About Us

Chris Brunnen was inspired by photography at 10 years old when he got his first camera. At school he studied fine art and photography to ‘A’ Level and later graphic design and photography at art college. Chris worked in the industry for 5 years before setting up CJB Photography and is now one of the most experienced and longest established photographic businesses in the area.

Established in 1986 especially to cater for the needs of Designers, Advertising Agencies and Businesses needing Commercial Photography, CJB Photography is now the leading commercial photo studio in the South of England, supplying a huge variety of clients from small businesses to local and international governments with Studio, Location & Aerial Photography.

Our Services


Helicopters are the best platform for aerial photography, being smoother, more stable and manoeuvrable than fixed wing aircraft, with no wheels or wing struts to obscure the view. I use professional quality, high resolution cameras and lenses, too big for a drone to carry. I fly regularly and cover numerous sites on each flight sharing the cost between clients, making the highest quality aerial photography more affordable.

Aerial Photo Library

I’ve been taking aerial photographs from helicopters for 30 years and in that time I’ve built up a huge library of photographs. Older images are useful for records, boundary disputes or historic interest and more recent shots are often used for property sales particulars or planning submissions and can be supplied as high resolution, repro-quality digital files or Jpegs for web use.

There are also many scenic shots of the South of England and the Solent which can be supplied as framed prints for your wall.
