Today on the podcast we catch up with photographer Chris Burkard as he drives down a highway somewhere in the American West. Although Chris does not like to be referred to as an instagram photographer, it was his beautiful feed that first led us to his work and his message of getting outdoors and communing with nature. Chris' early days as an artist and his love of painting come through when you look at his large landscapes that he captures with his camera. The layers of light, color, and a well placed subject help put you in the places he gets to visit. Although he still lives in the small Central California beach town that he grew up in, Chris has traveled the world extensively and has a true gift for bringing the viewer with him to amazing remote locations through his photography. He has an infectious attitude and an amazing work ethic, which has allowed him to become a sought after public speaker, including his own Ted X talk about the joy of surfing in ice cold water. Chris gave us two different opportunities to sit down and talk with him and we have a bit of a story to tell when it comes to that. So join in on a road conversation with one of our most requested guests. We talk about the inspiration that nature can give you, finding your own vision as a self taught photographer, leaving a legacy with your work, finding what you are passionate about shooting, and creating a look you can call your own.
