Chris Tancock : Part 2

This is the second and final part of our conversation with Chris. You can still listen to part one.

"I'm a black and white photographer", says Chris Tancock. Based near the beautiful small City of St Davids in Pembrokeshire, Chris currently works within a five mile radius of his small family cottage which also hosts a gallery with a selection of his work. Popular with collectors and respected by Landscape photographers, the scenes he captures are near-timeless and far more nuanced with the inclusion of workers of the land and details of flora and fauna.
