Chris Gibisch, photographer
Although a Respiratory Therapist by profession, I spend most of my time pursuing my passion for the outdoors through climbing and hang gliding. A career that only demands three days of my week allows me the time to explore the world we live in.
Through my recreational pursuits, I get to experience the world in ways many people never will. Along the way, I try to capture these moments and experiences through a lens.
I developed my passion for photography as a senior in high school. The art of capturing images and producing prints captivated me. Images from photographers such as Ansel Adams and Galen Rowel impressed me and challenged me to strive for their high standards.
When I was introduced to the world of climbing, and later hang gliding, I thought I could combine these passions through photography. The idea of capturing images from difficult positions that yield unique perspectives drives me to excel and proves the most rewarding.
Today I make sure to bring my camera every time I’m outside. Regardless of what I’m doing, I want to be ready to capture an image when the opportunity presents itself.
