Chris Straley


Chris Straley first picked up a camera as a way to capture his group of friends doing what they love—surfing, skateboarding, and living the southern California dream.

Early in his career, he was a staff photographer at the world’s leading surf publication, TransWorld SURF, where he expanded his photographic vision, adding studio, portraiture, and lifestyle photography to his already strong action cache.

After TransWorld SURF, Straley focused on commercial projects working with companies including nike, adidas, chase bank and many others. Chris's unique photographic vision paired with his affable and easy going personality have made him a sought after lifestyle photographer.
