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.

My joy is photographing people: curious and adorable children, productive teens evolving into young adults and active seniors throughout the world. Focusing on skills, educational processes and community involvement gives me an understanding of global cultures. Through my travels,I have focused on landscapes, ethnic cultures and flowers. Climbing temples in Cambodia,waterfalls in Argentina,ruins at Machu Picchu in Peru and sleeping on boats in Vietnam, visiting villages for micro-credit help for women in India, participating in archaeological digs in Majorca and celebrating regattas in Venice have enhanced the photographic adventures I have had. My previous career as an actress in theater and film prepared me to communicate with ease behind the camera capturing images of all ages for assignments in magazines,public relations and corporate advertising. Through stock agencies, non-profits, advertising and textbooks companies, my photography has been seen for over 20 years on billboards, books and in brochures.
I am associated with the following stock photo agencies: PhotoEditinc.com,Getty Images(Stone and Photographer’s Choice),Stock Connection and Alamy.com.
In 2010 I formed a virtual agency with two other women with educational images — EducationImagery.com .

Some people see things in a different light: Mitchell Kearney for one. It’s a gift nourished by innate curiosity and honed by experience and training. He sees what is there and something more: the intangible spirit of the thing. More than a good likeness of a subject, Mitchell elicits an image that resonates much like a sustained musical tone of a double bassoon or cello. He’s traveled the world over for love and inspiration, each and every step of which has prepares him supremely for what life brings.
