chris crisman advertising photography 2015

It’s a new year.

And with that we’re off to a new start. As we sit here in the studio with snow falling around us, there’s a moment of both tranquility and anticipation. We’re back in action and ready to get cracking in 2015. After a much needed pause in the action, the new adventure of 2015 is upon us and we’re already working on new assignments, planning new personal projects, looking into picturesque locations and seeking out unique and beautiful talent – all the while, making sure the every day we come to work is one where we’re having fun and doing it for the sake of making amazing images.

That is to say, it’s pretty much business as usual.

The Crisman team has a big year ahead, and as always we’ll be sharing it as we go. There’s always this blog, Chris’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts to stay up to date on the action. We’ll do our best to keep posting as this train keeps rolling – make sure you enjoy the ride.

chris crisman best photos 2014

We can’t believe that it’s already time to close the books on 2014. Forgive the cheesy expression, but it literally felt like only yesterday that we were gearing up for the year and jumping into our first shoots in January. In keeping with tradition from last year, we felt it was necessary to pause and take a look back through the images we’ve created this year. It’s been a tough edit – we tried to pick our top 10, but couldn’t stop there and landed at 13. We’ve made some many photos that we’re happy with and have to leave out a few that we’re not able to share quite yet. That being said, we wanted to share our favorites thus far, the best of the best.

chris crisman fall lifestly photos

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.

chris crisman field and stream hereos of conservation ken miracl

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. The Third story we’re sharing is that of Ken Miracle, champion of the Chukar and Sage Grouse. We traveled to Boise Idaho earlier this summer to meet and photograph Ken, who made sure to show us locations that offered the true natural beauty of that part of our country. There’s a ton more photos to share – keep reading to see them all.

chris crisman 50 states project arizona

We’re moving to the next great state on our list, Arizona. The Crisman team has traveled to Arizona a handful of times to shoot in the past few years, but the one assignment (over the course of two trips) that has really stuck with us was shooting a story on forest fires, logging, and forest conservation for The Nature Conservancy.

The crux of this assignment was to shoot the fire itself – something that a freak snowstorm in early April made impossible to do. Fire or not, we still made portraits, braving the elements to photograph essential people and landscapes for the story.

Ultimately, our editors at The Nature Conservancy decided it was best it we went back in warmer weather in search of a real fire to shoot – which, thanks to the help of our partners at the National Forest Service, we obviously found.

We owe a big thank you especially to Mary Lata, for taking us into the blaze itself, and her crew for watching over us and making sure we made it out of there safe and sound (albeit a little bit smoky).

chris crisman american craft enviormental portrait

Some of our best days on set are spent working with other artists. Every subject who finds their way in front of Chris’s lens has something unique to offer, but more often than not artists see the world and themselves in such special ways that some of our best images come from the collaboration we can develop with other creatives. Those days are why we love when the editors at American Craft call with a new assignment. These shoots in particular were to honor Philadelphia artisans being inducted into the American Craft College of Fellows, a prestigious group of artists who have contributed significantly to the craft community.

We spent a few days earlier this summer collaborating with a few Philadelphia artisans. Keep reading to see more…
