  • Chris and his entire team are a true pleasure to work with.  They do a lot of still image work for us and have also started doing some 3D imaging for our event spaces through their video company Invelop Now.  Highly recommended!

  • Chris Malacarne is a talented photographer with a great eye for composition and a sixth sense for those fleeting moments of joy and human interaction. He listens well and creates wonderful image/s that both serve my purposes and exceed my expectations. His full-on dedication to getting the right shot, no matter how squirrelly the kids or whatever the subject, has probably spoiled me for other photographers.

  • "High quality images are everything. This could not be more true than in the ultra-competitive world of Online Retail. We used various photographers in the past and realized just how hard it was to find someone who can capture high-resolution pictures of jewelry products.  The quality of our stock images from Chris is consistently leaps and bounds above that of our previous photographer.  Much of the success of our private label brand can be directly attributed to the tremendous work Chris has done for us. Our product line has a big advantage over the competition given that our images are above and beyond that of our closest competitors. We simply will not use anyone else. "
