Photography goes back a few generations in the family so it’s no surprise that I picked up my first camera at age 12 and I have not put one down since. After graduating The Portfolio Center art school of Atlanta, I began my career.
My wife Janis Christie shared our love and skill for photography and together created Christie & Cole Studio Inc. as a primary workspace located in Athens, Ga. You can usually find me in my studio unless I am out working on location or traveling the world from Tokyo, London or Italy creating new work.
I also love working closely with ad agencies and design firms to achieve the desired image. My work has been published by Time Magazine, New York Times, Ford, Money Magazine, Blue Cross Blue Shield, American Cancer Society, Oprah Magazine & Forbes to name a few.
On the rare moments when I am not shooting I teach my dog Bailey new tricks, I also compete on the tennis court, golf course & love mountain biking.
