cc2014027 - Conservationist and Fisherman Bill Anderson photogra

We are honored to be involved in the 2014 Field and Stream Heroes of Conservations project. For the third year running, we have had the opportunity to travel all over this great nation meeting and photographing the six conservation finalists. Since 2005, the magazine has been recognizing these outstanding individuals who work tirelessly to promote, improve, or protect wildlife and their habitats all across the country.

This year we received the call from our editors to hit the road and photograph all six of the subjects. The journey lasted weeks and took us from Pennsylvania to Tennessee, Minnesota to North Dakota, and Washington to Idaho. As with all of the years before this, we were humbled by the generosity and efforts of the finalists – we took a wild tour of the country and have plenty of stories and photos to share. Our forth story took the Crisman team right into our own backyard of Pennsylvania to spend the day fishing and photographing with conservationist Bill Anderson. We may have been shooting close to home, but that didn’t stop the adventure. Keep reading to see more…

It’s that time of year again. There’s a chill in the air, the leaves are changing, and daylight starts to become scarce. With thanksgiving right around the corner, and autumn in full swing, we couldn’t help but take a look back in the archives to a lifestyle shoot from fall 2012.

Our team spent the day with a handful of great talent – capturing a fall camping trip and all of the fun that went along  with it. We were lucky to have the perfect autumn backdrop and beautiful models to work with.

Thanks to our editors at the New York Observer, we recently made the trip up to New York City to photograph all star NY Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist. Not only a world class athlete but also an immaculately dressed and adventurous photo subject, our 20 minutes on an NYC rooftop with King Henrik flew by as we shot a handful of awesome images.

Knowing that we didn’t have any time to waste, we arrived early and pre-lit four different setups for Mr. Lundqvist. When your subject is used to the fast-paced action of NHL hockey, you better not have them waiting around on set.

Of course, as soon as he saw the opportunity, the daredevil goalie hopped on this conveniently placed ladder for a few more action shots.

After we had wrapped up all the shots on the rooftop, there was just one more task at hand.  Chris and King Henrik hopped into his Bentley and they tore around midtown Manhattan – all in the name of making great photos.

chris crisman kevin kline portraits photos

A few weeks ago, our editors at the New York Observer called with the opportunity to photograph none other than the actor and comedian Kevin Kline. A true professional, Mr. Kline was an amazing subject who was generous with his time and open to some of our crazier ideas. We owe a big thank you to our editors at the Observer as well as Kevin and his team for making this possible.

We shot a handful of options, both studio portraits and environmental setups. We had the luxury of shooting in the rooftop bar at the Archer Hotel, offering us beautiful views of midtown Manhattan.

And at this point you’re probably wondering where the cookies and milk came from. No this was not some clever prop that we had planned all along – it was a request of Mr. Kline’s. When we explained we were shooting him sitting at the bar and asked what he wanted, the answer was simple “milk and cookies.” Genius.
