Craig Watson // Outdoor Advertising + Editorial Photographer // Michigan
I have come to realize that I have the coolest job ever. How often does a person get the opportunity to do the things they love to do, and make a career out of it? I love being outdoors in nature - hunting, fishing, camping, hiking. You name it, if I am outside, I am happy- even chopping firewood. I have worked throughout the world of fast-paced newspaper photojournalism, documenting some of the greatest and worst moments in people's lives. After leaving the Sun-Times News Group in Chicago, I made the moved back to my home state of Michigan to be close to my family. Four years ago, I was blessed to get the opportunity to work in the outdoor industry, and haven't looked back since. Capturing moments, creating compelling portraits, and telling a story through a photo is what fuels me, what drives me, and what keeps me moving forward. My site features a lot of personal work, outdoor work, and work that keeps me motivated, driven and passionate about storytelling. Please check back as this website will only continue to grow. If you'd like to follow along with me on my travels, check me out on Instagram.
