Originally from California, Christian relocated to New York City after obtaining a degree in fashion merchandising. Ferretti worked as an assistant for David LaChapelle, Steven Klein and Annie Leibovitz, followed by five years as Craig McDean’s first assistant and Director of Photography. This formative period gave Ferretti an extensive technical mastery of fashion, portraiture, and beauty lighting.
Christian captures images that in turn, capture the imagination. He engages the senses of his audience through moody, atmospheric images imbued with a dark, dreamlike surrealism. Beauty is redefined into its own language through the utilization of light, shadow and color. The scope of his vision is based on what makes an image vivid, iconic and memorable. He is proficient both in video and stills, commercial and editorial.
His editorial and commercial clients include: Interview Magazine, V Magazine, Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, Revlon, Swarovski, Covergirl, Buxom Cosmetics, Milk Makeup, and Shiseido.
