Katie Graham is a Los Angeles based photographer who focuses on the California coastal lifestyle and landscapes. Her greatest passion comes from documenting the surf lifestyle. Endlessly chasing perfect waves in remote places, Katie has a profound ability to capture athletes connecting with the raw power and beauty of nature. She often pulls back the perspective to allow the viewer to place her subjects properly in the diverse arenas that surfers inhabit. Her photos have appeared in various periodicals and entertainment resources from ESPN and Surfline.com to a Fox television show. Katie was born and raised in West Los Angeles, CA. Her childhood was spent surrounded by a world of creativity. Katie’s parents Craig and Pattie have owned and operated the independent bookstore Vagabond Books for over 30 years. Katie’s formative years were spent in the bookstore forming friendships and exchanging notes with store regulars like Ray Bradbury, Elmore Leonard, Ralph Steadman, and Henry Rollins. From a young age she learned the importance of personal expression through art. Katie’s love for adventure and exploration began at a young age and continues to be a central theme in her photography today. On family trips to Yosemite, armed with an old pentax camera and over-sized Ansel Adams books, Katie would retrace the steps of the great landscape photography master. Katie’s photography seeks to express moments of excitement, awe, and wonder that resonant in eternity.
