About Christopher Shaw

Photo by Nima Salimi

I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area with a portfolio that ranges from portrait and headshots to lifestyle events and cityscape photography. What started as a hobby for creative outlet, has grown into a personal brand. 

Photography allows me to show the beauty in the moment of the world that surrounds me. I don't just take pictures, I capture moments…I capture awesome.

When I'm not looking though my camera lens or editing photos, I'm enjoying every fun moment with my wife and baby boy, planning our next adventure.



If you have any questions or interested in scheduling a photo shoot, purchasing prints, or licensing any of my photographs, please contact me via email: chris@shawesomephotos.com
