My name is Chris Kendell and I am a photographer who has been working (either full time or freelance) since completing my education in Professional Photography in 1988.
I currently live in the Sierra Mountains (near Kirkwood Ski Resort) with my Make-up Artist/Stylist Significant Other, Sandi and our assorted critters - consisting of five indoor cats, one outdoor only cat, and dozens of wild critters that come to feed each day. For example, we currently have a 3rd generation Skunk (resident female) who visits each night, sometimes with her kids in tow, a few Raccoons and Ringtails that also come by each night to eat the cat food, and dozens of deer that appear throughout the day and night for water and a bit of corn or veggies we put out. Add to that the numerous birds, lizards, Fox, Coyote, the occasional Black Bear, Cougar, and Bobcat that traipse through our property and the incredible view we have and we think we have it pretty great here in the mountains.
Sandi and I are former Professional Singer/Actors/Models. I say former, because we are currently not doing anything in the entertainment field - but if you have ever met an actor, you know, they are never far from the business.
We feel that our creative backgrounds help us when working with other creative people like models and actors - as we have been there and have a wealth of experience to share. I think it makes me a much better photographer than if I hadn't been in front of the camera or on stage. I feel I understand what the model may be going through, how uncomfortable it can be, and how to help them relax - and I hope that comes through in our sessions.
I don't currently accept many TFCD/TFP sessions - but if you are exceptional or have a project in mind that is compelling, interesting, creatively fulfilling, or something fun - contact me and I'll see what we can do together.
With years of experience as a Quality Assurance Expert in the High Tech Industry my motto is "Good enough - isn't". My philosophical view of art is that "The value of Art is in its impact!"
I hope this little bio gives you a little insight into who I am. If you need to know more, just ask.
