Matador Ambassador Chris Burkard is a rare talent. At a very young age he has created a look and feel to his photographs that is entirely his own. It is an aesthetic blend of studied landscape composition and action, a pulled back perspective that, in his words, “pays homage to these incredible places we find ourselves” and that “makes the landscape the hero.”

This short film, produced by the crew at Insivity, follows Chris through his daily routine as he seeks out inspiration and discusses his passion for landscapes and how to be challenged in your work.” It’s never enough just to observe,” Chris says. “I always want to be involved.”
