Jonathan Chritch­ley Turn­ing coastal shots into cash

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

“From the mo­ment I de­cided I wanted to be a pho­tog­ra­pher, turn­ing pro hap­pened very quickly, over a few months ac­tu­ally. I knew I wanted to take pic­tures of the sea, but couldn’t fig­ure out at that time how I was go­ing to earn money do­ing it, so I found a niche pho­tograph­ing new mod­els at Lon­don agen­cies us­ing the beaches of the south coast of Eng­land.

“It was great ex­pe­ri­ence, work­ing with coastal light, and taught me a great deal as well as bring­ing in some much-needed cash. I was only young so I didn’t need much to live on then, and I used to shoot en­tirely in black-and-white and process and print in my kitchen, so over­heads were very low. A fun time and a nec­es­sary part of the jour­ney that led me to where I am now.”
