Autistic Photographer Christopher Casson assisting with Wedding Photography
 Ron Delhaye Studios

Hello! I'm Christopher Casson.

I'm a Chicago based photographer with a drive and passion for photography and travel. I also happen to have Asperger's Syndrome, a condition on the autistic spectrum. Instead of sticking and living by stereotypes with this disability, I've been moving forward with my goals to smash them in order to find my true potential. This positive mindset also lives in my photography as well. I am always pushing myself to get the most amazing shots for people I work with.

The art of photography also gives me a sense of tranquility that I pass on through my work that any observer can feel. I also believe this applies to any emotion at the time of the photo shoot. Love, happiness, sadness and other feelings are all captured and preserved on film. All these emotions can present itself from the subject in front of the lens or even the photographers themselves. Something that seems ordinary for some people can become extraordinary if you look at it from a different perspective.

I apply this thought process through all my photography work, from catching the excited crowds at festivals to the serene and peaceful landscapes that spread towards the horizon. Each trip provides a new learning experience and view about myself and the world around me, which in turn I photograph and share my own unique viewpoint as an autistic.
