“Perfectly Imperfect”, 2010


Chris Zec is an internationally collected, Long Island-based photographer specializing in serene scapes and stills. Interior designers and homeowners alike seek his gentle compositions which range among realistic, abstract and minimalist. Originating as personal retreat from entrepreneurship and raising eight children, Chris’ digital pastime quickly ignited a passion to preserve fleeting moments of intrinsic stillness and beauty. The hope in offering these award-winning images is to adorn our harried world, whether private or corporate, with unearthed gems of serenity and peace. As the wrapping is removed from a decade’s comprehensive portfolio, this vision is being fulfilled in homes, public venues, galleries and multiple businesses across the United States and abroad.

Chris holds a degree in Geology from the University of Stony Brook. A deep love for nature and all it represents is evident in his art. As a child and young man, he was an endlessly creative introvert; today his photography perfectly combines his love for science and quiet beauty. Whether capturing panoramic grandeur or simply reframing the mundane, the hours spent behind the lens are, for him, both renewing and fulfilling.

As Chris suffers from poor vision, he is grateful for the opportunity digital photography affords. Technology aids him not only in capturing moments but also in making corrections his eyes do not allow for in the field. Once home, he enjoys enlarging, perfecting and personalizing images as much as discovering them.

As part of his ongoing education, Chris studies the stylistic inspiration and technical direction of some of the great names in nature photography. He thanks them for their publicly shared expertise, both in technical knowledge and artistic rendering, which have been an invaluable part of the maturing of Chris’ own perspective and development as an artist.

Chris Zec Photography is comprised of the brother and sister team of Chris Zec and Sonia Wheeler. Together they research venues, choose new images for release, and prepare Chris’ works for patrons.
