Hi there, I’m Cristofer Jeschke. I'm a photographer and educator in the Pacific Northwest.
I was born in Germany and raised, for the most part, in the United States. I'm passionate about visual art, writing and, most importantly, making the world a better place.
I graduated high school at 16 during a time when my family’s financial situation was less than stable. I decided to take my life into my own hands and instead of going to college, I moved 2000 miles across the country and went to work.
Over the years that followed I gained experience in numerous fields and encountered some fantastic opportunities. Instead of learning in an academic institution I learned from hardship and my own mistakes.
In the end, the choice I made when I was 16 resulted in the life I have today. It was a radical change of plans that vaulted me into the unknown. This forced me to learn faster and work harder than I ever had before.
“Security is mostly a superstition. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
- Helen Keller
I learned that it's important to live the life you want to live and stop caring about what other people think. Hurtful people will say mean things. But you know what? The only time they get a victory is when you give it to them.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little about me. I look forward to working with you or having our paths cross again in the future.
