DOCUMENTARY Family PhotographER south wales


Hey there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Chris - the photographer behind The Silence of the Lens. I'm a South Wales photographer who specialises in natural, relaxed, documentary-style family photography.

I cover all of South Wales including Swansea, Cardiff, Bridgend, Neath Port Talbot, Llanelli, Vale of Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire, Newport, the surrounding areas... and I love a roadtrip so I'm more than happy to travel anywhere in the UK! 

Family Photography

Would you love photographs of your children and your family but don't want those awkward, , white-background, forced-posed studio shoots? In that case, I have something just for you... A Slice of Life!

'A Slice of Life' sessions are natural, relaxed family photography without all the stress - documenting the real moments of your everyday family life. These are perfect for those families who want to capture and preserve how their children and lives are right now. 

I have a selection of packages ranging from A Slice of Life, to A Day In The Life, to A Year In The Life (e.g. Baby's First Year).

To me, documentary photography means making a picture so that the viewer doesn’t think about the man who made the picture. At its esthetic core is very old tradition in art: naturalism. And its purpose is to document all facets of social relationships.
