He is now in Newport News VA and operates a self-sustained modeling agency. He’s been doing photography for 14 years. His first Love for photography was Nature Photos… This began his way down the road toward being the Photographer…
After being hospitalized from the end of 2009 til May 2010 Chris did not know what he was gonna do with his life. His childhood friend had introduced him to club photography because he knew Chris was into photography. One Day he came across a girl who wanted him to manage her. She stated “You’re a genius who owns a camera so manage me.” This day he became the Photographer.
During this time he upgraded to become the photographer. Then he created Approved Media. Media that is Approved by the people for the people. This is still his mantra today. He does all forms of photography. His outlook on the world is different from others. His level of creativity sets him apart from others in his field.
The following i the IQ (Intelligence Quotient) of the Photographer Owner and C.E.O. of Approved Media.
A little about me, I’m an experienced photographer of 14 yrs I did 2 yrs of photography in High School. Then pursued higher learning off and on through online studies. I’ve done photos at local clubs. I also have experience doing concert photography with the featured artist. I’ve met artists such as Juicy J done photos at the Norva where Young Jeezy was also scheduled to perform. I take this profession very seriously because I Love Photography that’s what it’s about and it’s what I enjoy doing. I also do photography as a source of financial gain so I can always upgrade equipment and look forward to doing bigger and better things. I manage people so that way I can help them be them the best way possible to meet their goals. In order to do this I use proper planning and strategy.
2000 – present
I’m a photographer still during these times in the early 2000’s I photographed trees nature and all that surrounded us. I believe that when you get down to it the Earth has a soul. In that soul all things may seem random. I took it upon myself to find the patterns. Patterns in the grass in the leaves and most of all the asymmetrical patterns in the sky. I Love nature and what better way to capture it than with a photograph.
2010 – present
I was doing photos at a well-known local club during which time I met a young woman. Not someone I was interested in intimate relations but attractive none the less. She pointed out my intuition and my ability to think fast on my feet. Then proposed that since I was a photographer why not manage models and use my intuition to help people advance in life. I’ve been very passionate about management from that day forward and began building myself up doing what I Love photography.
In the year 2016 on March 8th Approved Media Officially became Approved Media Incorporated. They changed the business plan an regulations.

As the CEO of Approved Media my first and primary goal is to do this for the people. They are what it’s about, I have a calling to help people and I will always remember that. Second is to be loyal to those who work for me that are loyal to me. Third is to publish media that can be appreciated by the people. Whether that media be photographs posters calendars or magazines the important thing is that it is appreciated even if by only one person appreciation is all that matters. It’s about appreciation.
