About CJ Creating

I have had the privilege of documenting precious memories for community members, friends, family, clients and myself for almost 15 years now.


While I provide professional photography and media services though my business KIROS Images, CJ Creating is a special outlet for me to share the elements of art, life & legacy that are behind the images I produce.

REFLECTIONS:

In life, I have come to appreciate how precious our moments are on earth, every breath is a blessing and an opportunity. This is why I am so happy to share my  media library which features art, live and legacy for myself and those I have had the pleasure of meeting.


Nothing is meant to stay the same, but that which transforms makes space for new growth. 


I believe in celebrating Life and Legacy. As a media artist (a documentarian and archivist of sorts) I have had the benefit of appreciating the process of media archiving/sharing in a professional and personal capacity. As I saw myself advancing in years, the “scarcity” of time became more apparent and the “sacred” duty of helping people preserve memories through images became even more special.


For this reason, I take my photography and video work very seriously. When I began documenting community events, family members and friends in the early days of my photography work, I diligently preserved these documents over time to the best of my ability. Accumulating hundreds of thousands of images in an ever expanding system of hard drives and virtual cloud solutions, I have spent countless hours over the course of many years consolidating and reorganizing all of these files.


It has been a very long process… I came across many technical challenges and incurred a great deal of expenses, but the power of telling stories and sharing perspectives of my community is well worth it all.


All my friends and family members have heard me constantly referring to my media archive, blog, etc. as an ongoing project for years now, so I am happy that I was able to pour so much into the creation of this platform - and the work continues... the process of Creating is ongoing indeed.
