IN FOCUS

Sony Ambassador and represented by National Geographic Image Collection, Chris Schmid, has dedicated his life to documenting the natural beauty of our planet. His photographs and films are an invitation to discover the world with wide eyes and vibrant enthusiasm. His aim is always the same: to approach nature right at its heart in order to raise awareness around the fragility of our earth and inspire action to preserve it. 

Specialising in wildlife and documentary photojournalism, the quality of Chris’ work is reflected in the widespread recognition he has received. His photographs have been published in magazines such as National Geographic, BBC and GEO, and he has won numerous awards for his photography and shortfilms. But these prizes have never been his motivation. His tireless efforts to document and protect the few remaining areas of wilderness are fueled by a love for the natural world and a desire to protect what's left.

If you don’t have the right level of passion, you can’t survive; you need to give everything to be in those places and put in the hours observing.
