Christopher Jue is an editorial, corporate, and commercial photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. He shoots for a diverse range of clientele in studio and on location in the Asia Pacific region.
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California, went to IT school, and graduated with a B.S. in Network and Communications Management. I worked in the IT industry in California and Japan for a short time when I realized this is not for me. The decision to leave that secure full-time job in IT, even when more money was offered to stay, was a choice that not many people would probably endeavor. I wanted a life and that's what photography has given me.
My passion for pictures turned into a career that I never thought possible in a foreign country that still amuses and confuses me until this day. I'm surrounded by wonderful people all over the world and often find myself getting on planes more than usual, creating pictures for myself and viewers like you.
Believe it or not, but I suck at Photoshop, which is why my work is, what it is. Just clean, simple and straightforward storytelling. I guess you could say I'm most regarded as being a photographer rather than a digital artist.
