Chris Lacey

I developed my love of photography at college and later studied a Visual Communication degree at Derby University, which gave me a great foundation to start my career in creating and representing photography.

With a wealth of both commercial and editorial experience gained whilst working for various photographic agencies and agents across London, I began working for the National Trust photographic department in 2003. I have directed National Trust photography for the past 11 years being the Photographic Manager and responsible for establishing the creative style and providing inspirational imagery to the organization and clients globally.

I also work as a freelance photographer shooting people, portraits, architecture and collections, gardens and landscapes. Clients include fine art publishers, national magazines, national heritage organisations, estate agents, and individuals.

Please feel free to take a look at my website for latest images and contact/information, or browse the 20,000 images I have taken for the National Trust.
