Pawleys Island photographer christopher john services murrells inlet, surfside, garden city and myrtle beach.
Since the day I got a miniature camera in a cereal box as a little boy, I have always been fascinated with Photography, and Art in general. While in college (The Art Institute of Phila.) I interned in a fashion/portrait studio. This is when my vision was born, and a love for interacting with people began. I was raised in the service business by my Grandfather (my mentor of life). He gave me a true love of humanity, and how fun people can be, especially kids and dogs.
Photographing children and families are one of my favorite types of photography. Children are my forte', they are so "un-inhibited" and natural, and seem to respond to my antics.
Being able to serve Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, Surfside Beach, Garden City and the Myrtle Beach area have been a true blessing. People tend to relax more in this atmosphere. Being on vacation and enjoying the sun sure helps.
I feel the most important part of the session is the 15 min. before I even snap a picture. Getting to know my clients is so important. People tend to let their guard down and become more relaxed and natural after a short interaction.
My style... Fun, creative, natural, candid, colorful. I also shoot weddings, engagements, babies, families, children, seniors, birthdays, and reunions across the Grand Strand.
In addition, the newest software and equipment has empowered me to expand my creativity and apply it to my work.
I also am in business with my wife. We own a frame shop/print shop called seasideframing in Litchfield. Stop by and say HI!
God has given us all gifts. Creativity is a blessing, I am thankful for the vision He has Blessed me with.
I am grateful for my family, and my wife especially, for being so supportive of my craft. I hope you enjoy navigating my site, and may God Bless you and yours.
