About the Presenter:
Christopher Bain, President, Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society
When people ask, “what do you do?” I’ve always answered: I’m a photographer. Simple enough. Shooting Kodachrome “back in the day” and digitally ever since the dawn of this far-better medium, photography is what I do and who I am. For the longest time it involved wearing three distinctly different hats: Photographer, Photography Editor (of other photographer’s work) and Photography Director, producing and directing photo shoots for cookbooks and craft books. This visual life has now expanded into video for compelling book trailers, stills and video from my drone, and 360-degree fully immersive panoramic tours. Obviously I ‘ve had to make room for additional hats. It’s all fun, so I suppose I’m very lucky!
