Chris Ward

I’m originally an Englishman but I moved … no, not to New-York, but to Bruges. I came to Bruges for Love in 2009 and since then I have set up my own photography business… and a little family. Back in the UK, I started my career off in the darkroom, worked as a product photographer, moved on to worldwide sports car photography and progressed into other areas including advertising, video editing and software training. Since 2004 I have run my own company, with a main focus on portrait photography and design work.

In Belgium I have expanded my services with a range of B2B solutions: product photography, design of logo’s, letterheads, stands, shop windows and websites. Due to my strong technical background and over 20 years of professional experience in photography, editing and design… I can make a lot happen.

Qualifications

BIPP qualifications are highly regarded and are recognised across the world as a benchmark of excellence. For each qualification twenty images and a working profile (describing your work) are assessed by a panel of judges from the BIPP’s professional photography qualifying board (PPQB).

FEP, Federation of European Professional Photographers, introduced in 1999 a single system of qualifications which is recognised and accepted by the 23 member associations of 20 countries within Europe. Twelve images are submitted to an international jury, judging in conditions of anonymity and under strict professional conditions.

My Core Values

COMMITMENT TO QUALITY

I don’t compromise when it comes to quality. I find it hard to accept ‘can’t be done’, but I am honest about my limits. I’ll give your photo’s my all.

INTEGRITY

I stand behind what I say, what I promise and what I believe. I hope you’ll see and feel it in every interaction with me.

PERSONAL SERVICE

My company is small, it is just me at my home. Every client is different, every client is important. I’m proud of the fact that my clients keep coming back and recommend me to others. Word of mouth is my main source of advertisement… so spread the word!

TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE

Nowadays everyone is a photographer… just not a very good one :). Of course ‘snapping away’ is one way to make photo’s but I do believe technical knowledge makes a big difference. After 20 years in photography, I think I’m allowed to say that I know slightly more than the basics!
