My name is Chris.
I was born in Los Angeles to immigrant parents from Costa Rica and it is to them that I owe everything.

My understanding of what real work ethic is, and the importance of sacrifice and determination, comes from the love, patience, and teachings of my parents.
I graduated high school from a performing and fine arts academy, and went straight into studying animation for the next three years. Soon I was offered an internship with the Walt Disney Company that I couldn't pass up and left my college degree, half completed...
I worked in Orlando for almost a year and created some of the fondest memories and deepest connections. If you ever want to hear about my experiences, I never pass up the opportunity to share those stories.
Needless to say, I was never the same again.
After the internship I had a new outlook on life. I was energized and realized I wanted to be my own boss. I know who I was and what I wanted for myself.
Long story short, I switched majors and life goals, and here I am 10 years later with my Associate's, Bachelor's and Master's in Film and Media Studies and my own photography business. Huh, who knew?
Since then I have worked various photography gigs, from weddings to working in a couple studios, to even working as an editor and published photographer.
I have done it all, and yet, I'm still hungry for more experience.
I run my business from the comfort of my in-home studio in Sacramento, California.
I have had the pleasure of working with global brands like Samsonite, Kingsford, Samuel Hubbard, Nature's Way, and many more. Alongside this I have been working with small businesses and start ups to help elevate their brand and online presence whilst keeping within their budgets.

I was voted one of the top ten best commercial photographers in Sacramento here, and I was also named Fear Factor Live champion in Orlando, so you can line up for autographs (Yes, really).

When I'm not working, I'm playing video games, cuddling my dog, or reading with a cup of coffee.
