Chris Gillyard Photo
Coming from a family of artist it was inevitable that his life would center around visual arts. Chris trained as a photographer at the University of North Florida before studying in New York. Shooting professionally for eighteen years, he always looks at life through the eye of the camera. Working with Disney photographic services for seven years and the top wedding photographers in Florida. Chris has had the pleasure of photographing the most exquisite weddings over the last eighteen years. In addition to weddings, Chris has the knack for designing, styling photo shoots and is a talented graphic artist. His current projects include fashion, commercial, portrait and music photography. Chris’s images, both intriguing and gorgeous, have appeared on and in between the covers of Orlando Leisure, Central Florida Bride and is currently under contract with Vogue Magazine. His uncompromising dedication to creativity separates him from the influx of digital-ease photographers and keeps him top of mind as a key creative partner in the worlds of fashion, music, and advertising. This wide range of styles has helped him form his own style – a mixture of art, journalism and portraiture – which he incorporates into everything he photographs. Chris approaches every subject with great love and respect and has photographed commercial advertising campaigns for a variety of clients including Luis Vuitton, The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes, Guilty Choppers, Angela Gutekunst Interiors.
