CHRISTOPHER BRYAN - The Business of Commercial Photography


The ins and outs of running a commercial photography studio


From prospecting and initial phone calls to final deliverables and follow ups, we’ll spend the evening discussions the nuances and differences of running a studio that serves commercial clients and their needs.


Christopher Bryan began his journey behind the camera at the age of 6 with his grandmother’s Polaroid 600 and his mother’s Canon 35mm. If there was a camera within arm’s reach, he could be found burning through exposures, waiting eagerly for the final image to be delivered from the lab.


He made the jump to full-time photography in 2014 when he opened his first photography studio focused on producing personal branding imagery, professional headshots, luxury real estate listings and editorial style high school senior portraits. In 2019 he made the dedicated shift to commercial photography. When not paying the bills in the studio or in the field for a client, you can typically find him paying his soul by chasing sunsets or thunderstorms, trying to capture that jaw dropping, once in a lifetime, unique shot.


The biggest similarity between retail and commercial photography is both genres require a camera.

MetroPPA was founded in 1985 after a group of individuals decided to turn

their shared interests into an official Photography Organization. Since then we’ve grown as a community, and have expanded what we offer to our members.

When you decide to join us, you too will gain access to various events and

most importantly, to a group of like-minded individuals who are just

as passionate as you are.
