Chris Bone

Chris Bone became a DP because the Internet killed newspapers. Add in The Great Recession, and the former crime and courts newspaper reporter found himself taking photos for his own stories because the paper could no longer afford photographers. This reawakened a passion for photography he had explored in darkrooms as a teenager, and in 2009, he moved back to Atlanta from California to work as a shooter on a documentary about the rock band Drivin n Cryin. He cut his teeth on more modern cameras, and the movie premiered at the 2013 Atlanta Film Festival, opening the door to freelance production work. Fast-forward again, and Chris now shoots a wide variety of commercial, documentary and narrative work, both video and photography. Most recently, his short film The Last Man You Meet received honorable mention at the 2018 Slamdance Film Festival and also appeared in numerous other festivals.

Outside of work, Chris enjoys gardening, jogging, stand-up comedy and regularly orders desserts at restaurants. The only other thing worth noting here is that the love of his life (to date) is a beagle named Gracie.
