Chris Profile Composite

Hi. My name is Chris. Thanks for visiting. I thought I'd share a few tidbits about me because I think it's important that we have some things in common.  This will make your photography session more fun and enjoyable for you and for me.  Fun creates inspiration.   

My biggest pet peeve is mindless chatter about the weather. If I haven't lost you yet, read on and see if you'd like to spend some time together.

In no particular order, here's a few facts about me:

  • I like Belgium beers.

  • I am passionate about technology.

  • I love one-off, unique restaurants.

  • I love European style board games. Settlers of Catan is the best game ever created.

  • I'm addicted to travel. My wife and I quit our jobs, rented out our house, and traveled for a year so I could shoot landscape photography.

  • I love the SouthWest; Colorado and Utah in particular.

  • I love playing in nature, doing things like kayaking, backpacking, climbing, and fly fishing.

  • I hate poison ivy, like really hate it.

  • I love to cook.

  • I don't watch much TV and don't really care about ball sports.

  • Adrenaline sports are much more interesting and one of my favorite things to photograph.

  • The best books I've read are Patriot Games, Andre Agassi's autobiography and the Peaceful Warrior.

  • I have a son named Milo and a daughter named Amayah.  I absolutely love being a Dad.

  • I'm married to my best friend.
