Kris Krüg is a sought after fashion, music, and portraits photographer, as well as an influential technologist and author based on Galiano Island in Vancouver, BC, Canada. When Kris isnt jet setting around the world shooting events such as SXSW, DENT, and the Olympics or photographing dot-com executives, models and rock stars as a fashion and editorial photographer, you can catch him teaching and speaking at media and technology conferences about innovative new media and the Internet. Ideally, however, if it were for this community oriented and free-spirited thinker, Krüg would be doing and being "whatever you say I am... from his island home: There's a reason why people end up in Vancouver. There's a reason why some of the most successful people I know go to the Silicon Valley--but the first minute they can, they move back to Canada. The promise of technology is that you can do anything from anywhere, but I stay in British Columbia because I love this place."
