Kris Kachikis learned to bring playfulness and passion onto every frame from years of watching his early mentor Herb Ritts craft incredible images.

Today Kachikis explores his frames with the instinctive eye of a still photographer balancing the natural with controls.

Kachikis continues to shoot for many still photographers when they direct, most notably Lauren Greenfield, Peggy Sirota, Russel James, Rankin and Dewey Nicks.

In narrative, Kris has collaborated with directors Spike Jonze, Christopher Guest and John Hamburg to name a few. Kachikis's feature and short films have competed at Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca and TIFF.


Kachikis's commercial clients include: Apple, Chevy, Budweiser, Progressive, Nike, Google, Toyota, and L'Oreal, for directors such as Grant Heslov, Maggie Carey, Brendan Gibbons, Kim Nguyen, Matt Swanson and Jonathon Dayton & Valerie Faris.


2022 started with Kris putting the finishing touches on the tent pole Netflix / HartBeat picture, Me Time. Directed and Produced by John Hamburg, this Kevin Hart comedy also stars Regina Hall and Mark Wahlberg. Me Time will be released August 2022.

Kachikis is represented by William Morris Endeavor.
