creative producer / videographer / photographer
Cory works in several visual mediums, including photography, imaging and illustration. “But whatever the project type, it always begins with deep discovery,” he said. “I want to thoroughly understand my client’s problem or goal before I start developing on a solution. I ask a lot of questions to get to the root of the issue.”
Most recently, Cory ran a Chicago-based team of about 20 designers, re-touchers and 3-D artists. As the Strategy Manager in charge of imagery for the company’s 3-D e-commerce lifestyle and product design, he led the implementation of new processes, procedures and art direction, while developing creative talent and establishing the company’s visual brand.
Earlier in his career, he built a photography / video studio and worked independently shooting product, portraiture and advertising imagery. He also shot, designed and produced a bi-annual fashion catalog.
Cory earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Art with a specialization in 2-Dimensional Studies from Bowling Green State University. He’s won several honors for his work, including the Presidential Suite Exhibition Award.
