Universals Studios Backlot Photo Shoot - Western Set

- Christopher Tandoc -

To those who come to seek who I am. My name is Christopher Tandoc. I am a United States Marine Corps Veteran. I have toured to several locations while serving our great country with great pride. As my family before me, I have enlisted to other military branches. I as well, followed the path of my families tradition. First in my family to have enlisted into the Marine Corp. 

I reside in the city of Los Angeles, California. Been living in this area for the past six years and counting. Living here has opened many opportunities to venture into. Like many artists and actors, I came out to Los Angeles hoping to pursue my career in Photojournalism and Still Photographer. 

I started in August of 2012, during my time in the Film Making Program at the New York Film Academy, Los Angeles Campus. When my fellow colleagues needed a set photographer for their film projects, I stepped up to the plate and picked up a DSLR camera and started shooting for their projects. That was when I found my passion to shoot Still Images. 

As I waited for the year to end, I transferred over to the Photography Program at the academy and continued my studies there. The people who I look up to in the related field are Douglas Kirkland, Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Gilden, Philip-Lorca Dicorcia and Gregory Crewdson.
