  Chris MacArthur

Photographer | Director | Journalist

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, teenage MMA fighters or flamboyant Barbie doll salesmen, I’ll bring out their best and make them look great.
