Bio

Through his images and writing, Chris Collard believes in telling a story. His goal is not only sharing a vivid visualization of a place, but also bringing the uniqueness of its people and culture to life.

Chris has published hundreds of articles and thousands of images in dozens of magazines on five continents. Assignments have sent him to the Australian Outback in search of the giant lace goanna, to the Moroccan Sahara to live with a twentieth-generation Sahrawi nomad, and into the jungles of Venezuela and Africa’s Kalahari Desert.

His work has been featured in National Geographic ADVENTURE, Cigar Aficionado, American Way, Car & Driver, Road & Track, Overland Journal, Heartland USA and more than a dozen other U.S. magazines. Corporate clients include: Jeep, Mopar, Chrysler, Warn, ARB and Disabled Sports USA, to name a few, and he is the US correspondent for print magazines in Russia, Spain, South Africa, Australia, Malaysia, the UK and Czechoslovakia.

Chris is a self-taught photographer and a strong believer that if we work hard and have a vision, the world is our oyster.  -Chris says, “Adventure comes in many packages – Some are as distant and grand as Antarctica, some are as small and close as your backyard.” His comfort zone, and where he does his best work, is on the path less traveled.
