Eddie Christie is demure and serene at first sight. He may not be statuesque in size, but there is an energy about him making him appear intimidating and daunting. Eddie is neither, but his eyes are serious and piercing. When talking about his work, he is professional and specific. Unlike many others, he will describe every possible detail of his vision, of the execution of said vision, and why the end product is such in vivid professor-like precision.
Once the layer of mystique is lessened (it does not seem to ever disappear), he is warm, caring and quite smitten.
He describes himself as a “Fine Art Nude photographer who sometimes verges on erotica.” His work, which emphasizes on nude bodies, plays with yoga, gymnastics and other sporty and aerial elements as he creates interesting angles and poses. It should not come to shock that outside of serving in the US Army, he has a background in gymnastics, dance, yoga, rock climbing, theater and opera.
Eddie has a tendency to find stunning locations that others probably do not see fit, as he and his models compose in nature and buildings mostly around the eastern states.
