About Chris Polack

Chris Polack is now one of the world’s most celebrated BMX photographers. The founder of seminal BMX magazine Rebelyell, Polack has been named one of the world’s top ten BMX photographers.

Polack’s hunger for life has taken him right around the world, and his grimy, stylized BMX photography has gained him commissions from clients like Nike, Red Bull, Carhartt and Vans. While this has brought its own perks, with all expenses paid 5-star hotel stays and chauffeurs, Polack fully embraces the flip side of that coin.  Though the law doesn’t always agree with Polack’s ideas about how to get the best shot, he’s not willing to compromise

His experience in BMX photography has honed fast reflexes and an intimate feel for action. Whether he’s shooting stocky guys on tiny bikes, fashion models, or any of the colourful characters around his studio, Polack brings a fresh eye to the world, capturing movement and pinning a small piece of life to the page.
