Christiaan Partridge is a photographer based in the United Kingdom who came to the profession later in life.  His photographic journey started in 2008 with the purchase of a Nikon D40X camera, followed by a beginner's Landscape Photography course with  After this, he caught the photography bug, going on further workshops, primarily Landscape Photography, and developing a wildflower Macro Photography style.

Christiaan further developed his repertoire whilst studying for a Diploma of Professional Photography in 2013 via distance learning with The Blackford Centre (  This developed a taste for discovering portraiture, product and commercial photography.  His broader interests include soccer, cricket and vintage aircraft, which have become photography subjects.

He has exhibited on three occasions at the Beyond The Image Gallery (, a specialist photography gallery.  His first exhibition in 2017, "Suffolk Flora: An Individual Perspective," displayed his unique macro photography images of local wildflowers.  The second and third exhibitions followed in 2019, firstly "She Sells Sea Shells," images from the East Coast of England, and "In Antiquum Urbem," which followed a trail of travel/street photography through the mediaeval Citta Antico of Genoa in Italy.

Christiaan has completed a level 5 Higher National Diploma with the British Association of Photography (, which has broadened his horizons further.  His first SDN exhibition, "Lockdown UK XX," is a photo essay of his own experiences as a parent and a family doctor of the COVID-19 restrictions in the United Kingdom as part of the HND course.  Christiaan's Genoa and Venice street images have recently been published in the latest Capsules Books volume, "Curatorial Voume.2 Leaders in Contemporary Art" ( He has completed his degree with the University of Chester, gaining Forst Class Honours and has been awarded with Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).
