Who is Christina Lazar-Schuler?
I’m a portrait, fashion and editorial photographer. I’m a visual artist and my medium is photography.
I have always been a creative person; starting with traditional art materials as a child (paint, crayons, paper, etc.) and evolving from traditional art mediums to contemporary digital mediums including photography.
Photography really captured my attention since I had these images in my head that I couldn’t always translate to paper and canvas (drawing life portraits was never my strong suit). It has allowed me create a visual story around my ideas with images, mood, colour and texture. It is my way of capturing a moment in time; preserving an emotion whether it’s pleasure or pain. It’s my way of bringing a little bit of beauty into the world, one image at a time and all with with the press of a button. It truly instant gratification.
I'm a relaxed and fun photographer, which creates an easy connection with my subject(s). I’m a seriously un-serious person, but when it comes to shooting, I'm efficient, professional, knowledgeable and easy-going at all times.
Style wise I would say that I strive to create images that are embued with life and colour; it is my goal to capture images that you will remember for a long time.
Creative keywords for me are cinematic, fresh and bold..
