Talbot Photography is owned by Chris Talbot, a 38-year local of North Lake Tahoe. “I create beautiful fine art landscapes of Lake Tahoe and the world.” The travel/resort/real estate industry has taken Chris to 36 countries, including China, Russia, India, Spain, Croatia, Australia, Costa Rica, Panama, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Macau, Japan and Singapore. “I have seen a lot of great views and been in a lot of cool places.” Talbot uses drones to capture HDV and stills from “an incredible perspective.” Chris also is Tahoe’s choice for weddings and portraits. “When I passed 1,000 weddings last year I thought I would stop, but they are way too much fun.”

“My life is dedicated to my 6-year-old daughter, Emma Ly, who makes everything seem new again.”
