Who is Chris Bray?
With his self-taught photography skills honed in some of the most demanding and inspiring environments on Earth, Chris Bray - award winning Australian Geographic photographer and Lowepro ambassador - has a knack for simplifying and explaining photography. Heading to Antarctica in 2008 he put together his first course, and now hundreds of workshops later, his highly acclaimed '1 Day Photography Courses' have enlightened thousands, and his company expanded into running renowned small-group photo safaris to the world's most wonderful places. An adventurer at heart, Chris grew up sailing around the world, has lead world-first expeditions across the arctic (now a feature film 'The Crossing' and book '1000 Hour Day
') and together with Jess, the first people to sail a junk-rig yacht
through the infamous Northwest Passage above Canada and Alaska. A successful author, motivational speaker and conservationist, Chris recently founded 'Conservation United
', crowd-funding the world's critical conservation projects.
Chris's work has appeared in everything from National Geographic (as well as Australian and Canadian Geographic) to TIME Magazine and Discovery Channel, and even translated into Dutch, French and Czech.
