Chris Byrne is a US-based landscape photographer based in West Linn, Oregon. He is known for his dramatic and evocative images of nature, which have been featured in magazines, books, and exhibitions around the world.

Byrne began his photography journey in 2007, when he bought his first DSLR camera. He quickly fell in love with the art of capturing the natural world, and began spending his weekends exploring the forests, mountains, and coastlines of Oregon. In 2012, Byrne decided to pursue photography full-time. He began offering photography workshops and tours, and his work began to gain recognition in the international photography community. He has since won numerous awards, including the Epson Pano Award and the International Landscape Photographer of the Year.

Byrne’s photographs are characterized by their use of light, color, and composition to create stunning and immersive images. He is particularly skilled at capturing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and his work often features dramatic skies, lush forests, and towering mountains.

In addition to his photography, Byrne is also a passionate educator. He believes that everyone has the potential to create beautiful photographs, and he enjoys sharing his knowledge and skills with others. He offers workshops and tours for photographers of all levels, and he is always available to answer questions and provide guidance.

Byrne is a true master of landscape photography. His work is both technically and artistically superb, and it has inspired and captivated people around the world. He is a role model for aspiring photographers, and he continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with this medium.

In addition to his experiences, Chris Byrne is a well-respected member of the photography community and he is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, and the Oregon Camera Club. He is also a frequent speaker at photography workshops and events.

We believe that Chris Byrne would make a great guest juror for a call for entry. He is a talented photographer with a deep understanding of the art form. He is also fair, objective, and approachable. I am confident that he would select the best entries for the show and provide valuable feedback to the entrants.
