About Christopher Nastri Commercial/Editorial Photographer Food/Still Life/Product Here are a few not so fascinating but completely truthful facts... I was born in New York and raised in Texas. Translation: I can work at a fast pace but can also speak slowly and clearly (with a drawl, if needed). Raised with four older brothers. Translation: Advanced survival techniques . Studied studio arts. Translation: Have several boxes of oil paints, brushes and charcoals, somewhere in storage. Based in Dallas but will happily go wherever a shoot takes me.... Token third person point of view comment: Chris has always enjoyed taking pictures of things. Useful Skills: • Controlling and manipulating light. • Composition • Focus (Camera and Mental) Not So Useful Skills: • Juggling (3 items or less) • Attracting screech owls with call imitation. • Levitating (novice) "Me Time" When I’m not behind the camera, I spend my time having adventures (and misadventures) with my amazing, understanding wife, Abby, and our two rescue dogs, Charlie & Mr. Mosely. The "Hard Sell" I'm fortunate to be able to blend my two passions - studio arts and photography - into my profession. My passion drives me to always create the best possible image for my client. Years of experience allows me to do this consistently, even when last minute changes occur, as we all know they sometimes do. Instead of a look of panic, you’ll get a smile and a nod and then exactly what you need. Though I have shot a wide range of subjects, I’ve found food and still life/product photography to be especially satisfying (with a human thrown in now and then). I am blessed to work with the best food and prop stylists and support crew in the business. On set, we share a strong work ethic, creative thinking and a healthy dose of laughter. Please look through my portfolios and if you feel hungry, an urge to own something you see or say the words "wow" or "cool", then perhaps we should work together. I’d love the opportunity... -Chris All photographs appearing on this site are the property of Christopher Nastri Photography.
