Chris Harris is a professional photo-journalist and narrative photographer.
Since leaving a career of wilderness guiding, pioneering outdoor adventure tourism, teaching, and educating youth in the outdoors both in the school system and working with youth at risk, Chris has been one of this country’s foremost and most respected photographers. He dedicates his photography to bringing awareness and reverence to the value of nature, biodiversity, and the beauty of his home region of British Columbia, the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast.
He is the independent publisher of his own work as books and as fine art photographic prints in his own gallery. Located at his home in the Cariboo, the gallery is a destination for visitors from all parts of the globe.
