  Chris MacArthur

Photographer | Writer | Director 

As a young sk8rboi growing up in Vancouver, my hobbies included writing graffiti, listening to emo music and smoking weed in the parking lot of 7-Eleven while eating candy and reading Maxim magazine.

After high school, I worked as an English teacher in Kyoto then spent five years as an oil rig worker in Northern Alberta. When I finally decided to choose a “real” career, I picked photography. I knew I’d probably have to eat Kraft Dinner for the rest of my life, but I was confident I’d never get bored and could always find a way to be successful.

Today, my greatest passion is crafting people-focused stories and content. I have a deep and genuine interest in people and a love for exploring what makes them who they are. Whether it’s picnicking goths or flamboyant Barbie doll salesmen, I want to make them look great and bring their stories to life.
