For Chris, the past 20 years have always been about the people. His true passion is to connect with individuals to capture images of people from every part of the spectrum. Lighting and location skills were learned from coming up through the assisting ranks in commercial photography. Although the Midwest is his home he has been privileged to travel extensively on assignment.
After 20 years of chasing the light, Chris continues to be excited about meeting that next person, challenging that next environment, and at the end of the day, being grateful for the opportunity.
