Her twenty years as a senior research scientist, her decades of teaching and leadership in the informal science education arena and her years of editorial sports and event photography give her an eye for precision, composition and story-telling. In addition to coaching photographers through personal photography projects, Chris is a mentor, a frequent speaker, offers photo critiques and juries competitions for photography associations across North Carolina. She has successfully completed the PPA Judges Workshop and has been part of 4 juries at PPA State Affiliate competitions in 2020.

Chris will help you learn how to use personal project photography as a tool to take your work to another level. Find an additional revenue stream, increase your creativity, learn a new skill, get out of a rut, or find inspiration.

In this workshop, you will discover the tools to determine the kind of project you could do, how to get started, how to get past the roadblocks, where to find resources, how to identify new opportunities, what kind of output you will target, and how to know when you get there.

By the end of the session, you will have everything you need to plan and carry out a personal photography project!

Chris holds the PPA Master of Photography, Master Artist and Craftsman degrees and is a Certified Professional Photographer. She is a member of The Image Salon, The Professional Imaging Group of Eastern NC (PPA local affiliate), The Professional Photographers of NC (PPA state affiliate), The Professional Photographers of America and the American Society of Photographers.
