Che Chorley is an award winning photographer with a passion and affinity for the ocean. Che is blessed to be in a position in which he can pursue such an accidental art-form, taking photography seriously, but not necessarily expecting serious results. Photography has been a natural accompaniment to his travels and he continues to strive to convey the beauty and uniqueness that surfing, adventure and travel allow. Che studied photography at the Centre for Creative Photography in Adelaide, and currently exploring new horizons and seascapes in the Northern Territory.  Che has worked throughout Australia and internationally and continues to work commercially for a variety clients when he's not bobbing about in the ocean. 


Che is available for commercial, editorial and commissioned work.
