Photography Made Simple™

CS3 Photography was started in a dorm room on the campus of the University of Central Florida in 2010, but the name goes back a few years earlier when we worked in the 3D-modeling industry and partnered with Google Maps to provide high-quality rich content for their platforms. Our network of professional photographers and long-standing partnership with Google are a few reasons why CS3 is the largest and most experienced nationwide photography company in North America.

CS3’s current 5,000-square-foot headquarters is located in beautiful Winter Park, Florida. Our leadership team is actively involved in all aspects of the company, and we undoubtedly boast the best content editor team in the country. Our business has a nationwide footprint, but you’ll always receive one-on-one care if you have one location or 5,000.

Before CS3 Photography was the leader in nationwide photography services, our firm consisted of one man, Chris Sardinas, freelancing 3D models out of his dorm room. Chris would also make many contributions to Google Earth by creating 3D models of buildings, landmarks, and in some cases entire cities.



Although CS3 was not officially incorporated yet, the name was used as a blending of the founder’s name and the 3D design work produced. At the time, Chris' clients ranged from small architectural firms to small local businesses throughout the southeastern U.S. It was during this time that Chris' relationship with the Google Maps team expanded and would later prove to be the jump start CS3 needed to get off the ground.


Google Trusted

In 2012, Google partnered with CS3 to become the first Google Trusted Agency in the United States. This was the start of our growth, where the company could hire employees and contractors for the first time. CS3 began providing virtual tours and professional photography to clients throughout Florida, then later expanding to neighboring states. It wasn't long until CS3 had photographed in every state and even a couple other countries. This was the first time we began using the phrase 'nationwide photography'.


Steady Growth

In 2016, CS3 became one of the largest nationwide photography providers in the U.S. after completing the single-largest Google Street View project of more than 5,000 locations for a single client. This project helped establish CS3 as a dominant force in the corporate photography industry as well as proving our capabilities to deliver a project of that scale on-time and under budget.


Name Change

To better represent our brand and to reflect the shift away from 3D modeling and web development, our name officially changed from CS3Design to CS3 Photography in 2018. By this time it had already been years since 3D modeling was a part of the focus of CS3 as nationwide photography and virtual tours became our primary focus.


Looking Ahead

The team at CS3 is incredibly grateful to everyone who believed in us throughout our first 10 years in business. We can’t wait to see what the next decade brings.
