About the Author
blogger, photographer, technologist
Chris is a self-taught photographer and fell in love with the art at the young age of 15, when point and shoot film camera was still cool. Although, his journey to this career was a roller coaster ride. He decided to get serious with the craft until 2007 and shifted to digital.
Couple of years after, he discovered 360 photography and started experimenting. It was a hair-pulling trial and error, testing different camera and lenses available to him. Including building DIY panoramic heads over the years. Yet, still continues to improve his technique to this day.
It was 2015, he decided to commercialize his 360 skills and within a few months he got his Google Street View Trusted Professional status. As part of this program, he helps businesses improve their branding and exposure. Increasing customer traffic and interaction with the use of Google Maps and Google+ Business.
He also loves street, automotive, and travel photography.
Lately, he began shooting events and wedding reportage.
Outside of his camera, he is doing managerial task to one of the major US tech companies. As well as web design with 360/VR tour integration consultancy for small and medium businesses.

"The most important thing about photography is who you are, and I can go into depth about the psychology of that, but there’s no way you can take a photograph and not leave your imprint on it. Every time you hit the shutter it’s based on who you are, that’s what makes you different from every body else. My style is that I shoot from the heart, to the heart.”

Three hours of trek with camera gears, no problem. As long as he captures the beauty of nature.
