Chris Messer,
Photographer of Della Falls
on Vancouver Island

Chris Messer, photographer for Amazing British ColumbiaChris Messer, the photographer of the photo of Della Falls in Amazing British Columbia, lives in Victoria, the capital of BC. He wrote a bit about himself and his photo in the book:
My name is Chris Messer. I work full time in construction but spend as much time as possible practicing my love of photography. I've spent most of my life surrounded by the wild forests of BC. I quickly became fascinated with the world of outdoor wildlife photography.

Right now, I live in Victoria, working and exploring the many beautiful parks that surround the area.

My photo in the book was taken while flying above Della Falls, a relatively short trip from Port Alberni. It took a bit a bit of manoeuvring to get the camera outside of the small window (and a few skipped heartbeats at the thought of dropping it!) but I was happy coming away with the shot.

You can see other Chris Messer photos on flickr.com. (Opens in a new window)
