About the Photographer

CHRIS BORGARD is a Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo) alum who works as an exercise physiologist and a trainer for professional athletes. During offseason breaks, his many landscape photographs come from treks across the Western United States, Canada, Europe and South America; they are captured using only a Nikon digital P50 handheld camera (albeit the last of its kind with wide angle zoom, well-suited for landscape photos).

“Possessing a good set of legs and a sense for knowing just when to stop in your tracks and shoot a photo are just as valuable as any high tech camera when photographing wilderness and nature.” - CB
