A quick, last minute shoot for AQUA magazine with actor, playwright, novelist, swordsman and as AQUA states: “Renaissance Man“. Chris is also a laid-back, family man and all-around good guy who hides away on Salt Spring Island’s south end. I met him at his home on a warm summer evening. The goal was to create an image that would work for the magazine cover (generally a ‘grabber’ shot that can co-mingle with the various text elements). The complex issue theme required, “Chris and metal” in the shot. His octagonal writing studio in the late day light seemed to emulate the content of his novels.
A few more shots of Chris and one of his son, who also acts and is learning swordsmanship:
