Here’s a quick interview we had with Chris, you won’t regret checking out his awesome pics.

Q. What is your favorite thing/place to photograph?

A. I guess it would be landscapes, wildlife, skiing, snowboarding, and climbing.
My favorite place would probably be Morain lake. It’s almost impossible to take a bad shot there.

Q. How long have you been taking photos?

Q. Which photo is your favorite and why?

A. I have a few favorite photos, but I think the ones I am currently most proud of would be the shot of Hotel Portillo under the milky way. The response from friends, other staff, and the resort owners has been pretty amazing. The other would be shots from the ice climb “Slipstream”. It is one of the longest and most dangerous in North America. I shot with an ultra telephoto and I think I am one of the first people to capture the climb in that way.
