Commercial pilot and aerial photographer Chris Boyer flies throughout the Northern Rockies and beyond, providing conventional and 3D aerial mapping, documentary photography, and infrared and multispectral imaging, while also photographing the landscape from an artist’s perspective. Chris will discuss the random career path that led from east coast suburbs to western ranch work, trout stream restoration, and finally to aerial photography. He will cover the wide range of his current aerial projects and explain some of the technical and artistic aspects of making imagery while at the controls of a plane.

Chris Boyer BioPresenter Bio: Christopher Boyer earned his pilot’s license during a graduate program in Fluvial Geomorphology. After 10 years in landscape restoration, he sold his company to start Kestrel Aerial Services, Inc. In addition to his technical flight services, his award-winning photography has appeared in regional and national magazines, museums, galleries and private collections. Chris lives with his wife, Jennifer, and his young son, B, on Farm 51 in Bozeman, Montana, where they raise and sell Boer and Nubian goats.


MSU Wonderlust is a high-quality community resource for lifelong learning for the Bozeman area.  Here is university-quality instruction by experts in a huge number of subjects, some multi-week courses, some one-off events.  These offerings come free of homework, exams, or papers: The MSU Wonderlust experience is just a chance to learn new things or review things we’d already studied.  It's also an opportunity to meet people with a wide variety of interests.

The Winter/Spring offerings begin with a reception at the Pilgrim Congregational Church from 4 to 6pm.  It's a chance to meet with the course instructors and side-trip presenters; find out more about their plans.
