I am a professional that specializes in but am not limited to headshot, swimsuit, fashion, fantasy, and theme photography. I have over 10 years of experience behind the camera and am a perfectionist that demands nothing less than the best from myself, my subjects, and my work. Telling a story through images is my passion. Contact me if you are interested in collaborating on a photo shoot - whether a seasoned model or starting up.
Jean-Paul Chreky has produced and directed several film
projects and commercials. These include the award-winning
films, “The Shell” and “Triton”. Some of his other producing
credits include films such as “Milia”, “Twilight Angel”, “The
Fury’s Prey”, “Everything”, and “Mon Amour”. Jean-Paul has
worked for Buena Vista Pictures, responsible for advertising,
publicity, and promotions of their films and with Walt Disney Pictures on “Glory Road” as a press junket organizer and assistant to producer Jerry Bruckheimer (“Pirates of the Caribbean”, “Pearl Harbor”, “Bad Boys”, “Top Gun”).
Jean-Paul grew up in the Washington, D.C. suburb of Potomac, Maryland and spent summers in Southern France. He had many interests as a child, earning his black belt in Tae Kwon Do and scuba certification, playing the violin and clarinet, and adoring sports. Jean-Paul’s fascination with nature led him to major in Biology at the University of North Carolina - Wilmington. But it was also here, where his love for films began to blossom and he decided to pursue filmmaking rather than medical school.
Jean-Paul graduated at the top of his class with an MFA in
Motion Picture Production from the University of Miami and
with an A academic average in both his science and fine art
degrees. His graduate thesis film, “The Shell”, won four of
seven possible awards at the 2005 Canes Film Festival. These include Best Picture, Best Director, Best Editor, and Best Music. In 2004, Jean-Paul’s graduate first-year film, “Triton”, won the Jury Award, Best Director Award, and Best Cinematography Award at the same event. He is the first University of Miami MFA film student to ever win the Best Director Award for both the thesis film and the first-year film.
Jean-Paul has instructed film production classes at the University of Miami and American University as well as filmmaking and acting classes at a private academy. Today, Jean-Paul continues to assist in the development of a
multitude of productions by frequently working as a producer,
director, and assistant director.
