Hi, I'm Chris! I'm a down-to-earth family man based in Santa Barbara California. I have a deep passion for helping others to awaken the artist within so they can create their best work and make a difference in the world.

In case you want a more formal bio... here's a bio someone wrote about me:

Chris is a highly respected, reviewed and celebrated teacher who speaks regularly at conferences nationally and internationally at conferences like The Portrait Masters, 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.


"Chris Orwig is an incredible photographer and an awesome educational resource to other photographers. Being in class with Chris was so enlightening and his enthusiasm for life is evident in his teaching and photographs. His portrait video series is one of my favorites!"
