic commissions

Since establishing Chromasia in 2005 we have undertaken a broad range of commercial and private commissions and have worked with numerous clients including companies, non-profit organisations, publishers, governmental agencies, the Arts Council (England) and a number of individuals (for both private projects and their weddings). In each case our primary aim has been to match our creative vision, in terms of both the style and content of our photography, to the project and client’s requirements. We use state-of-the-art equipment to produce our images, including Canon 5D Mark II bodies, a wide range of ‘L’ series lenses, and a variety of RAW processors and image editing packages.

If you like our work, and would like to commission us for one of your own projects, either in the UK or further afield, please get in touch as follows:

Henrietta’s elephants (private commission, September 2006)
These two small elephants travelled around with me for about six months. They belong to Henrietta, who commissioned me to produce a shot of them – on location – as a gift for her friend's first wedding anniversary. They were used originally as the table decorations for the wedding, so a photograph of them one year on seemed quite fitting.

Some alternative shots of the elephants can be seen here.

Blackpool Tourism: TVR Back Home meetup (July 2006)
TVR’s are built in Blackpool and in July 2006 around four hundred of them, including the sole remaining Cerbera Speed 12, returned to Blackpool for the TVR Back Home meetup. I was commissioned to photograph the day's events.

The primary aim of this commission was to produce an image, to be given as a gift, that captured the essence of the relationship between the reciever of the gift and the person who commissioned it.

We are not wedding photographers, but we have photographed a number of weddings for clients who like our style of work. Please for further information.
