The Christie's Photographic Team

The Christie’s Photographic Team

Great businesses are built by a strong team . We have worked hard to gather a loyal team of multi-talented people across the United States. These folks are the gears that turn behind to scenes to keep events scheduled and clients happy.


Bob Christie
Bob Christie
President
Bob started Christie’s Photographic in 1983. By 1986, he turned his sights onto the convention and meetings business and has never looked back. With a team of over 75 professionals, Christie’s photographs over 6500 events a year, almost all on a deadline for publication. He currently resides in Oakland, Florida with the love of his life, Lisa, and their furry, four-legged child. When not managing or working with clients, he loves to garden and participate in offshore ocean racing, with his team having won the world championship in 2006.
Keith Thrash
Keith Thrash
General Manager
Christie’s General Manager Keith Thrash began his lifetime career in photography at a young age, creating a darkroom with his grandfather’s equipment in the 6th grade. With no enlarger at the time, he used a lightbulb and switch to make contact sheets. He continued developing his skills through college, where he earned a degree from the Ohio Institute of Photography in 1979. When not managing or photographing events, Keith likes to see how many golf balls he can lose in one round or spends his time fishing.
