2016: My Year in Photography

From Asbury Park to Vermont to Colorado to my studio in Paterson, New Jersey. Behold the year 2016 through some of my favorite photographs taken for a wide variety of clients…and some of my personal “off the clock” work as well. Although clock watching isn’t something I’ve done in many, many years. Thanks to all, large and small, for taking the time to work with me on a one-on-one basis to craft something special. These are the images that are cool now, but absolutely priceless down the road. I also thank the likes of Matt Koza and Jeff Heckman for bouncing ideas around and being exactly the type of people that fuel the fire of making something out of nothing.

Here’s to many more great shoots with people that share a mutual trust in making images that aren’t just disposable social media fodder. They’re striking, timeless and fun and I intend on keeping it that way in 2017 and beyond.

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I love creating new things and breathe life into each project I work on. I strive to please my clients and myself. Helping me along the way have been influences ranging from Steven Spielberg to Annie Leibovitz. It goes without saying that numerous individuals have encouraged me along the way.

Since graduating from The Art Institute of York Pennsylvania (formerly Bradley Academy) in 2001, I’ve worked with clients such as The Opie & Anthony Show, Brother, Blair’s Sauces & Snacks, UL, ChocoVision and Prudential to name a few.

 

REVIEWS

 

Amazing Experience

“My husband and I had an outdoor wedding by the lakeside Sept of 2013. When the search for a photographer began I knew I didn’t have to go very far. I’ve known Chris since college and previewed some of his work and knew that he was the perfect choice. He came to our home months before the wedding and did an engagement shoot and his ideas were out of this world! When the wedding rolled around I couldn’t wait for the photography to begin , from the time he spent with me and my bridesmaids getting ready, the ceremony and reception , every moment was captured beautifully. I can look at each photograph and relive everything I felt at that exact moment. He was the best choice for the best day of our lives!”

Best Choice Ever

“My husband and I had a small wedding in June 2012 at a bed and breakfast in Flemington, New Jersey. When looking for a photographer, we knew we needed someone special to capture the intimacy of the event and charm of the location. Choosing That Werks for our wedding photography was the best decision we made! We were initially drawn to Chris by his amazing portfolio which, along with weddings, also showcased his versatility in beautifully capturing a variety of subjects. After a wonderful meeting, we knew Chris’s creativity and exceptional skills would make him the perfect photographer for our wedding and we could not be happier with his work. He was super attentive and flexible with all our requests and perfectly balanced what we wanted along with his amazing expertise. We highly, highly recommend That Werks for wedding photography as well as for capturing all of life’s special events! “

A True Artist

“If you want photographs of your wedding that are each like a little piece of art, then Chris Sztybel is your guy. He really approaches every photograph with the sensibility of an artist, paying attention to color and background and catching unexpected moments. He took some amazingly beautiful photos of our day, which included a photo shoot of just the two of us in a NYC park followed by a trip to City Hall! Probably the best thing about him is that he couldn’t be a more pleasant person to spend the day with, which makes a huge difference when you’re in the midst of really special, intimate moments. ”

2012 Demo Reel

We, The Chosen video explosion

Sometimes it’s hard to sum up what I do. I’m an artist, but what does that mean to people? That I draw stuff? That’s just one facet. I also know how to do countless other things so the only way to get that point across is a little show and tell. People that hire me are getting the total package. I take pride in knowing a lot and doing my best to make sure I stay as creative as humanly possible.

99% of everything you see in this video was conceived from absolutely nothing but a blank page and ideas flying through my head. Thanks for watching and please remember to share it with co-workers and friends. Word of mouth is the best!

Liturgical Dance Day in Morristown, New Jersey

Liturgical Dance Day horn blowingI enjoy working on projects that are out of the ordinary and Liturgical Dance Day fits the bill. When I heard about it I had no clue what to expect, but took on the cinematographer assignment anyway. The evening started with flag waving and horn blowing and progressed into interpretive dance. We ended up in a church ceremony the included a full funk band. It was pretty awesome!
