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. During this time, Chang set new standards for modern ocean photography.
Today, as a fine art photographer, Aaron owns two thriving galleries in San Diego and continues to travel the world, having melded his passion for the ocean and the visual arts into a successful lifelong career. “I became an artist in order to surf the world. My thanks and appreciation to all the great surfers I am fortunate to have worked with and the hundreds of kind people all over the world who helped and supported my efforts, without whom I would not have been able to be successful.”
