Hi! If you didn’t guess, I’m Christopher, a photographer from Cleveland, Ohio. I also lived in New York City for most of my adult life before coming back home. I’d like to think the city influenced a great deal of who I am. It taught me hustle. It helped me live some dreams. It was and is a living piece of art, and it’s still my favorite place in the world.
In professional terms, I’ve done it all. Weddings, music photography, album covers, cityscapes for print features. Some folks believe that it’s necessary to focus on one thing exclusively, and I just don’t think that’s the case. All the different types of photography help hone your craft in different ways. Flexibility is always in style. Ultimately, I’m at the point in my life where I shoot what I want, how I want. I’m a storyteller. I’m just looking for all the different ways I can make that happen, or help someone else make that happen.
I’ve been shooting since before I can really remember. A Polaroid One Touch gifted from my sister started it all. Through all the changes in my life and new hobbies I picked up, I always came back to my camera. I still have an affinity for old school film photography. I still develop my own film and scan it in. There’s a texture, a feel that you just can’t duplicate, no matter how hard you try. I’m sure you’ll see some film sprinkled throughout my work, but I do shoot digital as well when the vision fits. I’m in love with the art form. I’d shoot with a pinhole camera and be just as happy. Slightly less productive, but happy.
