Chris Anderson started his photography journey at a young age in eastern Washington state, learning from his older brother who was an Emmy Award winning professional photographer who had studied at Brooks institute of Photography. At the age of fourteen he bought his first 35mm camera and learned to roll and develop his own film and prints. Chris continued to learn as a teacher’s assistant teaching darkroom at night school for adults while in high school.
Building on the foundation that he learned at a young age, he evolved as a lifelong learner spending time alone through painful trial and error as well as leaning from other photographers. This developmental journey included years of on again and off again lessons from Judith Pishnery, a well-known Atlanta professional photographer and educator who provided the sometimes-painful truth along with thoughtful motivation. Chris has lived in Georgia since 1987 and has also enjoyed spending time with other instructors and students at works
