ChatterArtist of the Month April 2008

Chris Crisman
I met Chris a few years ago when he came and showed at the monthly Photo Salon. I immediately became a big fan of his photography and was thrilled when he asked me a couple of months ago to work with him on his marketing and new website. Chris was also most supportive to me when my computer died a month ago, which “challenged” our editing process but did not deter us from getting the job done! So here’s the brand new site and a sample image from one of his series.
