For me, photography is all about capturing authentic moments of human connection. Add some beautiful light and the right composition, and it’s magical.
I’ve been shooting professionally for almost 20 years and can’t imagine doing anything else. The best part of being a photographer is getting to work with other creative professionals and forging connections with my subjects. I bring a documentary approach to my lifestyle and portrait work, and over the years have learned that the best results come from an environment of trust and collaboration. I love the process of visual story-telling, the problem solving, and the teamwork that goes into successfully communicating the deeper ideas behind a brand. This approach has served me well, as I’ve been fortunate enough to develop long standing relationships with numerous national clients, both directly and through their agencies.
Whether the project calls for a full scale production, just me with a camera bag, or something in-between, I have found in the end it always comes around to capturing genuine human moments in a natural, uncontrived way. That’s what I do - I hope you enjoy my work and maybe someday I’ll get the chance to help you tell your story, too. -Chris
