Chris Thomaidis is a photographer based in Toronto, Canada. He has worked with a diverse range of subject matter, within all forms of media . Contemplative observation with a strong graphic sensibility for image making, have come to represent his photographic style. A five minute sitting with a bank executive, the last ten minutes of an airshow, an afternoon with vintage car lovers, a weekend exploring animals in captivity or a week long assignment documenting corporate facilities and people nationwide, whether shooting for himself or on assignment, it’s all personal.
