Featured Photographer – Chris Beetham

29 November 2017

My name is Chris and I’m based in Merewether, Newcastle.

I got into photography after school when I started travelling. It started as just a way to upload a few photos to social media with a GoPro and starter DSLR, now I thoroughly enjoy the whole process, from the shooting to the post-production of the shots.

Having travelled through Europe, Canada, the USA and Central America, it has made me appreciate just how amazing and picturesque our coastlines and beaches are along the east coast of NSW; they’re some of the best in the world.

This fact and my attraction to water from being a competitive swimmer most of my life makes the ocean and our coastlines my favourite thing to photograph. Particularly the coastline at home in Newcastle, but also that of nearby Port Stephens, the South Coast at Stanwell Park and Mid North Coast regions like Crescent Head.
