Having studied Engineering at Imperial College, London and then Design at the Royal College of Art, all of Chris's professional life has been concerned with film and photography. The fluid paintings that he creates are both inspired by, and draw on the movements and dynamics that he has discovered whilst filming some of the smallest organisms that inhabit the oceans. In turn the fluid paintings have attracted the attention of some of Hollywood’s biggest directors who have commissioned Chris to contribute to films such as ‘The Fountain’ and ‘The Tree of Life’.

Through a combination of his feature film work and his Stereoscopic 3D photography, Chris has found himself supervising the 3D on a number of features, including Tom Cruise's 'Edge of Tomorrow', JK Rowling's 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to find them' and the film recognised as the best 3D film of all time, ‘Gravity’.

Chris works with a small team of people who have been involved in many of the projects over the years. The fluids work has evolved out of work that his father, Peter started over 40 years ago when he was filming plankton on the Great Barrier Reef and was asked by Richard Donner to create some effects for Superman I.

Indeed, the biggest influence on Chris’s work comes from the natural world and his work as a natural history cameraman. Peter and Chris have been responsible for filming some of this planet’s most alien looking creatures, particularly those from the oceans and it is the way these creatures move, and the play of light and sound in their world, that is a recurring theme in much of Chris’s work.

Peter is a renowned cinematographer having won the Gordon E. Sawyer Oscar for his work, including the development of some of the optics now used by Chris for his fluids work.
