Ralph Kristopher began taking pictures at the age of 11 in 1991 when his grandfather Richard F. Myers, a photographer for the United States Navy during WWII, gave Ralph a camera and sole thoughtful nugget 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 World.
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, Ralph’s love and affinity for capturing people in their special moments and the famed results has him highly sought-after for candid photos and portraiture.

This perspective has added to his unique style and his clients' experience. It is Kristopher’s attention to detail, his understanding of composition and balance of light, backed with three decades of technical skill that set him apart from the rest. Kristopher is always willing to go the extra mile. Kristopher is humble, personable, down-to-earth gentleman of extraordinary talent and person.
