About Me

Christopher Scott MAltese

Nothing gets me more excited than the prospect of going somewhere I have never been. From a young age I have been fascinated by both early explorers and the raw beauty of our planet and it's biodiversity. Awed and inspired by the myriad of amazing nature documentaries out there, it is this sense of wonder and beauty that I try to capture with my images. Whether shooting adventure bikes in new locations for an article or stunning landscapes for my fine art business, being outdoors and experiencing new places is what drives me. Planet Earth is truly the most amazing office.

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.



Inspiration

Growing up I distinctly remember Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid and Born Free being two of my favorite movies. I must have watched them each dozens of times. They certainly shaped my idea of an "interesting life" and were probably the inspiration for me leaving a 9-5 after graduating college and working as a tour guide before finding myself working with big cats in film & television and eventually the circus. 

Photography became a hobby early on in my life, but eventually I started working with a photographer who encouraged me to pursue it as a career. It's been both a challenging and rewarding path ever since and it's offered me a truly unique and refreshing lifestyle that has allowed me to see some amazing places and live some truly unique experiences. 

Techniques

One thing I love to do is play with different angles and perspectives.

When I look at a scene or capture an activity I look at what would be the normal go-to shots, the ones everyone takes, and then I modify from there. I really like to move around to see what other angles tell or highlight an aspect of the story.

Whether its laying in the middle of the road as two riders pass on either side or harnessing up to capture some climbers I enjoy doing whatever I can to get a shot that captures the essence of the moment and freeze it in time.

career highlights

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with the following brands and publications:
