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.
“Christopher is an image whisperer. He tames the light, softens the mood. His compositions are well thought out, elegant and perfectly arranged. When I examine his work I feel he must have a deep sense of spirituality about himself. My favorite image of his will always be the cowboy standing on his horse. Like the cowboy, Christopher is a curious wanderer, a seeker of knowledge and peace. A fairy tale story lies in every image. I feel at peace and safe looking at his work, and for that I thank you, Christopher."
