Name: Chris Allen
Age: 19
Current Residence: Camarillo, CA
Years Shooting: 3
Equipment: Nikon D200, 10.5 Fisheye, SPL Waterhousing
Favorite Place to Shoot: Ventura, but I love to travel anywhere that has surf
Inspirations: I get my inspiration from seeing my friends stoked on my work. Capturing a moment that will never happen again and then sharing it with people, I think is what keeps me going. As far who I look up to, if I had to pick one, Tim Jones, his water shots always amaze me.


This happens about once every year when fires and hard offshores come together, really makes for quite a sight.

Christmas Day, I don’t think you can ask for anything better as a gift?

One of my last days on the North Shore, a late drop by Damien King on this nug.

I have a whole collection of sunsets that I see everyday during the summer at work. Here is one of the better ones.

This is Randy Phenning helping test my waterhousing on the 3rd day that I had it.

A rare sight at County Line, more of an illusion than anything.

The King at his home grounds.

I don’t know why, but I really like this shot a lot. I mean can’t you just picture yourself in this?

My good surfing friend Cory Crocker doing his usual huge backside snaps. One of my favorite guys to shoot here in the 805.
