Chris Fortuna was born in Boston, Massachusetts and began photographing in his early teens with a Yashica Mat camera.
He studied fine art photography at New York University Tish School Of The Arts. After graduating he was awarded the Daniel Rosenberg Traveling Fellowship For Photography.
His early photographic work was transformed by working under such old world masters as Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon And Paolo Roversi.
After living and working in New York City for much of his career Chris has recently relocated and now calls Los Angeles home.
When not working on either coast he can be found at the racetrack on his Ducati.
