A commercial photographer by trade, Chris has earned a living in his field since 1978, when he graduated from Langara College’s photography program. In the mid-seventies, he began to shoot dance and has photographed and videoed the dance community since then. Acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest dance photographers, his work has appeared in countless newspapers and magazines, nationally and internationally, and on postcards and posters promoting the creations of the majority of choreographers and dance companies in Vancouver. As well, Chris is the resident photographer for the Vancouver International Dance Festival, the Dancing on the Edge Festival, the Chutzpah! Festival, the Talking Stick Festival and shoots regularly for the Scotiabank Dance Centre. Music and theatre are other areas where Chris ventures with great joy.
