About - Christopher Shane

Photographer. Filmmaker. Outdoor Athlete.

When I was eight years old, my parents took me on a summer road trip around the United States and through the National Parks. That burning sense of wonder and curiosity I felt on the open road for the first time, passing through the mountains, rivers, and forests of America's great parks, never left me. A summer spent in those sacred places remains the foundation of inspiration for my work. I gravitate towards the joy and human interaction with the natural world, reflected in my photography, whether it's commercial work or for an expedition.

Born and raised in Maine, I'm committed to capturing the limitless potential of outdoor recreation and the incredible culture that lives and plays here in the Northeast. With classic rock & ice climbs, endless trails like the famous Appalachian Trail, the world's "worst weather," on Mount Washington, and an intricate system of pristine rivers and waterways, the outdoor industry can and should thrive here. 

I'm also passionate about global documentary work and social justice initiatives. I've worked on projects like this in Kenya, Oman, Maine, and the city of Boston focused on solving problems like global education, environmental conservation, veterans affairs, and homelessness.
