Chris Bray & Jess Taunton


Dirty Dog Team Member Chris Bray & Jess Taunton


Chris Bray & Jess Taunton are the ultimate adventure duo: Chris grew up sailing around the world, has led world-first expeditions hauling carts across unexplored arctic islands, is chairman of the Australia & New Zealand chapter of the internationally prestigious Explorers Club, and sits on the Board of Trustees for The Australian Geographic Society. Together with his partner Jess – an outdoor wilderness guide – they currently sail a small wooden yacht ‘Teleport’ around the globe. The first junk-rigged yacht ever to sail through the infamous Northwest Passage in the arctic, above Canada. See

Both professional photographers, Chris is Canon’s and Lowepro’s ambassador for Australia, and when not off adventuring, sailing, cycle touring, hiking or kayaking, Chris and Jess run their own photography company –, hosting photography courses all around Australia and photo safaris to Kenya, Galapagos, Patagonia, Tasmania and more! It’s a hard life – but someone’s gotta do it!
