Chris Douglas was born and raised in East Tennessee along the Clinch River in Anderson County. Chris’ interest in photography began at age 10, when he began by snapping photos of his surroundings – wildlife and family hunting trips. These passions have persisted. His love of the outdoors and wildlife continues to fuel the energetic quality of his current work.
While attending the University of Tennessee, Chris was approached by a print scout and was sent to New York to work with world-class photographer Bruce Weber for for famed fashion designer Gianni Versace. For the next four years he lived between New York, Paris and Milan and learned about the inner workings of the fashion business. He further developed his talents as a photographer while working with other notable photographers including Steven Meisel, Arthur Elgort, Norman Seef, Bob Frame and Lance Staedler. It was during those adventurous and educational years that Chris’ developed his standards of exceptional quality and his commitment to providing clients with extraordinary imagery
These days, Chris’ work still reflects his life as an outdoorsman, conservationist and cowboy and expresses the respect and gratitude he has for his Native American lineage. His concepts and images are emotional and engaging; relating a powerful, physical story and capture every detail of his subjects. His 25 years of experience in every facet of the industry have enhanced Chris' skills as a sought-after creative and photographer, and contributed to his work in advertising, commercial, motion, and editorial imagery.
Chris worked on an amazing project for Horses and Hero’s called @500milesproject helping veterans through PTSD and trauma with the gentling process of a mustang. Really excited to hear more about this first hand.
Great Night. Great Art. Great Cause!
