Chris Pendleton is a fine art photographer/visual artist from Edinburgh, Scotland. A graduate of the prestigious Edinburgh College of Art, Chris studied at the school of sculpture and graduated in 2008.
Very much a visual artist, Chris spent much of his time working on large scale sculptural installations alongside developing his photographic technique. Since graduating, Chris has pushed his photography career and developed a style that could be difficult to describe as photography in the traditional sense. Chris makes no excuses for his photographic technique as he has been able to develop his commercial photography skills alongside fashion and beauty photographer, Ashley-liv Jamieson, of the White Light Company. Working alongside Ashley-liv as part of her creative team, Chris has had numerous publications in titles all over the world such as Dark Beauty Magazine, Vogue Italia and more.
More recently, Chris has been the second half of Iconic Edinburgh, partnered with aclaimed travel and documentary photographer, Will Robb. Together they have been able to establish themselves as one of the premier photographic tuition companies in Edinburgh, with tours and workshops based in Edinburgh and the Scottish highlands. They have also partnerd with the internationaly renowned Fruitmarket Gallery in the past to provide specialist workshops to compliment current exhibitions.
Chris has successfully sold art works directly into numerous private collections both nationally and internationally as far as Qatar, Dubai, New Zealand and more. However, recently basing himself in the new and exciting arts community, The Biscuit Factory, Chris will be focusing on local and international exhibitions.
