Chris Hamilton was born and raised on the east end of Long Island, and is a lifelong resident of Greenport. His family has been living on Long Island, and working on the water for at least six generations. Chris is a graduate of The University of Rhode Island, where he studied Environmental Science and Marine Affairs. Currently, Chris works as a bayman, a photographer, and a bar manager.
Chris’ story is one of love and loss, honor and respect, soul searching and redemption. He ultimately hopes to inspire others with his photography, and bring a heightened awareness to the importance of respecting and preserving our natural resources and heritage here on the East End.
