About Us

Aaron Chang is an American-born artist, known for his exceptional ocean photography and stunning visual art. An internationally acclaimed artist, Chang has collectors all over the world and his work has been published in hundreds of books and magazines. Respected as a creative force who helped visually define the sport of surfing, Aaron spent 25 years as a senior photographer at Surfing magazine, traveling to the far reaches of the globe. During this time, Chang set new standards for modern ocean photography. Today, as a fine art photographer, Aaron’s company has owned and operated two thriving galleries in the San Diego area for the past 9 years. Aaron continues to travel the world, having melded his passion for the ocean and the visual arts into a successful lifelong career. Aside from photography, Aaron is delving into multi-media sculpture. The most exciting piece in the works is a 20-foot surfboard sculpture, comprised of 65algae-based surfboards. The purpose of the sculpture is for the public to experience what it’s like to ride a big wave, bringing awareness of the beauty and power of our oceans. Aaron’s new direction melds the abstract and reality genres in the ocean realm, resulting in the viewer connecting with nature in meaningful way. Aaron continues to create pieces for commercial development companies, including 2 mixed media sculptures commissioned in 2017 by the health care industry. One piece spans 10’ wide x 15’ high. It is a lenticular image of a wave that’s breaking as the viewer moves alongside the piece. With the trend toward biophilic design (bringing the connection with nature into the design of where we live and work) Aaron’s art is aligned with the concepts that focus on the energy and power of the ocean. Aaron’s passion is to share his love and connection with the ocean. Whether through photography or sculpture, Aaron has a base of passionate fans that long to experience the beauty of the ocean through his eyes. You can see more of Aaron's work at
