About Me

Photographer based between Toronto and Detroit.  Always eager to work with creative, passionate people and have been shooting Art/ Fashion photography for over 25 years.  Prefer artistic nudes but I also shoot portraits, fashion, erotic nudes & architecture.

Always working but still willing to take on TFP/CD assignments, feel free to inquire.

Currently finishing a book project. All Models who participate in my artistic projects are also eligible to receive a financial return for their participation.  If you have any questions on how that works please drop me a line and I will respond.

I do get paying assignments from time to time and on those occasions Models get paid accordingly.  I have a fairly lucrative payment plan for my Art photography so please inquire about this if you are interested.

About me:
Christopher Cushman was born and raised in Detroit Michigan. Growing up in Detroit in the 60's and 70's gave him a unique perspective on people which is central to and has informed his work to this day. He received his degree in Design and Illustration from Ferris State University. He began his career in photography during the 80's attracted to portraiture as a means to understand the human condition. Christopher has had showings at various galleries in Detroit and at Toronto's AGO and has been extensively published. In 2004 he placed third in Wooloo's Master Picks out of a field of 24 finalists for his work entitled FIERCE! Christopher has specialized in dance photography and has had the honor of photographing dancers from over 50 dance companies including Alvin Ailey, Garth Fagen in New York and Toronto's Ballet Creole and Kashedance. In addition Christopher along with his friend Kevin Ormsby have published a book on Dance in 2008 entitled "Dance Through Life" and is completing two new volumes, one of portraiture and a documentary piece entitled FIERCE! Being Black, Being Gay. Christopher has resided in Toronto for the last 15 years.  To see more of my work please go to my website: or my blog:
