Lensbaby Makers: Chris Flash

Lensbaby Makers is a series that looks into the world of influential Lensbaby shooters. Press play to see these photographers in action as they work through their creative process.
Meet Chris Flash


I see myself more as an artist than as a photographer, and this creative approach affects how I choose to use my Lensbaby lenses. When used in the right way, they allow me to create something magical.

Lensbaby slows me down in a good way. Having to manual focus makes me think more critically about every shot. I'm not just shooting like crazy and hoping to get the shot. Creativity is the force that breaks down the process, leading to better results.

I am a professional photographer and makeup artist. I use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the highest quality work. I want to share my vision of the world with my audience. I'm passionate about capturing special moments and emphasizing the pure beauty of nature.

Im an experienced photographer interested in taking perfect shots of the various things and people that surround me from marine landscapes to wild nature. I have a special passion for removing the boundaries imposed by various genres of photography by combining different elements into a single masterpiece that's designed to captivate and fascinate my audience.
