CHRYSTYNE IS A MODEL, PHOTOGRAPHER, AND ARTIST BASED IN CHICAGO, IL USA. Her modeling career began in 2001 when renowned fetish photographer Lee Higgs discovered her at a concert. After their first shoot, Lee told Chrystyne she had tremendous potential and encouraged her to explore modeling full-time. Since then she has worked with hundreds of photographers worldwide and has embarked on her own photographic career. Identifying as a “visual wanderer,” she works intuitively to capture and emulate the emotions at the core of the human condition. She brings a healthy dose of humor and passion to the table and takes pride in creating environments that bring out the best in her subjects and collaborators.
