Chris Graber lives in Southern California and escapes the the corporate world as often as possible. Cramming the maximum number of so–called vacation days into each year, he travels near and far in search of seldom seen landscapes, new faces and a better understanding of the rest of the world.
A third generation amateur photographer, Chris developed a passion for exploration and photography while living in Hawaii. Since then, he has traveled to the Andes, Central America, Tibetan Plateau and East Greenland.
Thank you for the use of your photographs. More work here.
