Millions of years of Ice, Wind, Rock & pressure to make this photograph. Almost doesn’t seem right that it only took 1/100th of a second to capture

Hard to think of a caption for this photograph I shot last evening… It was one of those once in a lifetime opportunities.

The helicopter was doors off… Hanging out by a harness we peered down over the Canadian Rockies, we saw colors in the sky we had never seen before. Glaciers surrounding huge peaks, lined with aquamarine lakes. That is an experience I will never forget.


The pilot made us get every layer of clothing we owned on.. The temps in the chopper was -100F with windchill. 🙏

QuestionHey man, put all the cameras and gear aside. I need advice on the other stuff. I'm 17 and a junior in high school. I'm someone lucky who has found what they truly love at a young age. But at the same time I don't really know where to go from here. How do I make a career out of this? Answer

chrisburkard:

Thanks for writing.  My best piece of advice is to get out there and explore.  Get out of your comfort zone and you will be surprised with the images you will create.  Second, look at local companies around the area that you have an interest in and see if you can create images that will appeal to their brand.  See how they are selling themselves and see how you can make those images better.  Another thing is persistence.  That is going to be your best friend.  Not giving up even when you have been knocked down.  This isn’t going to happen over night so you need to grind and keep on grinding.  I hope these answer some of your questions.  Feel free to write back with more. 
Cheers,
-Chris B
