We’re excited to share some brand new work today! Our newest personal conceptual portrait, Wildman. Another image that has literally been years in the making, we just wrapped up this portrait and couldn’t wait to get it online.
Make sure to head over to www.crismanphoto.com to see it in full screen glory and stay tuned in the coming weeks for the full behind the scenes blog post about the shot.

A portion of our Escalante assignment for The Nature Conservancy took us to a place where we’ve never made pictures before, a place that afforded a truly unique and inspiring point of view, and a place where we really, really needed to make sure Chris didn’t drop the camera.
For the first time, the Crisman team took to the skies to shoot Aerial photography of southern Utah to capture visuals that would help show the changing landscape of the Escalante region as well as illustrate the problematic nature of the invasive species the folks on the ground are working so hard to eradicate.

The Escalante is remote, vast, and wild. From the desert floor to well over 10,000 feet, this region follows the course of the Escalante river, a twisted, winding, and beautiful river stretching from southern Utah into Arizona. This unparalleled beauty is under siege though – invasive species threaten the vulnerable ecosystem of the river and pose a threat to all plant and animal life in the area, including those who take it upon themselves to remedy the situation.
In the fall of 2013 we spent a week in the Escalante, shooting stills and motion for The Nature Conservancy. Our goal was not only to document the people involved and their conservation efforts, but to bring the river itself to life, a prominent player in the cast of characters that make up this wildly remote and beautiful landscape.
Our experiences in the Escalante were so diverse that we couldn’t limit the story to one blog post. Over the month of April, we’ll be sharing different parts of our behind the scenes story. Today we’re excited to share some of the images that ran in the story as well as behind the scenes from our adventure. Keep reading for more…
As this year comes to a close, we wanted to find a fitting way to finish up the excellent twelve months that 2013 has provided for us. We were thinking of ways to adequately pay homage to the photos we created and after taking a step back and looking at all of the images, we felt the need to put ink on paper and commit to the photos we’ve created this year.
Continuing the tradition of printing and binding our work, we created this collection of our top photos from 2013. Printed and bound by hand in our studio, the books themselves may only be a very small run, but we still wanted to share the images inside – what we consider to be our best work. Enjoy!
Looking back on these images, I can’t help but remember not only how, why, and where we made the photos, but the subjects themselves – all of the incredible people we’ve met and had the honor of shooting over the past twelve months. Thank you to everyone who’s helped us make 2013 special. It’s been a great year.

As the year goes on, the pace just seems to keep picking up, moving faster and faster – whether we’re barreling down a desert highway in a truck headed to a remote region in southern Utah, or taking off into the clouds on a flight to our next shoot. All puns aside, October has certainly flown by, taking us from Philadelphia to Atlanta, California, NYC, Las Vegas, Arizona, Utah and many places in between. It’s only right that we recap the past 31 days and share some photos and stories from the adventures that have kept us busy the past month. Keep reading for more…
We’re just getting back to the studio after a long run of shoots that took us from the coast of California to the desert & mountains of the Southwest. It’s great to be back home in Philadelphia for a minute, but our recent adventures couldn’t help remind us of trips out west earlier this year and some brand new landscape work that we’re excited to share. From Arizona to Nevada, Utah to Wyoming – keep reading to see more new landscapes and behind the scenes…
It was just about this time back in 2011 that Chris hopped a flight across the Atlantic ocean and landed in Rome – Headed to Tuscany for a week of shooting and taking in the beautiful sights, he made the most of his time in Italy, by translating the beautiful country into photos for all of us to enjoy.
Rome, Tuscany, Assisi, Chris and his camera covered everything he could, creating beautiful landscape photos along the way.
The Italian countryside is absolutely an inspiring landscape to bring before any camera lens. We are lucky to have captured even the smallest portion back in the fall of 2011. Here’s to the hope that we’ll be back in the future to finish the job!
