SHOTbystAn - photography & design      0783 442 4096

Freelance photographer based in Yorkshire – but known to pop up all over the place.


Be it live music, still life or promo shoots, I’ve covered all kinds of photography.

Realising a vision, creating a scene.Capturing the moment, freezing a split second in time to create an ever lasting memory.

If you’ve got an idea or event that you would like photographing let me know.

My laid back, yet professional approach, will make it easy for us to get along and even easier for us to discuss what it is that YOU want. Drop me a line or give me a call.

What my clients have to say about me...

Lara Gothique / Velvet Burlesque: 
Chris (Shot by stAn) is an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, efficient, and friendly to deal with, his photos are a fabulous account of our Burlesque, Cabaret & Variety shows.

I have no hesitation in recommending Chris for live or studio photography work - he has a very good eye for detail, and works hard to ensure each shot is captured and edited in the best way possible. - Lara Gothique - (TM) 

Jord / Shots Fired 
Having had a photographer pull out of a photo shoot last minute, I was referred to stAn and he was more than accomodating in travelling over to work with us on the day at such short notice. 
He was more than understanding as to what we wanted from the shoot, as well as adding his own creativity to the photos themselves rather than taking generic shots etc. 
Given the time frame we had to work with, his turnover of work was exceptionally quick and of a high quality. 
An absolute pleasure to work with and would highly recommend his professionalism as well as natural talent for photography- Jord-ShotsFired

Emily Rose / Double Twist Circus

I have worked with many photographers in the 14 years of my circus career, and I can guarantee that Chris, of Shot by Stan photography is one of the most professional and always produces great results. 
He's reliable, personable, flexible and has the creative flair to set up a quality photograph in record timing. 
My partner and I from Double Twist Circus will be using a great many of the photo's from our photo shoot, to promote our new company, and we have already booked him for the next shoot. 
Chris/ Shot by Stan also has great editing skills, and goes above what an ordinary photographer would do by designing logo's and promotional material for bands and performers. 
I can highly recommend Shot by Stan, and look forward to more work with him in the future. - Emily Greenwood: Emily Rose Circus/ Double Twist Circus

Caitlin / Get Ready 
Stan came to do a photo shoot for us at our local place The Hop in Leeds. I wanted natural photographs and something different for my band. 
He made us all very relaxed. No awkwardness and we had such a great laugh with him. 
We shot around Leeds canal and around the Hop. It has some great eye catching views there and he knew what we were looking for and what would work. 
Four lads and a female singer could be hard work. But I'm no diva and we are from the North. We had a fun day and the photographs we got back from Stan were more than I expected. We've had so many great feedback on them. I can't wait until he comes back and does some of our live shots when we next play a local gig and I've already planned a family shoot with him. 
It's not just about the photographs it's the person who is taking them and how they make you feel. Relaxed, have fun and see something others won't. Recommend him yes. He's become a good friend to us and he'd be a great guy to photograph your event whatever it happens to be. Check our photographs out on our get ready website. 😄👌 - Caitlin - Get Ready
