Chris Fortuna

Los Angeles - photographers

Chris Fortuna is a fashion and celebrity photographer based in Los Angeles. Born in Boston, he began photographing at a young age and moved to New York City to study photography and fine art at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. His early education was transformed by learning and assisting for some of the old-world photography masters, including Helmut Newton, Paolo Roversi and Richard Avedon.

Working in both editorial and advertising fields, Chris describes his style and influence as "the modern example of the classic image, defined by beauty and light." Currently, his work is focused on stills and motion, capturing and defining the ideas of "real beauty" and "the visual link between subject and artist."

When not working on either coast, Chris likes to spend time attempting to go fast on two wheels.

Clients include GQ, Esquire, Converse, NBC Universal, Maxim, Biore, Sprint, Virgin, FHM, Sony, Complex, Warner Bros., Entertainment Weekly, Olay, People, Interview and W Magazine.
