Our Lives in Stasis


My name is Chris Hake and I’m a twenty some husband and father of two.  I recently discovered a liking to photography, so much so that I created a blog dedicated to the amateur and professional.  My aim with Static Instants is to create an environment for photographers, amateur, professional and any where in between, to present their work to the world while generating a secondary portfolio.  My hopes are to add numerous pages with brilliant work over time and to also advance the importance of photography.  Enjoy your visit to Static Instants.

  1. Wowsers…I took a look at YOUR photographs and felt so complimented that you should notice something about mine. Thank you so much. This summer I am away from my easel and so I have been holding my camera, enjoying what moments I notice, after snapping. ;0)
