about Chase


Photographer, Director, and Filmmaker.

Born and raised in Arizona, Chase grew up wandering the Sonoran desert. With an itching desire to see new sights and experience new sounds, he was always exploring, always on the go. After having developed a nomadic mindset along with an affinity for art, Chase picked up a camera and soon found his passion. He eventually landed in San Diego, California where he currently studies at San Diego State University.

From surf photography to commercial work, Chase strives to maintain a sharp artistic edge by working in a variety of industries. Through his broad spectrum of work, he has developed a diverse portfolio as well as a versatile skillset that allows him to continuously grow as a creative. With a background marketing and entrepreneurship, Chase also consults with companies on branding strategies. Although he chooses not to work solely in one niche, he specializes in Surf, Music, Travel, Lifestyle, and Product photography.

Chase’s most recent work has taken him up in a hot air balloon with Red Bull, across the Pacific ocean to Hawaii, and to the peaks of the Rocky Mountains filming a snowboarding extravaganza.
