Chris Baker has been an active photographer since taking his first photo with a Kodak "Baby Brownie" in the mid 60's. Next was the Polaroid "Swinger" which gave instant pictures. Having studied photography in the late 70's and early 80's, he set up his own darkroom and taught his two sons the art of photography. Today one son is an active photographer in Boulder, Co and the other is an active film maker residing in Charlotte, NC. When not shooting photography, Chris can be found Mountain Biking or actively involved in the Wine business, his other two passions. Chris resides in Brevard, NC with his beautiful partner and soulmate Tracey and their two dogs, Kep (aka Horace Kephart) the Mountain Cur and Lottie (the PLott Hound) both rescued.
