Maintaining a reputation for being the best photography team possible isn't automatic. Experience, Education, and constant Training keep Chris & Cami Photography pushing the outside of the envelope, always delivering above and beyond their client's expectations. Chris began his love-affair with photography in high-school. He grew up in Zaire, a country in central Africa now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo. His parents were missionaries who used photography as a way to communicate to family and churches back home about their work. Chris began taking photography classes in high-school and by 10th grade was winning awards in International Photo Competitions, including the Foire International Photographic. He continued winning acclaim throughout college and eventually received his Professional Photography Degree from the New York Institute of Photography. Growing up in Ohio, Cami had a similar calling that led her to attend the most respected photography school in the state. She had received her Commercial Photography Degree from the Ohio Institute of Photography by the time Chris & Cami met. What began as a professional relationship soon grew into much more...and the rest is history. To date, Chris & Cami have been combining their passion for photography with their passion for life and for each other for over a decade!

In spite of all the training and experience, they continue to attend numerous Seminars, Workshops, and Trade Shows in the photographic field every year. And they've even begun giving back by mentoring, training, and speaking to local groups and photography clubs as a way of sharing their knowledge and passion for photography with others of similar heart. According to Chris "If you're not constantly growing as an artist, you're becoming stale and being left behind".

Hiring a REAL professional photographer also means selecting someone who invests wisely in the right tools. Chris & Cami Photography only use the fastest, most expensive, highest resolution equipment available in the world. Period. The gear they use is the same as what War Photographers, Super Bowl Photographers, and Olympic Photographers use to capture moments that will never again occur in the history of mankind.

"To capture a glance, an embrace, a solitary tear running down a cheek...a creative and artistic vision is useless without the proper equipment to grab these moments before they slip away...forever" - Chris.

Staying at the top of one's game isn't easy. Chris & Cami have aligned themselves with professional organizations that reflect their passion for excellence in photography. A few of them include the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), Society of Sports & Event Photographers (SEP), Professional Photographers of South Carolina (PPSC), and Nikon Professional Services (NPS). In addition they belong to several Charleston groups like the Center 4 Photography. And they have founded a fast-growing group known as the Charleston Lunch Photographers who get together for lunch once a month to discuss the latest techniques and ideas in the ever changing world of photography.
