Professional Photographer

Chris has always had a deep passion for creative photography. The Son of an Artist – Manwel Cassar , he purchased his first SLR camera at age twelve.  As a young teenager he would always be found with a camera in his hands.  When not taking pictures, he would spend days and nights in a 1.2 X 1.2 meter pantry converted into a darkroom. Countless hours were spent in that little space processing film, hand enlarging black & white prints, whilst exploring and refining various photographic techniques.
