About Me

I have been the co-producer of one of the top burlesque shows in Los Angeles titled Peepshow Menagerie since 2008 and during the pandemic we have expanded to doing online shows where we've effectively become a TV show and well as rebranded our stage talk show into a new panel program called Peepshow & Tell. We have also produced the Los Angeles chapter of Naked Girls Reading. I am sometimes the co-host of The Burlesque Podcast, a podcast about the burlesque industry when we have time to put one together. I have been lucky to interview many of the top stars in the field as well as photograph many of the people we interview from Kitten De Ville to the late Tempest Storm.

I am the co-producer of the annual Burlesque Hall Of Fame Las Vegas Pin-Up Safari since its second year in 2007. It is a great event where we take busloads of photographers and burlesque models to different "secret locations" around Las Vegas. It's always a great time for everyone and a better way of passing time in the Vegas heat than...well, just sitting around baking in the Vegas heat.

For several years, I was the art director of Bachelor Pad Magazine which is a retro-style Pin-Up Magazine reminiscent of the digest sized pin-up and humor magazines of the 1950's thru late 1960's. Every once in a while you'll find my own photography or artwork in there as well. Apparently I'll be shooting for them again soon as well as producing something for them I can't talk about quite yet. Before that I was the art assistant on two major international magazines in the last 14 years that I prefer not to mention publicly (as I try to keep my professional worlds separate).

Before (and during) that I was the creator/editor of No-Fi "Magazine", a music and entertainment mag that got a little notice in its time, which also led to doing our own online radio show: No-Fi "Radio". It's basically the thing that opened a lot of doors for me so while it's probably largely forgotten, I'm quite proud of it.

My influences: are all over the place. Russ Meyer, Helmut Newton, Harold Lloyd, Dan DeCarlo's pre-Archie Comics Pin-Up Art, Bill Wenzel, Art Frahm's paintings, Men's Magazines from the 50s and 60s, Mad Magazine, Sci-Fi & Horror Movies and Comics from the 50s thru 80s, Old magazine and album covers, etc, etc... Basically, I am very influenced by retro style and layout, but I am open to do a lot of different types of shoots. I especially love shoots that involve lots of color and/or humor and irony.

Stating the obvious, I'm looking for interesting people to take photos of. Guys or gals are fine. My specialty is Pin-Up Photography, but I'm open to most everything.

As I tend to be very busy, if you like my work here and would like to work with me, write me here (or on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/chrisbeyond) and let me know so we can find a date that works best for us. I tend to only do short rounds of e-mail introductions once or twice a year so it's best if you write to me.

It's probably easiest to find me on facebook at:
