Chris Burkhard is on our hot list.  Browsing through his photos has sparked a hungry motivation to go on adventures with our cameras.  Self taught, Burkhard began shooting on the cusp of the transition from film to digital (2003).  Then in 2009, Burkard was contracted by Patagonia, Inc. as a project photographer and in 2010, Surfer Magazine offered Burkard a position as Senior Staff Photographer, a title he has continues to hold. Follow along on his tumblr.
