I have been involved in photography for many years. My love for taking photos started years ago when my dad use to take us fishing up in the Eastern Sierras.
The places we visited were full of beauty. Scenic areas full of streams, lakes and majestic mountains.
We were able to also view the different seasons.
From spring through summer and into fall. Many years we also got to see the winter snow. This love for nature's beauty and the lack of knowledge of how to catch fish is what turned me on to photography.
As the year passed, scenery was my favorite. I started to photograph people, sports and cars.
Nowadays, it's a little of everything.
We are just getting to the point where we are starting to see our dreams come true.
Our business is starting to grow.
We are still small, and with that we can offer quality personal service at a great
rate. Much lower than the competition.
We see it as much more than just a business, we see it as making people happy and building long-lasting relationships.
My name is Chris, and I'm the picture taker. I wanted to start a business that I have a passion for. Something I can enjoy and grow with for many years to come. My thoughts were to blend together a wounderful skill and hobbie and make something happen with it.
My first photos were of scenery, and then of people. People didn't always cooperate or just didn't want their photos taken. Friends and family soon became the next subjects. Going on vacations and trips, I became the unofficial picture-taker. My next passion in photography was cars. Works of art that were rolling down the street. Then the passion of speed. Cars racing at speeds over 180mph. Magnificent colors, speed and sound. My interest came back to people after a friend asked me to shoot a simple wedding. I had a really good time. Then I thought of a friend that was teaching acting for many years. What do actors need?? How about headshots? If I can shoot cars going 180mph, I should be able to do photos for actors sitting in a chair and smiling. I now enjoy shooting all types of photos. With every photo is a new challenge and learning experience.
