Paragliding Big Sur

Social Media is a strange thing. Sometimes it feels like you’re fighting for likes, shares, comments and numbers, then other times it becomes the very best platform to connect and link up with the best people possible.
Last weekend was one of those occasions where it proved to be the gateway to something new and exciting!.

I stumbled across a comment by Cromac O’Brian saying he’d be flying in Big Sur this weekend. I got curious and got in touch with him and it turns out he’s a passionate adventurer and paraglider. After a short conversation it was obvious I was going to be going to Big Sur for the weekend and shoot whatever was going to be happening there. If I could score a ride paragliding over California’s most impressive piece of coastline that was a bonus of course.

With my trusted E-M1 and a couple of lenses the hunt for breathtaking views, golden light and empty spaces was on…

The Chris Burkard Internship

I know how to use a camera, I’ve never really touched anything but full manual mode. So why the heck am I doing an unpaid internship that required me to move to from Sydney to California?
Because I love photography and I want to learn what it takes to make this passion of mine something I can live off.
When it comes to learning new things there is nothing better than placing yourself on that hard school bench again. Shut your mouth, do what you are told and learn from the…
