[Chris appreciates any and all attention sent his way. He's kind of thick, though, so make it as easy as possible and send him a message if you'd like a reply.]

Chris Tait is a Calgary-based photographer whose work mostly fits into weddings, music and editorial, but extends to almost anything that piques his fancy, which is a lot.
Chris started photographing while living off a Greyhound bus and coast-to-coast Canadian park benches on five dollars a day. When he got back to his old stompin' grounds, he really started getting into it at the local university student weekly, getting his first taste of photojournalism and editorial illustration. Working a few years later as a photo editor, he got a chance to see how the other side lives: setting ridiculous deadlines, managing volunteers, working 80 hours a week and sleeping on the office couch more than he'd have cared to admit at the time.
Since then, Chris has expanded his portfolio all over the place, from weddings and fashion to fine art and documentary work.
He is currently finishing a long overdue degree in English lit and is looking to extend his photo-related contacts, especially (but not limited to) in and around Calgary and Edmonton. New models or those interested in padding their portfolio with new projects welcome. Chris loves TFP shoots, but is unfortunately limiting the amount of unpaid work he does to very special projects. He usually uses randoms and friends, but has recently gained an appreciation for people who actually take this whole photo thing seriously. All he asks is that you're interested in having fun, willing to prepare in advance and contribute something to the shoot. Oh, and that you're into high-fives. He's a pretty personable guy and gets along with most people.
Apart from photo-related time-wasting, Chris likes mountain biking, downhill skiing, longboarding, travelling for no reason, those little bottles of alcohol that come from airplanes and hotel mini-bars, beard growing, complaining about films, being greater than or equal to fifteen per cent cooler than most grandmothers and writing entirely too long about himself in the third person.
