As you might have guessed, I am Kris. I am a photographer and teacher in Portland, OR. Spending most of my life in Tennessee and the South in general, I have a very keen interest in stories, story telling and creating images of value. It probably comes from the various musical influences that grow on you in that part of the world. I don't play music, though I wish I could, but I sure do like the sound of it.
I am also one half of an ongoing project we're calling Mumble Street Stories. Briefly, we meet with people, create portraits and get a personal story - sports fans, immigrants, musicians, student loan holders, it's an ongoing project, very much still in development. The point is honesty, trust, curiosity and quality. I hope you enjoy the gallery here as well as the official site at MumbleStreetStories.
Please feel free to contact me about portraits, projects or work of any type - I'm all ears and ready when you are. Thanks for coming by and hopefully I'll see you around.
