Chris Istace

My passion for the outdoors has led to some great opportunities as a photographer and writer, of which I am proud to share with you.

I am always looking for more individuals, organizations, and companies to work with.

One of my specialties is working with destination marketing groups. Equipped with a toolset of photography, trip reports and social media influencer campaigns I have helped several organizations reach a larger audience.

As an outdoor enthusiast, I participate in many activities from hiking, climbing, mountain biking and backpacking. Through these activities, I have been able to partner with companies to provide thorough gear reviews and brand exposure. Focus on gear reviews is given to high-ranking Google search results to achieve best results.

Photography, trip reports, tourism activities, product or attraction reviews and pretty much anything else that we can dream up together.

I've had the pleasure of working with Chris on a number of projects, including blogging, photography & as a social media influencer. He is professional, approachable and trustworthy, and I would recommend his services to anyone. Also, he's a real gem of a guy!

Not only is Chris a positive and energetic team player, his passion for the environment and our community comes through loud and clear in his beautiful photographic work.

We had Chris take a Nemo tent we wanted to feature on one of his backcountry excursions. We appreciated his intuitive knowledge of gear and how the features relate to an actual user. His accompanying photos matched what he wrote about and really helped tell the story. Thanks Chris!
