Well Travelled: Berlin, Germany

Herschel Supply Well Travelled

To truly grow as a person you must leave the comforts of your home and explore. Join Stefen Ursulan as he travels with three friends to Berlin to find what they are looking for… Take a moment to view Stefans words and images below…

I chose to go on this trip with three of my travelling cohorts, of whom share mutual artistic interest. We set off hoping to broaden our cultural perspective, bring life to European history and explore the photographic potential that lies within European textures and scape.

HSC_CHRISBURK

1. Who are you?

I am Chris Burkard.. central California native, and bodysurf enthusiast..and love of the outdoors..

2. What do you do?

I am a senior staff photographer for surfer magazine… I shoot a lot of outdoor lifestyle, adventure, and tomfoolery for outdoor brands.. but I’m most known for my editorial style and landscape perspective.

3. Where do you live?

The small beach town of Pismo Beach.. its’ more known for clam chowder and sand dunes than perfect waves.

4. When are you most productive?

In the cold climates of the North Atlantic.. I have never been content with sipping down pina coladas in the south pacific.. and in some way I get a sick sense of accomplishment freezing my but off chasing elusive waves in freezing and remote places.

5. Why photography?

For me, photography just became the most perfect medium for expression, it honestly made the most sense.. I did a lot of art through high school , drawing, clay, paint.. but I hated being tied to a classroom or stuck with and easel on a cliff.. I wanted to be apart of the action.. so photography made the most sense.. it was like a perfect extension of my body.. I could take it in the surf, the mountains, and pretty much anywhere in between.

6. How did you get your start?

My first passion was for shooting landscapes.. that was all I cared about.. so when I first started I went to the desert southwest and just explored.. I eventually combined my passion for being in the water and bought a waterhousings and started shooting friends surfing.. I was sending images to Transworld Surf, and I had a photo editor that gave me some great feedback.. Eventually I was offered an internship.. and the rest is history.. I learned a lot from that experience.. it really made me think hard about how to actually contribute to magazines.. so I started tailoring my work towards editorial..and it made me think in terms of telling the story.
