Chris Graeme has been living and working as an editor, journalist, events photographer and translator in Lisbon, Portugal since 1998.

Over the past 20 years he has contributed to many English language publications in Portugal and has photographed the country’s political and social elite extensively.

He has regularly covered and contributed to organisations such as the American Club of Lisbon, the British-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and the International Club of Portugal.

As a photographer and journalist, he has covered most of the major political, social and cultural landmarks in Portugal’s history over the past 20 years including the Treaty of Lisbon and the disappearance of Madeleine McCann in 2007.

Before that he lived and worked in the South-West of England and London on regional dailies and in Moscow and St. Petersburg where he edited the arts section and was a regular contributor of three weekly English language newspapers, the Moscow Tribune, the Moscow Times and St.Petersburg Press for the tourist and expat community.

Since 2010 he has focused on the Portuguese real estate, tourism and retail sectors as the English editor of several trade sector magazines including the property title People & Business, the retail and tourism development title Partners in Business, the American Club of Lisbon magazine People with Attitude, the property title Magazine Imobiliário and Jordão’s Cooling Systems Cool magazine.

In 2015 he provided English language media content for the Luxemburg Ministry of Foreign Affairs during that country’s six-month Presidency of the European Union.

In 2016 he wrote his first novel Cassandra’s Cavern which is profoundly inspired by Portugal, its history and legends and for which he is currently seeking literary representation.
