An accomplished explorer, photographer, creative director, speaker, and author
Traveling throughout the years to pursue the farthest expanses of Earth, Burkard works to capture stories that inspire humans to consider their relationship with nature while promoting the preservation of wild places everywhere.
Layered by outdoor, travel, adventure, surf, and lifestyle subjects, Burkard is known for images that are punctuated by untamed, powerful landscapes. Through social media, Chris strives to share his vision of wild places with millions of people and inspire them to explore for themselves.
Chris has visited Iceland over 50 times for exactly this purpose throughout the years, capturing Iceland's untamed and raw nature with his unique style. Chris has explored the adventures of Iceland and challenged himself and his surroundings by surfing in Iceland's cold waves, cycling across the highlands during winter from the North to South, and his astounding A Line in the Sand nine-day bikepacking East-West traverse of Iceland in 2020. Chris Burkard is also 66°North Brand Ambassador, representing the prestigious Icelandic outdoors clothing brand.
His visionary perspective has earned him opportunities to work on global, prominent campaigns with Fortune 500 clients, speak on the TED stage, design product lines, educate, and publish a growing collection of books. Burkard and his team are based out of his production studio and gallery on Califonia's Central Coast.
Keeping Iceland active since 1926
For nearly 100 years, 66˚North has made life and activity possible where otherwise there would be none. The Icelandic weather is infamous for being extremely unpredictable, offering different combinations of rain, wind, snow, and sun every day. We’ve been challenging it for over nine decades, so we know a thing or two about versatility.
Our philosophy has always been that weather shouldn’t be an obstacle to going places. Our clothing is designed to be comfortable in everyday life but at the same time keep you prepared for the worst. 66° North is committed is to creating high-quality products for versatile usage with the mindset that they should last.
Through the longevity of design, function, construction, care, and desirability, 66˚ North expects our products to reduce the need for long-term consumption, whether bought new or second-hand.
66˚ North is a carbon-neutral business.
