Process = Story
+ I’m Chris. I’m a dad, a storyteller, a 2003 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and a Veteran (Captain) of the United States Army. I have chosen the visual medium of photography as my vehicle for storytelling. I also write stories instigated by my photos – creating photo essays or, if you will, comic books. I am available for one-off shoots, long-term projects & 1-on-1 workshops.
education: West Point – 2003
major: Art, Philosophy & Literature

+ I love it when people allow me to document their life, unguarded. I feel a great responsibility to portray them in a way that accurately reflects who they are and what their PROCESS entails.

+ As a photographer, my PROCESS is shoot first & make sense of it later. It’s a wonderful feeling to have developed relationships because of my skill with a camera. But I strive to be more than a button pusher. I rely on my vision, skill & life experience to craft a story. We humans are hard-wired for story and its a great way to connect. Stories help us to be understood and stories help us to understand.
+ A successful story is a combination of authority, emotion and logic with a purpose to inspire, inform and/or delight. You’ve got a story, Whether the end state is awareness, fundraising, sales or for fun…let me help you tell that story.
