Christina Gandolfo is an award-winning photographer who loves creating colorful, character-driven portraits of people and animals. Her earliest photos were of family cats and dogs (often in clothes and costumes long before cosplay was cool). Before becoming a professional photographer she was a newspaper beat reporter, magazine editor and sports journalist who covered endurance sports on 5 continents. She loves making big plans, noticing the small things, going with the flow, and finding scrappy solutions to problems big and small. Engaging with creative minds, hopping on her bicycle and making and eating sandwiches are among her favorite things to do. Her work has been highlighted in PDN, A PhotoEditor, American Photography and The Huffington Post as well as numerous magazines and print publications.
