November Cover Artist: Chris D'Ardenne
Wednesday Nov. 1st, 2023
As a physician and photographer, art and science have long been intertwined in Chris D’Ardenne’s life. This unique combination of careers is synergistic, and makes him both a better doctor and a better artist. Ever since being handed his first SLR camera on a family trip to London, his passion for photography has continued to flourish. As a self-trained photographer, his main interests are landscape, travel and opportunistic wildlife photography. The majority of his photos are from mountain regions (both domestic and abroad), the desert southwest, and both U.S. coasts.
His career in medicine affords him the opportunity to pursue photography with the passion that it deserves. Accordingly, in the last few years he was featured in renowned galleries in Denver, and has been published by National Geographic Calendar, Backpacker magazine, and Digital Photographer magazine, among others. His work was selected as a semi-finalist in multiple contests, including the prestigious American Landscape Photographer of the Year, the Windland Rice Photography awards, and the Siena International Photo Awards.
Chris’ goal is to capture nature as he sees it. His patience and vision combines with a little bit of luck — rewarding us with harmonious colors, grand landscapes, colorful sunsets, and intimate scenes. He edits images simply — and if he spends longer than five minutes on a particular image, it wasn’t meant to be (and goes in the trash)! All images are a single capture, unless otherwise specified.
Chris has always called mountains home; in 2017, he and his family moved from the Colorado Rockies to Bozeman in order to enjoy the areas they enjoy recreating in. Here, he practices pediatric hospital medicine and continues to explore the vast mountains of his new home state.
All of Chris’ photographs are available for purchase in a variety of sizes and formats, including traditionally framed, gallery mounted, acrylic, and aluminum prints. Furthermore, he collaborates on both residential and corporate art projects both in the Bozeman area and throughout the Rocky Mountain region.
