Christian Hopewell

After working as a freelance photographer, spending a near-decade on YouTube and having picked up a journalism degree somewhere along the way, Christian joined Expert Reviews in 2019. As our in-house Videographer and Photographer, he gets hands on with just about every product we review, producing original photography and video buying guides. A man of many hats, he also writes across a range of product categories and manages Expert Reviews’ social media channels. Outside of work, you’ll find him out walking or developing film in the darkroom.
