One Shoot Sunday - Featuring Chris Galford


One Shoot Sunday 

wants to welcome Chris Galford. 
I (Leslie Moon) met Chris in the world of poetry and was inspired by the beauty and depth of his writing. 
At the time, I didn't know we also shared the love for photography.

Chris, in my estimation, is on his way to a career in media. He fell in love with photography as a Freshman in college. Before then. he loved photography and art, but he never felt like he could achieve what others had. “I gave in more frequently to the inherent wanderlusts I have always had and took to exploring.” 




Chris has had plenty of experience since his Freshman year. He has worked for three different news/ media organizations and was the photo editor of his school paper as Junior.  Needless to say he will not be putting his camera down any time soon.



Chris’ photography is inspired by the “simple yet majestic beauty of nature.”  He is taken aback by that trek in the wilderness without a destination; he is accompanied  with a camera full of great memories and pictures. “To capture a moment in existence, to draw the world around you into a shot for everyone to see as you saw it – that is a feeling like none other.”

Chris shoots with a Nikon D60. "I  adore Nikons”. He uses the standard Nikkor 18-55mm lens, the Nikkor 70-300mm lens for distance and the Sigma 10-20mm wide angle for expansive shots and scenery.



“Though writing is and always has been the very heart of my being, I hope that in whatever I do, and wherever I go, I can always use my photography with it, and keep photography as an important expansive part of my life.”
