Based in Virginia, yet traveling across the world covering many facets of photography, Cristopher Schafer combined his passion for visual arts and graphics with his equal love for all things technology-related. His first introduction to the art began from a hobby in graphic design and retouching. In 2008 his curiosity and passion to create led him to explore the world of photography.
In 2010, Cristopher left a career in technology to divulge himself into his photography. New to the art, he worked to maintain the same level of excellence as seasoned photographers allowing himself to experiment and create unique imagery that is not only visually stunning, but serve to tell a story. Along with long term friend, mentor, and fellow photographer Dexter D. Cohen, Cristopher learned to create style and consistency with his work, thus raising the bar for every project. Being consistent with his sense of composition and understanding of light allowed him to begin delivering powerful imagery for several publications. Later that year, he grasped filmmaking and decided to engage it more directing an array of visuals and campaigns.
Attention to detail, artistic sensibility, and fast work ethic have landed Cristopher many high-profile opportunities and he began traveling across the globe in 2011 with DJ Jazzy Jeff covering their journey through a series called Vinyl Destination. This exposed Cristopher to many new worlds of photography enabling him to experiment with multiple styles and honing in on technique. Cristopher continues to travel with DJ Jazzy Jeff filming and capturing stills while also serving as the Media Director for his brand.
As an artist he continues to capture and edit his personal work from pre-production to post editing and delivery. From the beginning, as an artist of many trades he chose to set the bar high for himself and the proof of that is in his growing portfolio of work.
