Chris Freeman is one of the most prolific SUP photographers in the west of of England. He’s also one of the nicest paddlers you’ll meet. Which is good, because if you ever get into difficulties in the Severn Area, Chris is one of the trained volunteers who might come to your rescue with SARA (Severn Area Rescue Association).
Chris is a frequent paddler with SUP Stroud, SUP Gloucester and SUP Slimbridge and so has many action and landscape photos of the River Severn, River Wye, Sharpness Canal, Stroudwater navigation and other canals in the Cotswold Canals.
Here are a selection of his action shots from recent paddles. If you’re a journalist looking for unique SUP photos, check out his profile, and give him a shout if you want to purchase any.

Team McConks photowall
We get lots of photos sent from our lovely extended family – holiday photos, fun photos, photos of kids growing up. We love getting them, and we love seeing our kit being used around the world. It makes all the late nights and hard work worth it to see those smiles!
But some of you have asked if we could create a gallery of the photos you’ve sent, even asking if it’s possible for you to upload them directly. and the answer has always been no, because we’ve not been able to configure the website securely enough to allow this to happen.
We did it!
Guess what… We’ve finally found a secure way to do it 🙂 You can now use a simple form to upload photos to the Team McConks photowall.
And even better, you can write a short note or short article. as part of the upload! So you can provide some words to set the scene or to promote your favourite cause.
Map your photos and footage
We’re also implementing a way that you’ll be able to add a pin to a map to locate the photos, which will then open up the post and photos. It’s in beta at the moment, but you can try it here.
Upload from your phone or tablet
But the best bit? You can do all of this direct from your phone or tablet. The upload has been optimised for mobile. So snap away with your snazzy new waterproof phone, and upload on the go. No more waiting around ’til you get in front of a laptop!
The small print
You retain full copyright of your photos, and if McConks ever would like to use the photos in any of our marketing, we will of course ask for permission.
The only rules about submitting a post and photos are:
- Keep it clean and legal
- You remain responsible and liable for the content
- Make it fun
- You agree that we can share a link to the post you’ve created on social media (Facebook, Insta, Twitter, Pinterest)
p.s. There might be short delay between submitting your post and photos and the post going live on the website. Sorry about this, but we do need to check that the content is suitable for our webpage, and not spammy. The posts will appear here, and we will (eventually) put a link to the feed on our homepage.
p.p.s If you want to promote your SUP related business through this feed, you’re welcome to do so as long as you feature our products as part of the photos/feed please. You can add a URL, so you can use this as part of your SEO strategy.
p.p.p.s You will also be able to view all of the photos in a photo gallery, but we’re still working on that!
