  • Chris has been working with Great Lakes Publishing for several years and started photographing my assignments for Cleveland Magazine this past year. His architecture and portrait photography is outstanding. Chris takes direction well, isn't afraid of bring new ideas to the table and delivers a top-quality photograph every time. He is able to grasp a concept on little or no information and produce a final photograph that is often beyond our expectations or original vision. Chris is a pleasure to work with.

  • Chris is an asset to the Cleveland community.His compositions are top-notch and when it comes to creative implementation, Chris "gets it" with very little direction. I highly recommend Chris as a photographer for any project.

  • Chris has mastered the art and business of photography. When he fires the shutter you will know that it is only when every aspect of the image has been planned and considered. I have known Chris for 8 years and have seen him develop in skill and trade but he has always had the ability to aproach a subject with comfort and confidence.
