Chris Spencer, PhotographerChris Spencer is a freelance photographer who lives in the picturesque town of Forres on the Moray coast of Scotland.  His background career has been an enjoyable and rewarding 30 years with the Royal Air Force.  He has just established the business ActivNorth Photography and will be the Moray 2013 Official Photographer.

Chris has been a regular orienteer and runner since the mid-nineties. A past chairman and committee member of Moravian orienteering club who has previously planned and controlled at the Six Days and the 2008 British Champs at Culbin.
Orienteering is a colourful and exciting sport which rightly deserves to be captured like any other photographed sport.  Chris has already proven that as an orienteer and photographer you need to get up close to showcase the dynamic beauty of orienteering for which we all truly enjoy.

ActivNorth.com is a sports action photography website that will record some moments from Moray 2013. It is a fast and simple way to deliver photos to you.  It will enable you the competitor, your family and your friends to keep as lasting memories. ActivNorth will be uploading a large selection of photos taken immediately after each day’s event.  Remaining images from the day will be uploaded after the week is completed. All images in the galleries will be available to be purchased at a very competitive price. On completion of your purchase you will then be directed to download the hi-res image.

ActivNorth Photo GalleryActivNorth is about trying to seize the moment, capturing the drama and to tell a story.  Sports photography is like sport itself.  You get one chance to get it right then it disappears; it's challenging but extremely rewarding when you get the shots.  Photos from ActivNorth are regularly exhibited in newspapers, magazines, websites and advertising. Chris also took the challenge as amateur photographer when he photographed the 6 Days at Oban 2011. His images also appear amongst this year’s supplement to the book “A Few Surplus Maps” compiled by John Colls.

A large selection of images from Oban 2011 are still available to view and purchase on his website.
The website activnorth.com will give you the opportunity to view, purchase and download photographic digital images.  The advanced photography ecommerce is hosted by PhotoDeck that is optimised to sell photos online in an amazingly fast and simple way.  PayPal is used to handle all financial transactions when you purchase an image from the website.  The information page on the website will tell you more about the buying process should you require it.

Chris is keen to receive any comments or suggestions about the work of ActivNorth should you see him during the period of the event.
