Christopher Gatelock is a professional, award winning, and published Fine Art Photographer who has been involved with photography for over 20 years. He is an active member in the Professional Photographers of America and the Professional Photographers Association of New Mexico organizations. He received his education in Fine Art Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Christopher's artistic photographic style naturally leans toward surrealism in nearly every image he creates, whether it is within the composition of the image, the prolific use of bright, saturated color, or the subject matter. He naturally repels from and has little interest in the normal, the common, and the ordinary. The subject matter of his work has no boundaries, but predominantly lies in the areas of landscape, architecture, and portraiture. Christopher has little interest in producing accurate renditions of the subjects he photographs. His art reflects the imagery of his own fantasy world where he creates his own brand of beauty, peace, and solace. Christopher is not what one would consider a "straight" photographer, as traditional types of photographers are referred to in the industry, and in fact he is far from that. His images undergo a rather elaborate artistic transformation in postproduction to reflect his own unique taste and style in which he has very little concern with the reality of the original image. He is a photographic artist and uses his art to express his emotions and feelings the way he believes things should be and not what they often times really are. Christopher believes that he is and has always been in the act of "becoming" in his craft, knowing that there really should never be a point of arrival when it involves one's creativity. He hopes that you identify with and enjoy his imagery.
