"Unit stills is the best photography field I've worked in. Everyday on-set is different and work is still a joy…"

30 years ago, Chris Raphael started as a junior photographer for the largest sports photo agency in the world - Allsport Photographic / London. Learning from some of the top sports photographers in the world, Chris cut his teeth shooting major events, including the Olympics, and assisted on feature shoots throughout Europe for Sports Illustrated magazine. 4 years later he moved on to studio photography and landed a job assisting one of London's top portrait photographers, Clive Arrowsmith. Eventually, Chris's love of film saw him move into stills photography on-set, where his action and portrait background proved the perfect combination to shoot feature film productions.
