After 15 years in the advertising world as a writer and art director, Christopher jumped off a cliff to start Christopher Wilson Photography. As an advertising creative, Christopher created a vast portfolio of powerful campaigns for some of the most recognized luxury brands there are, including Audi, Infiniti, Jaguar, Nikon and Ritz-Carlton to mention only a few.
Now Christopher is bringing all that experience and passion to his photography - and it shows. Christopher leapt from agency creative to global photographer, landing projects with the most sought-after brands on the planet, and in just about every country there is on the planet.
When Christopher was young and stupid, he was a ballet dancer. He danced eight hours a day, made no money, survived on bread and coffee, lost twenty pounds he didn't have, looked like hell and broke his ankle twice. What an idiot. Before that, he was at Dartmouth College where he studied Ancient Greek and Latin Literature. Good stuff to know, he says, if you ever want to work in the Vatican.
He is an obsessed mountain biker and enters races whenever he can, which is never because he is too busy working and taking care of his two beautiful daughters, by far the best things he has ever created.
His wife, Cathy, lives in the center of his heart.
"It's not difficult to find an image-maker with many accolades to their credit - but fame does not guarantee that you will be able to work well together. You need a person in whom you can confide. Someone with whom you can share a connection and an artistic sense. Christopher does that for me."
- JOHN DOYLE, The Core Collective
"FOR ME, PHOTOGRAPHY IS ABOUT VISION - AN ABILITY TO LOOK AT A PILE OF ROCKS AND HOPEFULLY CREATE A CATHEDRAL."
Christopher has received enormous recognition for his work. And while he is honored by all the attention, he's more interested in the nomination than the award, as he believes the nomination just puts you in the conversation with the outstanding.
