My name is Christopher Baldwin and I am a full time professional photographer in Okinawa, Japan. I have been in Oki now for seven years. I am originally from Trenton, NJ and no plans on going back.
I am a highly passionate about photography. I love teaching new photographers photography just as much as I like taking the photos. Since the rise of digital cameras it is easier than ever to become a photographer. But it does take a certain skill and artistic edge to be above the average shooter. Don’t give into the photographer who just went out and bought $8,000 worth of gear and calls himself a photographer.
I shoot on the intent to provide the model with quality photos that he/she can use to help promote their modeling career. My job is to make you look your best.
Before a shoot I like to meet with my client and get an idea that of what kind of shoot is going to happen. I will not just take a client to a random field, beach, house or street. I want to have a plan. I am shooting for an artistic reason.
