Chris, born in the early 70's and raised in Brooklyn, New York is best known for his quick wit and over-the-top personality. His adolescent years mirrored a page torn from the movie A Bronx Tale. Stickball, BMX bikes, and East Side Kids style of adventures provided Chris with a unique perspective of life which would lay the ground work and later fuel his passion for photography.

Raised in a family of hobbyist photographers, Chris became intriqued at an early age. In fact, it was Christmas of 1982 after Santa strategically placed a Kodak Disk film camera under the tree, that Chris caught a glimpse of the creative stronghold photography would eventually have on his life. However, it wasn't until spring of 1998 when he received his first legit camera, a Nikon F3, that Chris started to take his photography seriously.

Chris spent the majority of his 20's serving our Country in the United States Marine Corps. Through a tremendous amount of trial and error, Chris utilized that Nikon to document his deployments, and solidify his shooting style.

After 8 years of honorable service, Chris separated from the Marines and quickly made his mark as an internationally published automotive photographer. It was during those earlier years that Chris learned the importance of lighting and how to manipulate it.

These days Chris has transitioned back to landscape and lifestyle photography. He is passionate about adventure sports and because of which spends most of his free time in Wyoming and Utah.

Whether infiltrating ground zero to document the 9/11 tragedy, or wading through waist deep in snow in frigid temperatures for the perfect sunset, Chris relies on his childhood upbringing and Marine Corps mindset to express his unique perspective.

Chris is currently based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and he selectively takes on new clients and projects that peak both his curiousity and creativity. For more information, please contact Chris directly from any of the links below.
