As a former professional athlete I know the sheer grit, grind and passion it takes to get to the top.

It’s the same approach that’s helped me become the top fitness photographer in the UK, too.

Since picking up a camera over 20 years ago I’ve been shooting the most well-known fitness professionals and brands in the world.

I’ve photographed Mr Olympia more times than any other UK photographer (six, if you’re keeping tabs).

You’ll also find my work on the covers of magazines – and inside the pages of Muscle & Fitness, FLEX Magazine, Men’s Fitness, Muscle Insider and more.

I know what it takes to be the best. And I’m here to help you achieve that same level of success from your photo shoot, too.

Whether you’re a professional athlete, global fitness brand, personal trainer or complete beginner – I’ll help you create the content that helps you stand out from the crowd.



Whether it’s the gym or the studio, I’ve always got good coffee to fuel my shoots.

I bought my first board on Venice Beach Boardwalk. I go back every year now.

My bike collection’s growing. This Harley was my first – and it's still my favourite.

My son, Tripp Bailey, keeps me grounded and grateful every single day.

Love to create some art work through the photography with Chris. To me his photos are some of best moments captured in my career. So much talent and vision

I have worked with many of our leading photographers over the years and in my opinion Christopher Bailey is one of the top three photographers currently working in the worldwide bodybuilding and fitness industry

I’ve worked with Christopher Bailey on many occasion and always enjoyed it. Relaxed, professional and the results are always the same.... mind blowing pictures
