Chris Cassar has always had a deep passion for creative photography. He purchased his first SLR camera at age twelve. As a young teenager he spent days and nights in a 1.2x1.2 M2 pantry converted to a darkroom - processing film, hand enlarging black & white prints as well as experimenting and refining other photographic techniques.

Chris has a wealth of photographic experience. His style is intuitive and finely evolved. He views his professional career as a vocation rather than a job.
