Photographer | Director

Chris embraced photography in 2009 as a much-needed creative outlet, having moved away from a career in jazz piano. Shooting photos on his iPhone first, Chris discovered a passion for photography that has blossomed into a career.

Chris's work gained wide recognition on the heels of his popular Instagram account, which currently has over 600,000 followers. More than 60,000 people follow him on tumblr and another 50,000 follow him on twitter.

His work has been featured by the International Center of Photography, and is part of the permanent collection in the Museum of the City of New York.

Chris lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and two sons.
