Chiz Dakin is an award-winning freelance photographer and writer with particular interest in outdoor themes such as landscape, adventure sports and travel.
She has four books published so far on themes from cycling to photography and video-making, writes walking routes on a regular basis for Trail magazine and articles on outdoors themes for various other magazines.
She is currently looking to expand on the number of outlets (both in print and online) that she writes about the outdoors for, so if you would be interested, please get in touch!
Having learned fast on an international mass-participation film based in her home-town of Derby to become one of only two chosen to shoot on the main “filming days”, she then spent some time shooting various projects with a film-making group that formed locally from many of the original crew but does not want to shoot another wedding or parts of a horror movie, no matter how pleased the clients were with her footage!
An enforced break due to other commitments now sees her returning to making short videos (both commercial and documentary) and shooting timelapse footage in her own right.
Photography, writing and short video commissions welcome.
Images can be licenced directly from Chiz through her Photoshelter account. Some are also available on Alamy.
