Christopher Balmer

Christopher Balmer has been successful in the portrait, fashion, wedding and stock photography industries. After spending over 46 years exploring every inch of Yellowstone, the Sawtooth Mountains and many of the state and federal wildlife refuges throughout the western U.S. and being a fishing and hunting guide for many years, his true passion lies in nature and wildlife photography. Christopher has specialized in fine art prints and his limited edition prints have been sold worldwide and have been featured in many galleries throughout the country.

Christopher opened Perfect Light Camera & Supply in November 2008, a full line factory direct dealer for Nikon, Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and many other photographic equipment manufacturers. His main goal was to build a professional level camera store and more importantly a world class photography education center in the Northwest. Since he opened he has taught over 7,000 students from around the country and many more from overseas and has become a very well recognized and respected photography instructor in the photography community.

Christopher’s knowledge of photography, both in technique and equipment, is unmatched in the photography education and equipment industry. He is always ready and willing to share that knowledge with anyone who has a passion to learn. Unlike many instructors and teachers, he believes in sharing every single aspect of his photography knowledge to you and holds nothing back. During his classes and international workshops you will often hear Christopher state that he does not want his students to be as good as him, he wants them to be far better than him.   When investing in yourself, you can trust that your time and money will be well spent with Perfect Light Camera, Photo Adventure workshops and Christopher Balmer. Christopher welcomes you and looks forward to sharing wonderful experiences with you both in the classroom and in the field.
