About Chris Wright
I’m a Photographer and Technologist, co-founder of Helter Skelter Media.
What I did…
I spent twenty years in the music industry, promoting bands, being a DJ and Video maker, promoting clubs in London. Marvellous days.
I gained degrees in two subjects. BA (Hons) Photography, Film and Television from London College of Printing and an MSc in Computing from the University of North London.
I also taught Multimedia Technology at the University of North London for three years.
I wrote two books for Hodder & Stoughton on the Java Programming Language and Using the Internet for Research.
I worked in the New Media Industry for Clockwork Web and as a consultant for Bloomsbury Software.
I joined IBM as a consultant specialising in Portal Technology. I stayed for 14 years and worked with the BBC and BSkyB, Reuters, WPP, Reed Elsevier and other great media companies.
What I am Doing..
Co Founder of Helter Skelter Media
A media company based in the UK and Spain operating in two dimensions. The name comes from the view from our first office – across the seafront to the Helter Skelter on Brighton Pier.
1. Commercial Photography and Video – Helter Skelter Studios
2. Digital Marketing – Helter Skelter Digital
I’m a compulsive adopter of new technologies and love to write about them. My business partner thinks my writing is too technical for creative businesses…
That’s why I’ve started Digital Skin.
Did I mention I’m a lifelong fan of Leeds United? My first match at Elland Road was in 1969 vs. Liverpool. It’s been a long and occasionally rocky road, but in Bielsa I trust!
