About Old Sad Songs Photography

When was the last time that you experienced photography?



Introducing Chris Ruiz

Photographer, Inbound & Social Media Consultant

Everyone has a favorite old sad song! What's yours?

Having spent almost a decade working in the service industry, I changed careers in 2012 and focused my professional life on working in business-to-business companies. Around this time, I learned how to shoot photos on film using a plastic 35mm film camera.

Being a self-taught photographer with a strong background in shooting film gave me a skill set different from many photographers today, which shows throughout my work. I focus on capturing stories through the lens of a camera and by researching the history of what I take photographs.

Please send me a message and ask me about my favorite old sad songs.
