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.  Ski and Snowboard companies love hiring Chris because he knows the area, 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.


Photographing Athletes Chis has a tight relationship with lots of top ski and snowboard athletes.  He can hire them and photograph them to feature products.
