It was the late 1990s and the first roll of film the then, teenage Chris shot was a complete disaster. What made him determined to keep picking up the camera was the idea of composing people and things in that little rectangular viewfinder in a way that could tell a story, communicate a message, explore and express ideas, and impact other people. It was that intrigue that fuelled his desire to become a photographer.
Chris formally studied at both NSCAD University and NSCC’s photography departments followed by work as a production assistant for commercial shooters in Halifax, Toronto and New York.
In 2007, he started working under his own name, taking on advertising, editorial, fashion, corporate and private work.
He strongly believes that personal work helps strengthen creative and conceptual thinking and is an invaluable and inseparable part of who he is as a photographer.
