Shooting in extreme environments like the freezing cold Falkland Islands and sweltering heat of Iraq, it's fair to say that Canon pro Chris Winter knows a thing or two about working under pressure. 

Chris is known for creating bold, vibrant and eye-catching images on location and in the studio. Based in Leicestershire, he shoots commissions in London, across the UK, and internationally. A highlight was when the National Portrait Gallery’s acquired his striking Sir Ranulph Fiennes portrait for their collection.
