Let's start with the important things shall we? I'm a photographer from the great city of Cleveland, Ohio.
I've been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I started out wandering the streets of Collinwood (my neighborhood) with a Polaroid camera. I found photography to be a form of meditation. It balanced my introverted nature with my desire to explore. I could be out in the world, in a sea of people, but never feel like I was forced to interact. The camera did the impossible. It brought me closer to the world, but also provided a shield from it. It's the one thing I've always come back to, no matter what new things I pick up over the years. So here I am.
When I first got started, all I really wanted was to have my photography published or used somewhere. I didn't care if it was a blurb in a local paper, an album cover or a poster in a coffee shop. As long as I had that something, it meant I had left a mark somewhere. Of course, as is custom for artists and humanity in general, enough is never enough. Now I'd like to do something a little more grand. Whether I make a living or not, I'd like to make a splash rather than a ripple. I'd also like to have you along for the ride.
I'm Christopher. Nice to meet you.
