Chris Ogden is a professional photographic artist, educator, expedition leader, and competition judge who specializes in fine art and assignment photography. He works and teaches globally, particularly in the Ant/Arctic and other deserts around the world.

His work is frequently shown at museums, galleries, and other arts venues in traditional shows and via multimedia installations, including most recently a five-month-long solo museum show of his rock quarry project starting in May. His prints are enthusiastically owned by private and corporate collections alike.

Outside of making his own art, Chris is a frequent juror of print competitions, print critiquer, and lecturer helping his students and workshop attendees to Take Their Best Shots and make them better.

As well, Chris believes that the Arts (in all their various forms) can play a vital "multiplier" role to our cultural and economic vibrancy. Such “creative placemaking,” especially through public art, can truly be a rising tide that lifts all boats. He currently serves on three arts and culture boards in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area where he resides, including as long standing Chair of Durham's Public Art Committee which brought the FENCE to Durham.
