Chris Murray

Syracuse, NY

I am a professional fine-art nature photographer and educator working primarily in the landscape of my home, the woods, lakes, mountains, and streams of New York State. My interest in photographing landscapes is derived mainly from my love of the natural world, the same love that led me to choose geology as my first profession. For me, the appeal of photography lies in the opportunity to create art in an environment that ceaselessly inspires and invigorates me. In photography I strive to make images that are a reflection of my sensibilities and how I see the world, which by definition means I am creating something truly unique, as seen through my eyes alone. My goal is to make expressive images that are not literal documents of a place, but rather my response to that place. With time I have realized that my best work comes from areas with which I am most familiar and have a deep connection. 

I have been practicing my art for over 20 years. My work has appeared in many publications including Popular Photography, Shutterbug, Adirondack Life, Life in the Finger Lakes, and New York State Conservationist magazines, among others. My photographs also grace the halls of the University of Rochester Medical Center.
