Drawing on a lifetime of experience in photography and filmmaking, Chris Constantine provides professional photography services for San Francisco Bay Area individuals, businesses, advertising and talent agencies, non-profit organizations, models, and sports teams. He provides services to the entire Bay Area, including Marin, San Francisco, Oakland, Santa Rosa, the Peninsula, and San Jose. He also works with clients in several Bay Area photography studios or, more frequently, on location where he can either take advantage of the natural light and the beauty of the Bay Area. He’s also spent time on the road, photographing people, places, and events across the U.S., including Boston, Orlando, Chicago, and Seattle, to name a few.One of the keys to great photography is the quality of lighting (after all, the word “photography” was created from the Greek roots phōtos (light) and graphé, together meaning “drawing with light”).
For those times when adequate lighting is not available on location, Chris travels with top-of-the-line professional studio-quality Profoto strobes and modifiers to help set the stage beautiful photos. He is also able to set up a studio backdrop and lighting on location in most offices, warehouses, buildings, and even outdoors when needed.Chris’ photography portfolio is diverse, ranging from landscapes to product photography to portraits. As a certified scuba instructor, Chris has also spent a considerable amount of time underwater and has had his underwater photos published in both print and online magazines. When he’s not underwater or shooting photos on land, you may find him riding his mountain bike, on a hike in Marin’s hills, or enjoying time with friends and family.
So far this year, Chris has covered 11 conventions and events in the San Francisco area, ranging in size from a few dozen to more than 5,000 attendees. He works both directly with clients and as a contractor with such services and Orange Photography and Man With A Cam. Being very flexible with both his schedule and approach, Chris is sometimes called with as little as one day’s notice and able to provide his services with a fast turnaround that his clients especially like.Chris also does product photography for advertising, and in particular has spent considerable time working for companies such as California Closets and Maykke, photographing their products and home interiors for their website, local, and national advertising. He is very easy to work with, and people enjoy his professionalism, reliability, and dedication to his craft.
