ABOUT + PORTFOLIO
Hi my name is Chris! For as long as I can remember I've had this deep passion for living life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same.
This passion came alive in a new way when I discovered photography (or more accurately, when photography discovered me!). Suddenly, I found a way to slow down, shift the focus off of myself, to savor life deeply, to learn, to grow and ultimately to heal! All while doing with with such an amazing community of creatives! And so many of those people taught me how to capture better photos and more importantly, how to thrive!
So basically, that's why I'm here today - to share what I’ve learned (and to learn from you!) in the hopes that we can collaborate in this process of pursuing how to capture better photos and make the world a better place.
Chris is a highly respected, reviewed and celebrated teacher who speaks regularly at conferences nationally and internationally at conferences like Photo Plus, WPPI, Photoville, LACP Exposure, Palm Springs Photo Festival, Adobe MAX (5x MAX master - Adobe's highest honor), Imaging USA and more. Chris has been invited to speak at Google, lead creative imaging seminars at Facebook and represented Adobe at major conferences.Chris Orwig is a best-selling author, photographer, and teacher who blends a down-to-earth approach with technical expertise.Having authored 7 books on Lightroom, Photoshop and Photography, taught at the college level for 12 years and authored over 100 online tutorials (totaling more than 5000 hours), Chris knows his stuff.But more importantly, he knows what matters most. After having survived a near-death rock climbing incident in his teens, Chris realized that life is a gift and that the camera is the perfect tool for savoring and celebrating the time that we have.Whether capturing photographs, teaching or writing books, Chris strives to inspire others to become more creative and lead more meaningful lives.
Well enough about me, I'd love to hear about you! My goal is to provide training and coaching that will help you create your best work and live your best life!
