We are bringing you a special written Nerds ‘R Us to feature the awesome Chris Robertson!
NC: Hello there Chris! Thank you so much for agreeing to do this. Please feel free to have fun with your answers, we are very casual (especially with the last round of questions!). Okay, here we go!
NC: How did you get into photography?
CR: Growing up my dad never went anywhere without his camera and I was always stealing it trying to take photos of our dogs or my brother, when he wasn’t looking. Later on, in high school, they offered photography as an elective and I learned the ins and outs of film photography. That was where I first really fell in love with it.
NC: What do you like about it so much?
CR: I love the idea of just walking around getting lost with my camera. I always find new places and things I didn’t know about before and being in NYC there is a never ending list of things to see.
