Biography - Chris Markes

My interest in photography began when I was 18 years old.(23 now) Throughout many hikes I wanted to be able to communicate to others the beautiful moments in time that I was so lucky to witness. When My first results were awful, I began to study what made the difference between a great image, and one that is lackluster. Also note that I never had anyone "teach" me how to take great pictures. My motivation comes from many places, mostly from within, and photographers famous photographers such as Ansel Adams and many more.

My first camera was a Cannon Rebel G, I was 19 at the time. More money and time and I'm now at the point where I am now, and I'm still learning. I've started shooting large format 4x5 images on a speed graphics camera.

I have just one more year to go as an Economics major at Southern Oregon University, which also is my only client. Like many other photographers, it is my hope to be able to be one of the lucky few who can become successful doing it for a living, while also not losing touch with actually enjoying what I'm doing, in otherwords, I don't want to make photography something that goes from a true love and passion, to frustration becuase of the business side of it.
