About Banff Image and Chris Foote

Chris Foote has been a photographer since he set up a darkroom in his family home as a teenager.  He currently focuses on commercial sports photography.  Some of his perennial clients include Liberty Skis, Ripzone, Sportchek and The Newschoolers. 

 

Chris is originally from Alberta and has been in Banff for 25 years. Athletes love skiing and working with Chris because he gets spectacular photos of them, he can work quickly respecting their time while still taking care to compose beautiful photos.  Companies, resorts and brand love hiring Chris because he knows the Banff Lake Louise area intimately, focuses on his clients goals and has a tight relationship with athletes.  Most of all Chris loves skiing and the skiing community. If he isn't taking photos it is more likely than not that he will ski more vertical than Mount Everest to sea level in a given day at a resort.

Why Hire Chirs Foote?

Although one could say that Chris's images speak for themselves there is actually much more to his photos than meets the eye on this website and social media.  Chris has an obsession for image quality.  This is expressed by the top tier camera bodies and lenses he uses as well as the latest software for editing the photos.  This is where Chris's work stands out in the snow sport community where compact gear and light editing are the norms. 

Chris's commitment to technical quality is backed up with unique perspectives and artistic talent in composition and storytelling.  By having Chris take your photos your brand will appear polished, fun and current.
