John Poer – Triad coordinator

Chris Almerini is a nature and wildlife photographer living in Winston Salem, NC. Chris returned to photography at the dawn of the digital age of photography. With a new baby and a digital camera Chris was hooked on photography again. Chris turned his attention to more subjects than just his daughter and began a really intense study of nature and wildlife photography. During this time, he sought out a variety of instructors to aid in his skill development and
expand his photo vision. You may recognize some of these folks- David Middleton, Tony Sweet, Charles Glatzer, Kevin Adams, Bill Lea, Mark Buckler, Les Saucier, Adam Jones, Donna Eaton, Bryan Peterson, just to name a few…Picking up specific insights from each of these photographers and adding them to his bag. He continues to read, listen to podcasts on photography and seek new ideas about photography to challenge and grow his photos. For several years Chris lead the Triad Region of CNPA growing its membership from 15-20 members to over 65. Chris has made several presentations to a variety of camera clubs and
photo groups throughout NC, SC, VA. Chris’ photos have appeared in several magazines, juried art shows and a couple of solo art shows. Chris participates in both virtual and in-person critique groups to share his work with a wider audience and learn from others. He has served a photo judge for numerous contests and at one point was active in critiquing hundreds of images a year from other photographers seeking improvement in their work. He has a passion for the big landscape (especially in bad weather) and the unique animal behavior that really reveals something special about an animal. He was a successful high school sports photographer and routinely volunteers his time and skills with Athena’s Run for GYN Cancer supporting woman cancer survivors in Winston Salem.
