Chris Foster was born in London, England where he worked as a professional photographer for 35 years.
His early career was spent largely in the rock 'n' roll arena, photographing the likes of Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis - as well as documenting the fledgling careers of such up-and-coming artistes as Elton John, David Bowie and Rod Stewart.
From his riverside studio in London's Chelsea, Chris went on to explore other areas in photography, eventually sharpening his focus on still-life, location and architectural subjects.
He has photographed cars for Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Toyota, Rover and MG and has been commissioned on countless assignments for clients as diverse as British Airways, IBM, Philips, Samsung, Royal Mail and The Ritz.
In 2005, Chris and his New York-born wife Suzee decided to swap the city lights of London for the more photogenic light of Long Island, where he now specializes in photography of fine interiors and exteriors in the Hamptons and on the North Fork.
He has photographed such iconic properties as Andy Warhol’s Eothen summer compound in Montauk, Vince Camuto’s Villa Maria in Water Mill and Wooldon Manor on Gin Lane in Southampton, The Baker House 1650 and The Hedges Inn in East Hampton, and Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina.
In New York, Chris has been featured on WLIW TV’s The Ticket as Artist of the Week and WPPB Public Radio as a guest of Bonnie Grice. His real estate and art images have been published in Assouline’s Life of Style by Vince Camuto, The Private Oasis by Edmund Hollander, as well as numerous newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, New York Post, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Newsday and Hamptons Magazine.
Deep experience in his field enables Chris to progress accurately and smoothly to the finished high-resolution digital file. His tools of the trade are Nikon cameras and dedicated architectural lenses, sun seeking IPhone app and Apple MacBook, tripod and spirit level. These, together with his enthusiasm and attention to detail, pay dividends in the final result.
