Born and raised in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco, Chris started surfing in 1960 at age 10, and began shooting photographs in 1965. It's been a non-stop adventure ever since.
"To me, all photographs of surfing and nature are moments in time, never again to be exactly repeated, each image becoming a small piece of history. The best photos are a unique harmony of reflexes, composition, lighting and sometimes just pure luck, and for just a fraction of a second, everything's perfect. A seasoned photographer and his camera's mission, is to bottle and preserve these rare glances for our viewing pleasure."
