bio.

biopic.jpg

Chris Ritter (he/his) is a writer and photographer from Lexington​, Virginia. In his work⁠ — and most other things, too⁠ — Chris lives a split life between the outdoors and music. Chris' writing and photography has spanned from Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee, to the coldwater surf scene of Maine, to the mountains of Chilean Patagonia, and beyond.

 

At twenty-five years old, Chris continues to write and shoot around the world in both open wilderness spaces and packed music venues. Chris thinks he shouldn't have to choose between these things. Chris also thinks that making a website dedicated to both means that he'll never have to.
