My not so typical story.
Hola! My name is Chris and I'm a lifestyle photographer based in Chicago focused on capturing emotionally raw imagery for adventurous spirits.
About me... I'm a native Chicagoan and believe in traveling far and capturing local. I specialize in outdoor and natural light photography. But I also do food photography and small events. I'm driven by catching light and candid beauty in a way that leaves my clients feeling confident and excited to work with me again. Everybody and every place has a story and my mission is to capture and share those stories.
The name... Nomad + Camera. I'm a nomad at heart, battling an addiction to maps and menus. I booked a one-way ticket from Chicago to Australia in 2013 and have been on the go since. I only took a backpack and my camera bag when departed the States, not knowing which direction my life was going to go, but I was determined to make it work. Since then I’ve been to over 30 countries, 6 continents, slept in all sorts of places, tried some really odd food (including bull penis which supposed to have some beneficial nutrients), formed many incredible relationships, experienced so many different cultural traditions, and most importantly learned anything was possible with determination and positive thinking. Don't believe me? Check out Behind the Postcards, my interview series with nomadic and businessminded souls from around the globe who are able to balance work and travel!
