About Me

First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to visit my webpage, it's exciting for me to have a place online where I can display my work and call my own.

My names Chris Canavan I'm an amateur photographer based in Derry, Northern Ireland who's been taking photos on and off as a hobby for the past 15 years. I caught the shutterbug from my dad who was a keen photographer and when growing up my mum used to say I was the most photographed child in Derry. These days I prefer to stay behind the camera.

For me photography means two things. The first being the challenge of getting that perfect shot whether it’s at a motorsport event taking pictures of motorbikes passing at 100+mph or something more sedate like sitting on a hillside taking pictures of a sunset. Both these scenarios present unique challenges and when you get the shot you're looking for its very rewarding.

Secondly my photography has aloud me to see parts of this beautiful Country I live in that I'd never see otherwise. Derry is almost the perfect place for a photographer due to its proximity to some stunning scenery like the Causeway Coast and Glens or County Donegal and the Wild Atlantic Way.
