Biography

Chris KnightsChris Knights was born and bred in Norfolk where he lives with his wife Jo.  Their garden is a combination of 'formal' and 'wild' encouraging a wide variety of birds, a favourite subject for his numerous photographs.

Chris is very proud of his farming roots and loves to share his knowledge of the countryside with others.  An early interest in cameras lead him to become a film maker, working for Anglia Television Survival series, making films featuring brown hares, roe deer, grey partridge and stone curlews.  For five years he was About Anglia's 'Countryman' making short films about local wildlife for a regular slot on local television.

Chris now concentrates on still photography and continues to travel extensively both home and abroad in pursuit of his stunning subjects.  His work has been widely published in books and magazines and he has won many awards including British Bird magazine's 'Bird Photographer of the Year' three times.  In 2002 he published a book of his wildlife photography "The Feather and The Furrow" which is available for sale via this website (please use the contact form).  Chris has also given many illustrated talks on wildlife and conservation.

Chris is an active conservationist and is vice-chairman of the Countryside Restoration Trust.  He is also a member of the RSBP, the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust, and the Game Conservancy.  He believes passionately in bringing farming and wildlife together.
