CHRISTOPHER MENDOZA

I'm a freelance Photographer based out of New York City, specializing in portraits and fashion photography. My first camera was Nikon's N75 35mm film SLR and I have been into Photography and Prints for over thirteen years, beginning in 2003 in my early college years. I kept it as a serious hobby, simultaneously while continuing other endeavors in professional comic book coloring, with credits from the late 90s to the mid 2000s for comic books such as Lady Death, Gypsy and the early days of Digital Webbing Presents. 
Photography comes naturally to me, also with a good foundation in graphic design, a professional background in Colors, and with formal education in Photography, Advertising Design, Caligraphy, Print, and Architecture. This is why I made the transition to Portraits and Fashion Photography from Illustration and Graphic Design. 
As a creative, I have always had the eye for making beautiful artworks. My previous experiences in a lot of artistic outputs, has allowed me to pick up many skills. My passion for photography allows me to channel my creative eye and skills together to create images that I enjoy and share with everyone. Improving my work is key - so with each click of my shutter, I always shoot for better than the last.
