Chris first picked up a camera to document life and work in isolated areas of Canada's North. Places where immense, stark landscapes were highlighted by changing 24 hour light. Attempting to understand his place amidst the imposing natural forces soon drove his motivation to photograph. He became focused on the interactions between himself, others, animals, plants, climate, and land. Chris remains inspired by the organic forces in photography as he works on providing imagery for stock, wedding, and commercial clients. He currently lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in one of the sunniest places in the country.
Foliolink offers professional quality sites with contemporary styles and great customer support! Website templates allow for significant customization while remaining user friendly. My website was up fast and I have complete control to change features anytime. Having this website has been invaluable to my business.
The one thing that I have try to do as a commercial adverting photographer, is to present and promote myself first and foremost as an artist. I want the art director hiring me to get a sense that I am more interested in the process of creating a remarkable image than collecting a paycheck. I have little interest in the image associated with being a photographer, my passion lies in the image that can put in a frame and hung on the wall.
When it come to building web sites, I have gone through the whole spectrum of hiring web designers, designing and building my own, to what I now believe is the future for creative artist like me; the drag and drop. Once a year I would lock myself in my office for three weeks and labor over building a site. With FolioLink, I can create a custom looking site in a matter of hours. The number of design templates and creative options are unprecedented. Now the hardest part about building a web site come down to choosing my images.

Her work has been included in New American Paintings. Regina creates inspiring paintings and collages that use the patterns and colors of landscape, focusing on places where there is tension between people and their environment. Her art sensuously captures the enduring beauty of the land, expressing tentative hopefulness along with her concerns about global climate change.
I love your website service for artists. I recently completed the city of Austin program Artist Inc and recommended you to many of the artists there who were struggling to use Square Space or paying professionals to design their sites. One of my fellow artist-friends joined up with you. You guys are the best for visual artists!
Sebastian Rich has been a photographer /cameraman in hard news, documentary and current affairs all his working life. He joined Independent Television News (UK) in 1980 and developed a gift for being in the right place at the right time on some of the world's biggest breaking news stories; he gained a reputation not just as an uncompromising cameraman in the theatre of war but also as an insightful and highly talented photographer. Jon Snow the highly regarded British television journalist, describes Sebastian in the forward of his first book 'People I Have Shot' as ("Probably the finest news cameraman and photographer of his time. His camera work is amongst the most sensitive I have ever witnessed" Jon Snow, Channel 4 News)
My work takes me to the most hostile conflict areas of the world. I don't have time to worry about the technical details of my website. FolioLink has been quite extraordinary in their unparalleled back up, technical and emotional! I say emotional as I am a complete Luddite when it comes to the mysterious inner workings of computers nor do I care. FolioLink has taken all technical issues away from me and has let me do what I do, take photographs. The new Miami design is just the most simple and beautiful design. I absolutely adore it. This is the first endorsement that I have given in over forty years of being a photographer. Thank you so much FolioLink.

I am concerned about how my work participates in the cultures I am a part of and what meaning and use it has relative to these cultures. Because of the innate lack of boundaries in art and the art-making process, I believe that art can play an active role outside of the gallery as a direct participant in culture. I see art as not only passively waiting to be perceived, but also interacting, surprising, and appearing in the public domain outside of the structures designed to contain it. My work, and the research I do around it, is constantly trying to make these connections between power and the struggles for it; between definition and the lack thereof; between the boundaries of ideals and anarchy; between chaos and order. Therefore, I find myself working as much outside of structures as within them; outside a particular medium, as within it; manifesting as installation work, but also as video, graphs and group activities. When I am asked what kind of art I make, I answer that my work is conceptually driven, manifesting in whatever medium most effectively gets the idea across to the audience experiencing the work.

I have found Foliolink to have impeccable service. When I call they call me back. When I need assistance they provide it via the telephone in direct conversation, or in immediate responses to email inquiries I have made. I was looking at other sites which were a bit cheaper, but found that I could not get a returned phone call after numerous tries. I have used Foliolink for almost 7 years now and am extremely satisfied with the customer service, design and functionality of the various site designs I have used. They are the best value that I have been able to find. Thanks much Foliolink crew!

I have now used Foliolink for a number of years and have found the quality and variety of templates a pleasure to use. Being based half way around the world from the base of Foliolink has never been a problem and the customer service has been very helpful when I have needed assistance, with all queries answered promptly.
As a photographer, my interest is in implication rather declaration. I am drawn to images that do not present a single-point narrative. The most exciting moments are those when I see something whose meaning and narrative are unresolved, an image that can disquiet and please with its beauty; an image that can conceal as well as reveal. I try to ask questions in a voice that does not shout, and the relationship between myself and an image is much like the conversation of two people who do not know each other well engaging late at night in a kind of sotto voce exchange in which the participants are required to lean toward one another, quiet down, and listen carefully.
Upon deciding to take the plunge and promote my photographic work through a website, I embarked on a rather long research project. I knew that I wanted to work with a team devoted to partnership, innovation, design excellence and superior technical assistance. Happily, I found that and more with FolioLink. I have developed strong relationships with the incredible people at FolioLink and they have supported me, and my work in every way possible. I could not be more grateful for that dedication and for the creativity they bring to the artists and photographers, both fine art and commercial, who are FolioLink website users. FolioLink is never static; they are constantly providing new formats for presentation so that your website can change almost effortlessly whenever you choose. I would also like artists to know that FolioLink's technical crew is available for free technical support and at very reasonable prices should you decide to use their design consultation and assisted re-design services. They offer great advice on image uploading and gallery/portfolio arrangements and most helpfully, how to link your site to other places in the most effective way, so that your work can be reinforced to viewers. To have that element within your FolioLink site raises awareness, but also sends a positive message about your activity and the potential you have for attracting audiences. For example, I was recently chosen by a group of curators to be included in a major exhibition in central London. It was required of exhibitors to establish a Twitter site for additional exposure and publicity. I had never previously engaged in social media. What I have found through this vehicle is that many, many more people are going to my FolioLink website after seeing an image on Twitter that they are drawn to. Without the sophistication of my FolioLink site, I do not think people would spend as much time reviewing those galleries as they now do. FolioLink is willing to spend time with each artist to create those vital links and to assist artists in promotional activities.
I imagine the first basket as hands cupped together, a strong and universal human gesture. I can't know what my work will be about for other people, but I hope it will provoke something, be a starting place for an emotion or a thought. And, missionary that I am, I hope it will convert them to being artists, always looking for what is beautiful and interesting, perhaps where least expected. I want my baskets to invite people to look and touch. I am happiest when someone can't resist picking one up and holding it in their hands.
This works! After years of procrastination, I was able to make a website in an afternoon, and without tears. I love changing colors and formats with a couple of taps. So much fun. And real people answer the phone. Amazing.
