087: Chris Cardoza of Doza Visuals

Guest Chris Cardoza is the Founder & Director of Doza Visuals, a Boston-based media production company with experience filming and photographing across the globe. You may be familiar with Cardoza’s work locally via the artist documentaries he produces for ICA Boston. Cardoza’s entrepreneurial journey was preceded by a childhood culminating as a multi-sport athlete in high school. Sports were everything to him, until injuries crept into his life and ripped away his first passion. This is when he discovered a new calling in photography and video and he brought that same energy, determination and dedication to his new craft. Although playing sports came to a halt, in this episode we learned that his relationship with sports found a way to blossom in a creative way. For the past decade, Doza has been shooting stills and videos for some of the most recognizable brands and publications in the world. He’s worked with companies such as Reebok, ESPN, TB12 Sports, VICE and many more. When he’s not behind the lens pointing his camera at athletes such as Olympic Gold Medalist Aly Raisman or NFL Superstar JJ Watt, you can find Doza traveling to countries such as Rwanda and documenting how sports are affecting the world. Outside of his work, Cardoza spends his time watching documentaries, flying drones, trail running and spending time with his newborn twins. On this episode of Boston Speaks Up, we chat with Cardoza about juggling parenthood with running a startup, traveling in Rwanda with renowned Boston sports journalist Jackie MacMullan, what it’s like working with star athletes, and what it takes to start your own business.
