Born and raised in Peekskill, NY, Chris Sista discovered his passion for photography in high school. While attending college at SUNY Purchase an interest in filmmaking took hold. This is what eventually brought him to Los Angeles, where he’s been based ever since.
After a few years of navigating the film industry, Chris rediscovered his love of photography. He soon landed at Disney, achieving his childhood dream of living at theme parks while taking pictures of cartoon characters. Chris eventually transitioned to freelance photography, traveling the world for clients including Marriott Vacations Worldwide, The Walt Disney Company, and Ritz-Carlton.
Not content with sticking to one photographic discipline, Chris focuses simultaneously on lifestyle, editorial, travel, and architecture. He is currently in the beginning stages of “Hold For Stills”, an ongoing project which will combine his passions for movies and photography.
