A great conversation requires two people, talking and listening. I think a great photograph requires the same.My approach to photography is not to tell people what to do or how to do it. Instead, I work to create environments where people feel like their most authentic selves - and then capture what happens.My portfolio contains successful campaigns from clients including Pfizer Pharmaceutical, Yahoo, Toyota Mobility Foundation, The New York Times, Time Magazine, BASF, Doner, Allegheny Health Network, Case Western Reserve University, Dear World, Cleveland Magazine. IBM Magazine, Inc. Magazine, St. Vincent Charity Hospital and Harvard Ed Magazine.
I am an advertising lifestyle, portraiture, and editorial photographer based out of Vancouver, Canada. I fancy dramatic lighting resulting in strong, moody portraiture with a heightened sense of reality. I am a sucker for good storytelling, and I use photography as a vehicle to tell stories that are important to me or my clients.When I'm not shooting commercial work I can be found hiking, driving, or flying to photograph some of the world's most beautiful sceneries.
I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and raised by a widowed mother (Dad died when I was 8), with two other sisters, in a small town in a region called Ribeira Valley. I left home at the age of 15 searching for a better life. At the age of 22, I decided to move to the USA to further my education and improve myself as a human being.I have won several awards as a photographer. My work has been exhibited at a few museums, it has been published in a handful of magazines, and used by quite a few brands ads. However, I don’t think that defines who I am.I have won several awards as a photographer and my work has been published in a handful of magazines, however, I don’t think that defines who I am. What defines me is the fact that I am a hopeless believer in kindness, no matter how warped today’s world appears. I am also a failed-by-never-trying comedian, and dream of having a French Bulldog—they automatically trigger my “talking-to-a-baby” voice whenever I see one.I also love watching movies while dissecting the light set up and color grading used in those movies.Footb… alright, Americans… Soccer is a passion!

I'm a photographer with 12 years experience in the industry + a love for fashion, endurance sports and the active life… With a background in fashion photography, I now work mostly within the active lifestyle and sportswear industry. I live in London and love the culture of a big city but you're also quite likely to find me cycling up a mountain, swimming in a lake or racing a triathlon. I love to combine these passions into a unique style and area of expertise within my work.So if you need a photographer with a great eye who also understands how a cycling kit should fit, or what a downward dog should look like, let’s talk!
Chris’ interest in photography started with his sister’s camera and a sixth grade trip to Washington DC. After getting a taste of the big life on a greyhound bus, the road trips with camera in hand have continued to be a passionate part of Chris’ life. Wise choice! The road went thru Clemson, SC before traveling down I-85 to the Art Institute of Atlanta. A small business sprouted and Chris’ initial success in Architecture photography included a photo spread in Interior Design Magazine’s Top Ten.His road took a u-turn when it led him to Sports Illustrated. They featured his NBA photography in a 12-page photo only spread and his business exploded. The photography road has never been the same with stops at the Grand Canyon, Oval Office, Super Bowl, the Acropolis, Indy 500, Sydney Harbour, NBA Finals, NY Skyscrapers, Las Ramblas, World Series and on any beach he can get his hands (with camera) on. His photography road now includes a diversity of subjects from architecture to athletes, from children to CEOs, and from fine art to resorts.
