Billy and Me - Chris Sutton Photography

It’s odd how life goes in cycles, and also hugely satisfying. I started my professional career as a photographer and gained considerable experience working with advertising agencies as well as the usual weddings etc.

However, life came along and I rode a wave of change until some 20 years ago I founded Australia’s first cloud e-commerce development company in the then shiny new website design and software industry. As a way to relax from the long hours and stress of that business, I turned again to photography. Just casually at first without thinking a lot about it, but soon found that the passion still burned brightly, to the point now that I simply can’t imagine not exercising the creative itch everyday.

Of course, every photographer needs an assistant. Billy, our West Highland Terrier, was my constant companion for over 16 years, and while he never learnt much about photography, he certainly knew how to make me laugh every day.
