About Me

Chris Richman is an award-winning photojournalist and fine art photographer. She holds the prestigious Master of Photography, Master Artist and Craftsman degrees from the Professional Photographers of America. She is a Certified Professional Photographer and holds the PPNC Fellowship Degree. She has successfully completed the PPA Judges Workshop.

Her photographs have won awards from the NC Press Association, Carolina Nature Photography Association, Cary Photographic Artists, the Professional Imaging Group of Eastern North Carolina, the Professional Photographers of North Carolina (PPNC) and the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), including 2016 through 2020 PPA Photographer of the Year and the PPNC 2018 & 2019 PPNC Photographer of the Year.

Her twenty years as a senior research scientist, her decades of teaching and leadership in the informal science education arena and her years of editorial sports and event photography give her an eye for precision, composition and story-telling.

Known for both her black and white florals and colorful composites, Chris loves to capture and create images that introduce the viewer to things that they might not notice or be able to see in everyday life. Creativity and humor are major elements in many of her composite works.

In addition to coaching photographers through personal photography projects, Chris is a mentor, a frequent speaker, offers photo critiques and juries competitions and exhibits for photography associations at both the professional and amateur levels.

She is a member of The Image Salon, The Professional Imaging Group of Eastern NC, the Professional Photographers of NC, the Professional Photographers of America and the American Society of Photographers.
