Part of Chris Burkard’s choice in becoming a photographer had to do with his insatiable urge to create. To achieve in his art. The other was that pull to the wild places he truly loves to visit: “Wilderness in its purest, most visible form,” he says. But now, he’s using that sharp eye and those ruggedly-detailed photo skills to impact and (hopefully) improve the world. Creative work can galvanize social change and inspire us to be our best. Burkard’s is certainly doing that right now. He shares his approach to creativity, innovation, and how to make an impact through your creative work as part of the 2020 EVOLVE Summit, where we celebrate the accomplishments of luminaries in the worlds of surf and outdoors.
