"When I embark on capturing a moment, my aim is to leverage existing light and color to convey the emotions I am experiencing. My ultimate goal is to evoke strong emotions through my images." Christopher
I am a self-taught photographer whose passion for the craft ignited at a very early age. During my teenage years, I worked with black and white film and was fortunate to have parents who nurtured my interest by providing camera equipment and constructing a darkroom for me. I predominantly use either a Canon R7 or Canon R5 mirrorless camera paired with a Canon 600mm f/4L IS lens attached to a gimbal head and ground pod when capturing my images. Emphasizing low angles, I strive for optimal subject separation and bokeh in my images.
