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 and events 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, has been my constant companion for the last 12 years, and while he hasn’t learnt much about photography in that time he certainly knows how to make me laugh every day.

Earlier this year I was selected by Google as one of the first members of the Create community, a global initiative to support creative endeavour everywhere.

Commercially, over the last 20 years I’ve gained extensive experience and understanding of the importance of imagery in successful online businesses. Larger businesses can devote the resources to produce high quality images that tell the story about a product or service, but smaller businesses can find that a struggle, and that’s where I’m focusing my attention, helping small businesses compete online.
