Artist Spotlight — Chris Burkard: Traveling the World

Call of the Wild 2018 wall calendar

We are honored to welcome Chris Burkard to our family of contributing artists for 2018. He captures the grandeur of Mother Nature in heart-stopping detail while conveying the unique spirit of each place. He is very active on Instagram, sharing images from his adventures to over 2.8 million followers.

Chris BurkardAt thirty, photographer Chris Burkard has seen more of the world than most of us could possibly hope to see in several lifetimes. From Iceland, Norway, and the Russian Far East to India, the Pacific Islands, and South America, he captures his journeys in images that bring faraway places to vivid life.

Burkard is often referred to as a surf photographer, and for good reason. He began contributing to SURFER, where he is now staff photographer, in his early twenties. But that job description may leave too much out, since he also shoots adventure travel, epic landscapes, portraiture, street photography, and extreme sports that have nothing to do with the ocean.

Burkard has published several books: The California Surf Project (2006), with friend and co-author Eric Soderquist; Plight of the Torpedo People (2012); Russia: The Outpost Vol. 1 (2013); Distant Shores (2013); and, most recently High Tide: A Surf Odyssey (2015).

Burkard’s commercial clients include Apple, J.Crew, Land Rover, Microsoft, the North Face, Patagonia, Sony, and Swiss International Air Lines. His work has been published in GQ, National Geographic, the New Yorker, Outside, Vogue, and Wired.

Burkard and his wife, Breanne, have two sons, Jeremiah and Forest. They live in Arroyo Grande on California’s Central Coast.
