Lifestyle of the sport, not just the action: Chris Burkard is a self-taught photographer and artist, based in Central Coast California, whose work is layered by surf, outdoor, lifestyle and travel subjects.
Searching for wild, remote destinations and offbeat landscapes, Burkard portrays the humble placement of the human in contrast to nature. At the age of 29, Burkard has established himself as a known name in the surf and outdoor industries, accomplished a deep body of work, held staff and senior photographer positions and has been recognized continually for his distinct creative compositions.
Chris is also a filmmaker and documents its journey through the most original places: on this episode of ON THE ROAD with Chris Burkard, we tell a journey deep into the swiss Alps. He always wanted to travel to this area for its photographic potential, but you truly have to see it to believe it.
