Thank you for having a look at Christopher Photographic now located in Iwakuni, Japan.
I am a native Las Vegan, born and raised, and love the exciting desert city that never sleeps; however, opportunities arise in ones life that must be grasped and taken headstrong without reverence to past thought processes. Carpe Diem! De Brevitate Vitae!- However you would want to express it, I had to take the reigns and take advantage of a rare and great opportunity and move with my lovely wife to Iwakuni, Japan.
I have a lot of passions in my life as I like to “mix-it-up” and keep busy with one thing or another. But photography is one of the oldest passions of mine. I remember buying my first camera, a Polaroid Instamatic, with my first paycheck as a teen. I was taking pictures of everything from the family cats to me “pumping iron” with an early 80’s perm hairdo. I took photography classes in high school and worked for a commercial photography company right out of school.
Duty called and I joined the U.S. Marines and served during the Desert Storm conflict. At least, I had a good excuse to get rid of the perm! And although I took my camera along to document as much as I could, my photography waned as a war, a return to “normal” life, kids and a new career ensued.
With my mom’s remarriage several years ago, as well as other signs from the universe, my interest in photography was sparked once again. Since then I have invested heavily with more than just money, but literally with “blood, sweat and tears” to bring you a creative, fun and artistic approach to capturing those fleeting moments in your life.
I’m looking forward to making some new friends and creating some incredible images with you!
