About Chris Bishop
Chris' passion in photography, in particular travel and landscape photography, began when he received his first camera (a kodak instamatic) prior to travelling through Europe, Asia and Africa as a 6 year old.
With no formal training in composition, rule of thirds or exposure, Chris embarked on a journey that would lay the foundation for his future career.
While the photographs of that travel experience have been aging in the back of a cupboard in a non-archival photo album for the past three decades, Chris' passion, enthusiasm, and love of photography remain.
The "magic" of capturing "moments in time" and sharing them with the world is the driving force behind his passion.
Through school Chris excelled at photography winning awards and gaining selection to receive additional training and exhibit his works at the West Australian Photography Gallery. Upon leaving school, Chris Bishop completed his Diploma in Applied Science of Photography (majoring in commercial photography).
It was during these formative years of study that Chris began assisting some of Perth's leading commercial, architectural and fashion photographers, some of whom he would work with upon graduating. The knowledge and experience gained from some of Western Australia's most recognised and respected photographers laid the foundation for Chris' future as a freelance commercial and travel photographer.
Having exhibited several times in Perth, Western Australia as part of collaborative exhibitions, Chris Bishop's current focus is preparing to exhibit his last two years worth of travel photography in a solo exhibition.
Chris is always looking for exhibition space in Perth or abroad either within Australia or internationally. Please contact Chris Bishop with any requests, information or questions and he will endeavour to reply to every inquiry.
