Chris Perry was born, raised and continues to reside in northern Minnesota which is home to the Boundary Waters. This, of course, impelled his love affair with nature and also sparked his deep desire to help others see the importance of protecting our delicate environment.
Chris' enthusiasm for nature and night photography radiates in each of his photographs, as does his love of our home, the northwoods of Minnesota. Chris' many subjects are captured in the most unique and powerful composition, each presenting his perspective of beauty in wildlife, landscape, aurora and night photographs. Chris truly loves what he does. He hopes that you enjoy every photograph as much as he enjoys taking them. More than that, he hopes that they remind you to pay attention to the small, ordinary pieces of your everyday life and to not let these simple beauties go on unnoticed or unappreciated.
During these last ten years as a professional photographer, Chris has been fortunate enough to take numerous photographic journeys, some of which have begun hundreds of miles away but most of which have begun right out our back door. Though he greatly enjoys and appreciates the beauty that he finds elsewhere, his deepest passion is still for his home territory deep in the woods of the Boundary Waters in gorgeous northern Minnesota. This gallery presents Chris the opportunity to share not only his true passion for photography but also the evocative beauty of Minnesota with each of you.
