I blame all of this on Jonathan…. I first stumbled across Jonathan’s website ( www.jonathanchritchley.net) in January 2008 and was truly memorised by his images. The seed was sown and I was spurned to purchase my first DSLR camera. I continue to strive for, but will never match, the perfect in his images………..
Born in Wimbledon, London, Jonathan became infatuated with the sea after moving to the sailing town of Lymington on the south coast of England at the age of 14. Having studied photography at Poole Art College and assisted various marine and travel photographers, Jonathan moved to the coast of south west France in 1998, and now lives close to the town of Biarritz, where the formidable Bay of Biscay, the Pyrenees Mountains and the mighty Atlantic swell provide a dramatic backdrop to his photographs. He also spends much of his time travelling to some of the best water locations in the world working in and around the ocean to create his trademark dramatic, ethereal images. Passionate about the sea and sailing boats, Jonathan attempts to perpetuate through his work the beauty and purity of our all too fragile environment and celebrate the stunning grace and architecture of classic sailing vessels.
