About MeHey! How's it goin'? Come on in, let me take your coat--weather's been crazy, huh? Can I get you anything? Alright then, let's get started.
Well, my name's Chris (*wave*) and I'm pizza-lovin' goofball with perfectionist tendencies and a not-so-far-off resemblance to Peter Parker (Spiderman > Batman).
Traditionally a nature and travel photographer of western NY state, I have since switched gears having moved to the big city (there are more people than trees around here!) bringing my skills to documentary-style fine-art portraiture by creating meaningful, naturally beautiful photographs with good people.
My goal is: by the end of our shoot we'll end up with beautiful images you'll want to show off to everyone--especially your family and friends. My favorite styles usually convey quiet, thoughtful moments where true personalities, emotions and stories are revealed. Sound awesome? Then let's do this!
Being this is not my main gig, I'm free to experiment and be more creative without being limited by any "standards." So let's break some rules, shall we?
