Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This director has had several successful careers since leaving his native Montreal. Educated at McGill University, Chechik moved to Milan in the late 1970s and became a well-known fashion photographer. Emigrating to the US in the early 1980s, he made a name for himself as a much-awarded director of TV commercials (AT&T, Hallmark, etc.). He then edged his way into the emerging music video industry and, with the rise of MTV, worked with such artists as Hall & Oates and Van Halen.
