About Chris Traill
I first entered the photography industry at the age of 18 and have devoted my work and private lives to story telling through the craft of still photography. My life is a mix of family, commercial work and personal projects. I am a visual junkie. Obsessed with making amazing photographs. I apply my creative eye to whatever the task/subject and work across many genres including portraiture, corporate, beauty, fashion, weddings, documentary and event photography, including large festivals, music, fashion and cultural events. I portray a story with passion and flair using my technical expertise, people and posing skills from many years of life and photographic experience in order to get the desired imagery required.
My work has featured extensively in magazines, books, CDs and corporate publications throughout the country, gracing the covers of many. I am proud of my list of clientele. During my colourful and constantly evolving career, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph some of New Zealand’s true characters, including, celebrities, artists, models and musicians. From receiving awards, I have achieved recognition within the N.Z Institute of Professional Photography being awarded double master (fellow) honours and I am currently Auckland Chairman of NZIPP. I also have a range of fine art work, Toi Toi Design, available for hire or purchase.
