My name is Kris. I have been photographing emotional landscapes since I first snuck my Dad's Minolta out of the house in 6th grade. Then in High School I would on occasion skip my early morning classes to tramp around the forests in the fog with that same camera. The ever changing moods of the clouds and the rain have always captivate me. Last year someone asked me if they could use one of my Newport Beach Temple pictures to give out to Primary Children for special occasions in an Irvine CA Stake. I was thrilled to share my love for Temples and decided to shoot a collection of LDS Temles. I wanted to express more than just architectural lines, or something standard you could find at Deseret Book Stores. I wanted to convey the power of this earth interacting with the home of it's Creator... I hope you enjoy my work. Please feel free to contact me for any reason. If you wish to have custom text added to any picture, I would be happy to put a name, the temple name, or a scripture in one of the dark corners of any of my prints. Since I fulfill all orders personally, please send me a note with special requests and I will call if I need further clarification.
