Hi! I’m guessing you’re here because you want some amazing photos and or video, you are in luck! I do just that, and my clients agree! I’m Chris, I became a photographer to create images and films that motivate people. I hope that you enjoy my work and enjoy it enough to hire me. I am also a videographer & cinematographer, mountain biker, skier, tennis player, comedian, drummer and competitive Mario Kart gamer. My friends would describe me as, “Way too excited about photos”, “Macgyver“, “talented”, “hilarious, “great photographer”, “I don’t like losing to you in Mario Kart every time we race” and “fun”.
What you need to know
I kind of fell into photography, I never believed that I could make a living using my camera, and somehow it happened. I went to school for photography and worked my tail off researching and studying as much as I could about the subject. I interned and work for some of the best photographers in the Northwest and the Country before jumping out on my own to do what you see here on my website. Some say photographers are artists, but me… I’m more what someone might call an artist-technician, a little bit of a nerd and a little bit of an artist. I try really hard to make my clients happy, I am here for you. Contact me today to see if we’re a match!

Chris has picked up his first camera in a store for his 4th grade field trip; it was a blue point and shoot. From that point on Chris was hooked, later on his grandpa gave his one of his old film cameras. In 2004 Chris made the jump into Digital at an early age with his first digital camera; he still has to this day. Years later he officially opened the business in 2011, after getting numerous requests for senior portraits and other photographic work. He photographed his first wedding that year as well.
Chris has photographed for some of the worlds largest brands such as Google, Facebook, Guggenheim, FRA, Ironman, Toyota, Steinway, Southwest Airlines and many many others. He has als worked on projects for many local and regional organizations such as University of Washington, Washington State Univesity, Gonzaga University, Whitworth University, Eastern Washington University, Avista, Numerica Credit Union, Hoopfest, Bloomsday the list goes on. To sum it up, he has worked on a variety of different projects with a variety of client types and knows his way around a camera.
His ideal clients are those who are thoughtful, compassionate and driven to do good in the world. His clients are selfless, forgiving and understanding. They listen, and read, give time and thanks. His ideal clients are more than customers, they are people that he aspires to be like and hope to one day call friends.

I have had the pleasure of working with Chris and his team on several occasions. Not only is the quality of his work fantastic but, he is always pleasant to work with. Chris and his team are very professional, considerate and easy to work with. He definitely has a "Photographer's Eye". I always recommend Chris Thompson Photography to my clients and would highly suggest that if you are looking for a reliable and professional Photographer/Videographer who, in my experience, always delivers above and beyond the expected, that you give Chris a call and see if he's a good fit for you.
