Another week down – more photos made, more miles logged, more stories to tell. The past week started in Philly and is coming to a close on an airplane back from the great state of South Carolina. We’ve been getting ready for the end of the year and getting excited for 2013 on top of the usual business of making awesome pictures. It’s been a fun one, so keep reading to see what we’ve been up to these past few days…Read More
When a magazine calls asking to send you to Yellowstone National Park, the first question that runs through your mind is how soon can we leave? Earlier this year, photo editor extraordinaire Caitlin Peters at AARP the Magazine contacted us with an assignment to photograph park ranger John Kerr.
After speaking to John on the phone and learning about the distinct challenges (unpredictable weather, unpredictable wildlife, nonexistent cell service) of working in the northern part of Yellowstone National Park, Chris and I knew that we would definitely be in for an adventure.

A few weeks ago we found ourselves hopping on a flight down to New Mexico a few days earlier than scheduled to avoid an incoming winter storm. Getting out of Philly just in the nick of time, we landed in the southwest on a mission to make some great landscape photos.
They’re in the process of retouching right now and I can’t wait to show them when they’re done, but for know keep reading for more behind the scenes and more of the natural beauty of New Mexico…Read More
It’s almost thanksgiving, and in addition to the turkey, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie comes the real meaning of the holiday – taking a moment to appreciate all of the good in life and be thankful for what you have. In that very spirit and as we get ready to spend a few days off with our friends and family we gathered the entire Crisman team to reflect on this crazy year and all of our experiences so far.Read More
It’s been just over six months since we upgraded our camera game, retiring our workhorse 1Ds Mark III and switching up to the 5D Mark III. I have to admit that making the jump I was a little hesitant, but now that we’ve shot over 25,000 frames through the new camera, I think we’ve absolutely made the right choice.

Whew. What a crazy run. Thankfully it’s Friday and also the 12th day straight we’ve been working, traveling all over and making photos. This trip took us home base in Philly to New Mexico, Los Angeles, the Mojave desert, Washington DC, New York, and back to Philadelphia.
We braved the surprisingly freezing temps and deceiving sands of the desert to make a new body of landscape work, shot a practically extraterrestrial editorial assignment, and spoke about the history of Chris’s career all in the past few days. It all flew by and now that it’s done, here’s our double dose of photos and stories. Keep reading to see what’s kept us busy the past fourteen days…Read More
