Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Cuffaro.
Chris, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Short version of a long story… I started shooting when I was 10 years old. I’ve always wanted to be a photographer. Move to LA when I was 21. Been based in LA since 81 and shooting all over the world. Made my name in the music world but have shot everything in my 47 years. I love what I do, do what I love. Been blessed to have met and worked with so many of my heroes. I will never get enough!! Can’t stop, won’t stop!
Has it been a smooth road?
Nothing in my life has ever come easy. No matter what I believe in doing the work. NO excuses! NO bullshit. I still struggle with business and life. I want so much it makes me crazy. I’ve always had big dreams and goals. I’ve also been blessed to have amazing support, life teachers and amazing friends. They get me through everything.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Shooting in Los Angeles is all about the business of entertainment. I’ve shot my share of everything. The good news is that I want to do more. The great news is I’m doing the best work of my career now! I’m proud of everything I’ve created. I’ve created and shot more than I ever dreamed of. More than anyone knows. What sets me apart??? Good question… my answer is simple… my passion and work ethic. Nobody will every outwork me!
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Success to me is all about doing what you love and I’ve been lucky to do what I love for 47 years now. I have a million stories and the photos to prove it. My markers are simple… always be creative, always be grateful and use you manners!
