With Boyzone the 37 years old swapped touring for his photography studio in Cheltenham.
And even though he set up Revolve Studios at the height of the credit crunch he says the past 12 months have been as successful as he could have imagined.
He was able to start the firm using a £2,500 grant from Cheltenham Borough Council to help pay the bills.
The cash, which amounted to half of the first year's basic rent on his premises in Regents Street, was offered as part of the Business Pride scheme to encourage new firms.
"Without that money we simply wouldn't have survived the first year," said Chris, 37 of Prestbury.
In London he started out as a professional dancer working and later moved into event management, working for a modelling agency.
But it was only last year that he had the brainwave to set up a photographic studio, at the same time which offered clients a makeover.
He ploughed his own money into getting the business off the ground and decided on Cheltenham as the perfect place to target families, hen nights and children's parties.
In August the studios opened with 10 members of staff.
A year later and he has now got bookings into 2011 and employs 16 full time and 10 part time employees. He hopes to expand to Gloucester by Christmas and to Exeter within a year.
He said: "When the recession hit I thought it was the right time for me.
"A lot of the rental costs for premises in Cheltenham dropped and I was able to get a nice deal.
"There's a lot of homegrown talent in Cheltenham when it comes to make up artists, hairdressers and photography. We're helping to keep that talent in the town and stop people leaving for London."
Cheltenham Borough Council no longer offers the grants, which it has replaced with the Kick Start scheme, which offers training to people who set up business after April 1 this year.
Andrew North, chief executive of Cheltenham Borough Council, said: "The Business Pride commercial rental scheme was a fantastic idea from our economic development team and I am delighted to see it making such a positive impact upon the local community. This initiative again highlights Cheltenham Borough Council's commitment to helping fledgling businesses to grow and realise their potential during difficult circumstances.
"With the support that has been and continues to be available, Cheltenham has the established track record as being the place to come and start your enterprise."

Fellow band member Ronan Keating is already a judge on the Australian X Factor and now Keith Duffy would like to follow in his footsteps.
"Listen, if anybody ever wanted to pay me a lump of money to go to Australia I'd be there. Of course I'd be interested. It's a great gig he's after getting out there. "It's a huge show, it's the biggest production that's ever been put together for a show in Australia. It's going be massive. "People must remember that Ro's been in the music business since '93. We all had six or seven years out, but Ro went off and did other things in the music business. A change is as good as a rest they say, so I think he will actually enjoy it."

The group - who were left stunned when their 33-year-old bandmate died last October - are to play 12 UK concerts early next year in support of their current album 'Brother', despite previously admitting they were unsure if they could play again without Stephen.
Singer Ronan Keating said: "There was a time when the lads and I didn't know whether we would ever get back up on stage together again.
"We just didn't know whether we could do it as a four-piece. We played three tracks live at the Royal Albert Hall a couple of weeks ago and the reception was just unbelievable. We all came off stage buzzing, knowing that we had the full support of the fans, and it all just suddenly felt so right. We can't wait to get back on the road together."

The album, released around the world today, has already raced to No 1 on the British albums chart.
It's a spot reached by all but one of the veteran boy band's previous albums, showing that despite splitting up in 2000 and reuniting in 2007, and outgrowing their band name, Boyzone's fans have remained loyal.
The group, a four-piece since Gately's death from natural causes in October, plan to see how fans respond to Brother before making plans for the future, Ronan Keating says.
Keating will sing alongside Mikey Graham, Shane Lynch and Keith Duffy, in a lineup that told OK! Magazine they were on the brink of a split following the death of Gately.
"We'll see what happens, see how we feel on the road out there without him," Keating says.
"It's hard, we don't know what it's going to be like to perform until we perform.
"We've never performed as a four-piece, we still haven't yet. We've been in the studio but that's a little easier to deal with. Actually going out on stage as a four-piece will be very strange."
Gately's death is "the hardest thing I've ever known", Keating says.

The Irish boyband release Brothers, their first collection of entirely new songs since 1998, on March 8.
"It's all completely original material. There are no covers on it and there's not really any ballads on it either," he told Digital Spy. "It's a whole new sound and it's a whole new dynamic for Boyzone."
Duffy, who reprises his role as chef Ciaran McCarthy on Coronation Street next week, also revealed that Gately was heavily involved in shaping the album's direction.
"Stephen was a big part of picking the tunes that are on the album. I think Stephen would really want us to continue and to release the songs and the album," he said.
However, Duffy also admitted that the group have yet to make any long-term plans.
"I don't know what's going to happen after the album," he said. "Whether we tour again and whether we perform together again, I really don't know. For now we're going to release this album as a tribute to Stephen.
"I'm on Corrie for six months as well so I'm not going to be available for any kind of promotion. I'm just going to let the album work itself - if it's a hit, it's a hit, and if it isn't, it isn't."
