Podcast – Chris Coe

Chris Coe is the co-founder of Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) and has been a photographer for over 30 years. Here he chats with Newton & Coe co-host, David Newton.

Chris is a professional photographer, photography tutor, lecturer, author, exhibition curator, book publisher, photo competition judge and one half of the Newton & Coe podcast duo. In this episode he is interviewed by his co-presenter David Newton and talks about how he started photography as a second career and how this led to founding TPOTY. 

Before TPOTY, he was a successful and very busy photographer. He undertook commissions for over 50 books and has published several ‘how to do’ photography books. Now, as TPOTY enters its 20th year, he’s hoping to spend more time on his own photography again.
