Cristi Dame’s photos are the result of a combination of talent, hard work, and personality: Upbeat, Adaptable, Creative, Youthful, Imaginative, and Dynamic are all characteristics that describe Cristi Dame. As a young teen, Cristi received a priceless gift from her father: he gave her the camera he had once used. It was his gift that led Cristi to discover a passion and talent for photography and to use photography as a form of self-expression. It soon became her artistic medium of choice. The camera later became her logo, symbolizing both the gift she was given and serving as a precious reminder of her ability to share her gift with the world.
