A Photographic Nomad

2018 was a departure for Christopher in more ways then one. He terminated his lease in Austin, Texas, put his stuff in storage and refocused his entire life on traveling, with an emphasis on photography. Austin's ABC television affiliate, KVUE, did a story on his activities which can be viewed here. That nomadic photography collection can be found on his Nomadic Favorites gallery.

October 2018 marked the 10th month of his nomadic lifestyle. He's visited 22 states, including 13 national parks, monuments and recreation areas before he lost count. He's popped into Canada and over to Iceland. More travel in 2019 is planned.


The Over Austin Collection

From 2013 until 2018 Chris photographed the City of Austin, Texas and the surrounding Texas Hill County under the name Over Austin. That Over Austin Collection can be found here  in two sections: Chris' Over Austin Favorites, his best work, and the Entire Over Austin collection, which numbers of 1,000 photos. Chris returns to Austin from time to time to visit friends and family and photograph the area.


Drone Photography

Chris holds both a FAA Remote Pilot (part 107) certificate and a Private Pilot Certificate. He has been flying planes since the 1980s and drones since the 2010s. He operates Flying Camera Media, an FAA commercially licensed, insured and certified professional aerial photography firm, flying state-of-the-art drones, providing clients with stunning video and photos. Chris is also the founder of  Austin Drone Pilots, a group of 3,000+ professionals, amateurs, and “drone curious”. The group is focused on sharing safety best practices.
