Chris Kogut
A Leap of Faith



Chris KogutI am a photographer residing in Pittsford, NY; photography and travel are my passions. Both have taken me to far-off destinations.

I have also shot portraits and regattas, and have had work published in numerous sailing magazines, including: The Sun and the PPA journal.

I received the PPA MASTER PHOTOGRAPHER degree in 2011 and have been awarded Photographer of the Year status from PPA for my images for six years. I have also won numerous International awards for my work.

Guided Trips to Burma

I occasionally guide trips to help people discover the beauty and culture of Burma/Myanmar. Contact me if your are interested.

Burma Book

I have published a book that tells the story of Burma as it is today—in pictures with simple text, INSIDE BURMA: photographs of an enduring people, which is available here. The proceeds are donated to The Parami Foundation, which supports several impoverished schools in Burma.

Inside Burma

The Burma Portfolio has been hung in the Munson Williams Proctor Art Institute in Utica, NY. And the image 'Walking Meditation' has been accepted into their permanent collection.

This entire exhibit of 45 framed images is available at no charge, on loan, to not-for-profit organizations seeking to raise funds for the Burmese refugees in their communities.
