Chris is a cinematographer
based in Los Angeles.
Whether it’s commercial, narrative, or experimental, Chris always strives to discover the soul of a story, and to develop a unique language of cinematic images that articulate the Director's vision.
Though he is at home shooting on 35mm and 16mm film or any digital format, the tools are not as exciting as the story being told. Although knowing the latest technology is an important and enjoyable part of the craft, Chris aims for simplicity whenever possible.
Raised in the Midwest, Chris began shooting at a young age. After getting a BA in Film Studies from Purdue University, he went on to complete his MFA in Cinematography at Chapman University. He is based in Los Angeles, but travels often for work and adventure.
