Hi I'm Christopher Moore – Horowhenua & Manawatu Photographer.
A fan of the great outdoors, I love running mountain biking and exploring the beach with my family. There’s nothing quite like relaxing and enjoying some of my home brewed beer or spirits. I’m also a pretty mean cook, and my favourite dish to cook of all time is slow cooked American style pork ribs.
As a perfectionist, I won’t rest until I capture the perfect image. I’m a real people person, someone who enjoys capturing the performance, essence and emotions of others, along with the environment in my work. Great at putting people at ease with my laid back personality, even the most reluctant of photography subjects enjoys their photo shoot! My superb studio and on location lighting techniques, together with my advanced Photoshop retouching and compositing skills, ensure perfection in every image I take.
I would say my photographic styles is a mixture of well lit, controlled dramatic emotion. Look at my project portfolio and tell me what you think! Like all great photographers, I’ve dedicated a lot of time to honing my skills both academically and experience wise. I’m proud of what I’ve achieved, including:
