Chris Bidleman is an award winning Portland, OR based photographer that sells and licenses fine art photography. His focus is on nature, landscape and wildlife photography. He grew up in the Pacific Northwest where he gained his appreciation of mountain landscapes, ocean coastlines plus the lakes and streams of Oregon and Washington. Chris has traveled in many countries in Europe including Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Mexico plus lived throughout the US but now lives in Vancouver, WA.
Chris is also a part-time musician and has played professionally for over 30 years on the West Coast. Music has given him great insight to the emotional side of the arts. With his photography he sees the colors, shadows, light, textures and structures within a scene much like he hears the different parts of the music for each instrument--the rhythms, note patterns, chords, dynamics and the blend of all those elements coming magically together. Ones emotional state of mind and mood can change just by connecting with nature and often Chris can “hear” the music of what he is seeing and photographing.
