Kristian Bogner is a World Class Photographer and Director. His mission as a visual storyteller is to capture the beauty of this world with excellence while inspiring others with his work and the workshops he teaches.
Kristian literally grew up into the world of photography and has a proud heritage. This year marks the 76th Anniversary of Bogner Photography which started with his master photographer grandfather in Germany, who was one of Leica’s top ambassadors. Kristian’s father and mother also both became Canadian master photographers. By 8 years old he was assisting with photography at weddings, at 10 he did his first commercial aerial shoot and by 16 he had already started his own successful photography business. As Kristian continued his career, he was eager to leave film and the traditional darkroom behind and begin shooting digital. He chose the Nikon D1X as his first digital camera and never looked back, pushing the limits of digital and using Nikon cameras exclusively throughout his career.
Kristian is a pro photographer, speaker and ambassador for Nikon Canada, Broncolor, Lowepro and Manfrotto. Kristian was recently awarded 2018 International Photographer of the Year as well as 2-time Commercial Photographer of the Year with the Master Photographers International Association. He is also a 3-time Commercial Photographer of the Year for Canada with the Professional Photographers of Canada Association along with numerous other awards for his work.
Kristian’s abilities take him from shooting the Olympics and extreme sports, to fashion, architecture, aircrafts, landscapes and expeditions across the globe. Recent expeditions include climbing Mt. Vinson in Antarctica with 85lbs of gear in up to -65 degree conditions, to several amazing Arctic adventures, to filming and photographing in Rwanda for a life-enhancing water project.
Kristian started in photography at such a young age, and it has been his lifelong passion. As a result of his vast experience, he is known as a technical master, with the ability to capture with excellence in any photographic situation and is continually pushing the envelope of his own art and the gear he uses to create it.
