Bill Christie

Bill Christie was the last owner of Sunny Schick Camera Shop in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana.

When I first began shopping there, nearly 30 years ago, the store was owned by Bill's father, Dana. Bill began working at Sunny Schick when Dana bought the store in 1980, and he took over when Dana retired in 2002.

I made this portrait of Bill on the 90 year old store's last day in business. Bill was retiring and closing the store after a six week long going out of business sale.








Purchase Prints
by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.

Credit card payment is handled through Paypal. You do not have to have a Paypal account. When you checkout, you will be taken to Paypal's site. If you have a Paypal account, sign in and approve the payment.

If you do not have a Paypal account, and do not want to sign up for one, there is a link on the Paypal page that says "Don't have a Paypal Account?" Click it to pay without signing up. It will accept your credit card like a normal credit card payment.

Prints usually ship within 7 days. This allows time for me to make your print, and if you have ordered a framed print, to frame and mat it.

Thank you for supporting my work.
