About Me

PARIS-TRAINED San Francisco/San Jose/Los Angeles/China - based PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND FILMMAKER WITH A BACHELOR OF ARTS IN CINEMA AND PHOTOGRAPHY

Best of College Photography Honorable Mention
Best of Photography Finalist

Former assistant to some top fashion photographers in Paris, France, including Pierre Chanloup and assistant to some of the top commercial photographers, including Ed McDonald, here in the US.

As a photographer, I shoot fashion, beauty, headshots, portraits, wedding, food, events and others. I do use different kinds of cameras, 35mm, medium format, large format (4x5) and digital, depending on the concept. One thing about me is that I also specialize in children's portraits.

Whenever I do a photography assignment, my objective is to capture reality, but at the same time, create a fantasy. For me. it is the blur between the two that creates the best image.

As a filmmaker, my vision is to create reality but make it hyper-reality. That means it should have some sense of reality to it that everyone can relate to, yet make it hyper-reality in order to make the story bigger than life.  I have done a lot of shorts and am currently developing a feature film for production.

I am right now building a new portfolio with a different style, so I am looking for makeup artists, hairstylists and fashion stylists and designers to collaborate with in exchange for images they can use for your portfolio. As for models, I am pretty choosy, and a lot of models on this site do not meet the requirements I need for my concepts. If I do get to see a model whom I like from this site, I do send them a message about my interest, but so far, most of them are pretty flaky. A bunch of them have not shown up for a shoot that I planned for days and spent time on preproduction for, so I do not feel the models here are professional enough. A lot of them have wasted my time. The communication between me and them was no problem, but when it was time to do the shoot, they just decided not to show up. They did not even call to tell me that they were not gonna make it. I much prefer the models from the modeling agencies, now I never had any problem with them showing up even for a TFP. Now we know why they have agents and are working in the industry because they are professionals.

PLEASE DO NOT INQUIRE ABOUT DOING TFP WITH ME. IF YOU ARE A MODEL WHO WANTS TO WORK WITH ME, MY RATE IS $200 FOR THREE LOOKS, MAKEUP IS EXTRA. FOR SURE, THE IMAGES THAT COME OUT OF YOUR SHOOT WITH ME ARE NOT GOING TO BE CHEESY, BUT THEY ARE GOING TO BE MORE COMMERCIAL THAT IS GOING TO APPEAL MORE TO ART BUYERS SUCH AS AD AGENCIES WHO HIRE MODELS. THOUGH I DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET A MODELING AGENCY OR A MAGAZINE OR AN AD AGENCY TO REPRESENT OR TO HIRE YOU, BUT IT WOULD AT LEAST HELP. MODELING IS VERY COMPETITIVE. EVEN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MODELS DO NOT MAKE IT AS MODELS, UNLESS IT IS A PORNO, AND NOW THAT IS A DIFFERENT STORY. ALSO SOME OF THE SHOTS WILL BE DONE WITH A MEDIUM FORMAT FILM, GIVING SOME OF YOUR IMAGES WITH THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION.


---WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY---

Profotos Staff Evaluation:

Intriguing lighting, dramatic angles, and compelling composition are just some of the attributes which you will see within the porfolio of professional photographer, Christopher Revon. Several of the images included in Christopher's portfolio are perfect examples of the flawless execution of traditional compositional "rules" and elements. Along with these traditionally composed images, there are many others in Christopher's portfolio which break the "rules" and belong to a completely different class of photographic composition.

The image on this page is a great example of Christopher's mastery of compositional skills in photography. Within this image are several elements which work together to produce a very strong photograph. We will attempt to emphasize these elements by methodically critiquing this powerful image: the dim lighting falling on the subject adds a sense of mystery and intrigue to this image, as it creates a very "soft" composition, which allows the shadows to fall off into darkness; the specular highlight on the subject's nose creates a point of "focus" where the viewer's eyes may begin to explore the image; analogous color is employed within the image which adds greatly to the photograph's mystery and mood, and finally; the composition is classic, with a tight crop of the subject's face, which is perfectly positioned within the frame to allow it room to "look into" on the right side of the frame.

Although we do not usually go into this type of descriptive detail while writing reviews of photographers' works on Profotos, we feel this is the best way to emphasize just how talented Christopher is in his photography. This is the type of critiquing our staff employs behind the scenes of Profotos, each time we consider a photographer for inclusion on the site.

As we stated in the first paragraph of this review, you will find several examples of this type of "traditional" composition within Christopher's portfolio. You will also see photographs in Christopher's portfolio which break out of the traditions and rules of photography. These non-traditional images are very striking, incredible images which are sure to have in impact upon your vision and understanding of photographic style.

Be sure to take your time while browsing through Christopher Revon's portfolio - incredible images like these take time to explore and appreciate!

I am building a new photography portfolio and a demo reel as a filmmaker, so I am always looking for actors and models who want to collaborate in exchange for images for her portfolio and/or footage for her reel.
