Photographer Chris Owrig (#207) 02-03-13

Well, usually I take Sunday off from posting, but this is a real easy one. This video is totally about inspiration. Although not specifically about portraiture, Chris Orwig is well versed in the subject. Here is a quick bio as appears in

“Chris Orwig is a visual artist who brings passion to all that he does. He is a pro photographer, interactive designer, author, speaker and on the faculty of the world-renowned Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California. Apart from his professional endeavors, Chris enjoys getting out in the great outdoors any way he can - from mountain biking, cycling, camping, surfing, kayaking, snow camping, backpacking, running, etc. He currently lives in SB with his three favorite girls - his wife and (very cute) daughters!”

I have two of his books, and really like both of them.

1. Visual Poetry: A Creative Guide for Making Engaging Digital Photographs

2. People Pictures: 30 Exercises for Creating Authentic Photographs

This video takes about 19 minutes.

Overall, I have been happy with SquareSpace in hosting this site. One killer, however, is occasional irregularities in font size/style that I just cannot get around. Sorry for the huge font above.
