BIO

Chris has always been an artist. As a child, he was always drawing and sketching, a hobby that repeatedly got him in trouble all through grade school. He leaning heavily into music starting in his teens and had picked up a camera with artistic intent by the end of high school.

Turning down the photojournalism course at S.C.A.D., Chris opted to learn on his own; A process that would take far longer than a 4-year degree but would evolve into a style that is far more unique, complex and all his own. His photo work often juxtaposes the lines of fine art and journalism. Known for his cinematic lighting, and creative portraiture, Chris’s images often aim to capture an element of realism and also create narrative and wonder –– like a dream that you can’t quite remember the fine details of.

Chris is also a published editorial writer as well as writing his own narrative works and poetry. Forever curious, eager to learn and an aspiring polymath, you can always expect that he’s doing or learning something new. When he isn't behind the camera or penning words he can be found exploring the outdoors, tattooing a friend, or cooking a meal at home with his wife.
