Ralph Kristopher began shooting in 1992 when his grandfather Richard F. Myers, a photographer for the United States Navy during WWII, gave him a camera and one piece of advice: “Don’t just take a picture.” Kristopher was first published at the age of 21 in Powder Magazine and has been featured in international exhibits, magazines, commercial publications, and art galleries across the United States. Kristopher’s personal experience in the mountains and backcountry have afforded him the opportunity to photograph skilled athletes on all kinds of amazing adventures around the globe. In addition, RK's love and affinity for capturing people in their special moments has him highly sought-after for candids and portraiture. Regarding Kristopher’s dedication to photography as a social art, he says: "Photography is a fun and meaningful act of participation in a special moment that persists through time."  This perspective has added to his unique style and his clients' experience.  It is RK's attention to detail, his understanding of composition and balance of light, backed with over two decades of technical skill that set him apart from others. Always willing to go the extra mile, Kristopher is a humble, personable, down to earth gentleman.  Currently Kristopher is accepting assignments for publications, hire for commercial adventure campaigns, or for your next wedding, elopement, event, or family gathering. Watch for his private art projects and special events titled: RK Presents, as they bring more than is expected.
