Chris Gatcum Biography
Chris Gatcum has been involved in photography for over two decades, working as a photographer, journalist, and author. Like many aspiring photographers, his career started at college where a degree course taught him a wide range of skills and technologies, covering both studio and location work, large format photography through to the then-emerging digital technology, and, of course, Photoshop.
He went on to work as a set-builder on a number of high-end advertising campaigns and as a photographer and retoucher, before joining the UK’s longest-standing photography magazine, Amateur Photographer, as technical writer. Magazines led to books, and the rest—as the cliché goes—is history…
Chris’ books include Creative Digital Photography: 52 Weekend Projects (published as Camera Creative in the US), Light & Shoot: 50 Fashion Photos, and Landscape Photography: The Four Seasons. He currently lives in East Sussex, UK.
