When you look at a photograph taken by Chris Booth you can tell that he cares deeply about
his profession. In the years I’ve worked with him at The Northern Echo I’ve lost count of the
times he has produced superb images that have helped to bring our stories to life. His
boundless enthusiasm and professionalism means that whether he is covering a local
community event or an international sporting fixture his talent shines through. I would
recommend him without hesitation.
Former Editor of The Northern Echo, Andy Richardson
I've been using Chris's services on a freelance basis on behalf of my public relations clients for several years. He delivers consistently excellent results. As well as being a pleasure to work with, he has genuine flair and vast experience of what newspaper editors require. He is professional and always produces high quality work quickly and at a fair price. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for all photographic work.
Michael McGeary of McGeary Media
I've known Chris for a number of years through my previous PR roles at North-East football clubs and was always impressed with the quality of his pictures, his people skills and his ability to always get the best shot. I've subsequently hired Chris for several PR and publishing requirements and I'm always delighted with his work. He's definitely the first freelance photographer on my contact list!
Martin Walker, Managing Director of Mantis Media Ltd
Chris is a passionate, dedicated and talented professional photographer. During his time at The Northern Echo, he was chosen to cover the most high-profile events, including the London Olympics, and that is testament to the confidence we had in him to do a first-class job. However, he is also the type of photographer to make the best of every everyday local assignments at the grass roots. Apart from being an exceptional photographer, he is also friendly, honest and easy to deal with. I have no hesitation in recommending him. Former Editor of The Northern Echo, Peter Barron
