Unit Stills Photographer

EPISODE .106

From sport participant to sport photographer, Christian decided to jump from this to movie extra and then stand-in for Tom Cruise as he worked his way to become an on-set photographer in the film industry. Years later and with some A-Lister help, he has now racked up an impressive list of credits shooting on two Mission Impossible films, Boiling Point with Stephen Graham, Ted Lasso, Michael Bay's 13 Hours and most recently, the new Star Wars series The Acolyte.
