Chris Santi was born and raised in the northern suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. A self proclaimed "computer geek" since the age of 18, now in his 30's, Chris has grown his self taught hobby of photography into a passion for the art. Along with his brilliant eye for photography, Chris is also an amazing self taught Photoshop wizard with a keen eye for design.
He has photographed over 400 models from around the world including "on-location" shoots in the Bahamas, Jamaica, California, and Florida. He has been printed in multiple online magazines as well as print. He has also photographed some of the worlds top glamour models from Playboy Playmates to Penthouse Pets.
In addition to his model list, Chris has also work along some of the top glamour photographers in the country learning their tips and tricks. "Spending a week learning from some of the best photographers in the industry does tremendous things for your work. Being able to retain that knowledge is the key." Some of those photographers have been: Mike Prado, Todd Plinke, Mark Mozzier, Kenny Roland and Matthew Cousins. "I actually roomed with Matthew for some time and learned a shit ton from that old guy ! "
As former CIO to Teaseum Bikini, Chris' passion for the industry has been an eye opening one. His separation with the company allowed him to see a certain need for structure in the industry. He's determined to make modeling & photography affordable, fun, safe, and lucrative for everyone involved in the business. One of his past creations, AllStarzz, was aimed to do just that. Chris approached two of the top photographers in the industry, Mark Mozzier of Imagezz.com and Todd Plinke of In8 Photography, with this idea and AllStarzz.com was created. With many successful events under his belt in only a years time, Chris created the platform to create a successful and lucrative 'model' to any non workshop hosted event. With AllStarzz.com partners not agreeing on certain aspects of the business, as quickly as it was being built, it just as quickly fizzled.
Now currently serving as Chief Technology Officer and Partner for The Paradise Challenge, Chris has created the entire infrastructure allowing the company to become the worlds premier photoshop event in the world. Bringing the latest technologies within a limited budget Chris has transformed the look and feel of the website, registration, and social aspect for The Paradise challenge. Dream big, be big.
Chris currently resides in Hollywood, CA.
