Kaspi Creative Founders’ Biographies

There is no denying it… Kaspi Creative is a family start-up.  Incorporated in 2017 Kaspi Creative was established to manage the already existing FatCamera portfolio and develop a new product and portfolio.  The four founders include Christopher and Terri Lynn Futcher cousins to Jonny and Meilani Long.  (Christopher and Meilani are cousins.)

Christopher Futcher is the CEO of Kaspi Creative Inc. and a founder of the FatCamera portfolios.

He spent six years in the US Navy, completing at the top of his class in the two year grueling Helicopter Search and Rescue Swimmer training.  Being stationed in Japan for four years he learned basic conversational Japanese and ran the Tokyo Marathon twice.

In 2008 after being honorably discharged from the navy Christopher entered the world of visual media production.  He has successfully lead multiple teams resulting in 10 consecutive years of top and bottom line growth.

When Christopher is not thinking about work he can be found reading, meditating, running, water skiing, and spending time with his wife and three young children out on their hobby farm, at the cottage or exploring the city.

Terri Lynn Futcher

In addition to producing and directing shoots Terri Lynn home schools three wonderful children.  A flexible schedule allows her to travel with her family providing a unique educational experience.
