Chris Floyd is a British photographer and film maker. His photographic work has appeared in some of the world’s most highly respected publications, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Harpers Bazaar, GQ, Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine and Wallpaper* among others. He has shot advertising campaigns for Apple, British Airways, Sony and Philips and has been selected several times for the National Portrait Gallery’s Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize and the annual publication, American Photography.
As a director he has produced moving image work for Avis, Anthropologie, Mr Porter, Space NK and a Christmas TV campaign for Debenhams.
Chris’s attention to the subtleties of mood, texture, emotion, light and colour is what binds his aesthetic and attitude into a coherent and unique style. Regardless of subject, it is these elements that he seeks to bring to his work and they infuse everything you will see on this site.
In a career that has spanned over twenty years he believes that the most important aspect of his working method is his ability to establish a level of collaboration and ease with his subject that allows him to engender intimacy and empathy within the frame.
“I can hear the tune in my head, after that it’s just a question of working with the subject in a way that allows me to find the notes on the piano.”
