Chris Burkard's extreme sport photography focuses less on risk and more on nature's raw and untouched beauty. Instead of capturing the thrill and danger of extreme sports, the artist captures gorgeous landscapes and topographic scenes that are seen through the eyes of athletes. They include white water rafters, surfers and even hang-gliders.

The result is breathtaking and suggests that many participate in extreme sports in order to experience nature's beauty rather than solely for an adrenaline rush or dangerous thrill.

Chris Burkard is based in California and is an extreme sport photography enthusiast who is surprisingly self-taught. His compositions capture secluded spots all across the globe and include scenes that will appeal to both sport and art fans with a love of the outdoors.
