Christopher Blair was born in Southern California and lived around the country until his family settled in Oregon. Chris’ first career was in newspaper journalism. He won recognition for his news and feature writing and was honored as the Society of Professional Journalists’ Rookie of the Year. Writing and editing for five Oregon newspapers, Chris learned photography from some of the Pacific Northwest's finest news photographers. Their techniques and storytelling methods influence his work to this day.
After earning his master’s degree in education, Chris enjoyed a teaching career. He used photography to teach astronomy to at-risk youth in Portland, Ore. He moved to New Hampshire to become a school administrator and now lives in Nashua, easily within reach of Boston and the surrounding area.
New England’s people, culture, and landscapes inspired Chris to devote more of his time to photography soon after he arrived. He began selling his work and helped shoot his first wedding soon after. His scenic images have been sold in restaurants, coffee shops, and craft fairs around New Hampshire and Maine. Chris has experience with every kind of photography, from weddings to parties to corporate events. Chris is the right guy for the job he will bring joy and experience to your event.
