About Me

My name is Cherif Fortin. I am a Chicago-based photographer, illustrator, and graphic designer.

As a photographer, I specialize in advertising, editorial, and portrait work, and my client list includes such notables as NBC Television, UPN Television, Nielsen Media Research, Abelson-Taylor Inc, Accenture, Arthur Anderson LLP, BASF Corporation, Delnor Hospital, Duff & Phelps, HUB International, and RSM Mcgladrey.

As an illustrator, my digital and traditional artwork has been commissioned by publishers the world over, including Random House, Genesis Press, Harlequin Books, Kensington Books, Dorchester Publishing, Penguin Group (Putnam), and Medallion Press. My work can be seen on the covers of millions of books in North America, South America, Europe and Japan.

I am also one half of the creative team known as Fortin & Sanders (along with mentor and famed photographer/artist Lynn Sanders), writing and illustrating romance fiction. My credits include Passion’s Blood, Medallion Press, 1998 & 2008, Ellie and the Elven King (with Helen Rosburg), Medallion Press, 2002, and There be Dragons (with Heather Graham), Medallion Press, 2009. My illustrations have been published in the pages of Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, the National Enquirer, Art & Business News, Publisher’s Weekly, London Times, Chicago Sun Times and in the Passion’s Flame (2002) and Men of Romance (2005) calendars.

Prior to my career in imaging, I was employed as a full-time stunt performer, fire fighter, and leading romance cover model. I live in the Chicago land area with my wife and three children.

I sum up my creative philosophy with the conviction that all art is artifice; created to enhance a desired effect. Whether the tool at hand is a camera, a paint brush, or a computer, what matters ultimately is the final image and how well it communicates the intended effect.
