Hello, My name is Chris Chudleigh and i’m a Freelance Photographer, Retoucher and Assistant based in Hackney, London.
My work is influenced by Music, Cinema, Art and Skateboarding Culture.
After graduating from the University of Westminster in 2008 I became Roberto Aguilar’s 1st assistant. As Roberto’s assistant I have worked on every major shoot at Bedhead Studios over the last 4 years gaining an in-depth understanding of contemporary hair photography from Tigi’s creative team headed by Anthony Mascolo and Nick Irwin.
Over the last year my own photographs have won several awards,
The Sean Hanna Awards:
*Avant Garde Creative Image Award Winner
*Stylist Creative Image Award Winner
*Colourist Creative Image Award Winner
The Rush Hair Awards:
*Assistant Hairdresser of the Year Award Winner
In 2011 I became an in-house photographer for Disorder Magazine shooting music editorials with artists like Chipmunk, Wolfgang and the Heartbreaks as well as many fashion editorials.
Recently my retouching work has appeared on London Busses, Shop window fronts and in several hair magazines.
Throughout 2013 I will be shooting for new hair awards, retouching for Tigi and shooting new and established musicians.
