As a native Southern Californian, Catherine Gregory has always had a deep love of the ocean. Her summers were spent at the beach packing peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and hopping on the bus for the short trip from Irvine, CA to Newport Beach, even before she could drive. Catherine enjoyed hanging out all day watching the surf action. Attending art school at a young age, her paintings were of sunsets and water scenes. Later in life she discovered a passion for photography as another creative outlet and started shooting the very scenes she loved to paint as a girl. Catherine is rarely without her camera in tow. She spends hours on the shore taking surf shots just for the love of it. As the sun sets, she doesn’t miss the opportunity to shoot that, too. Catherine resides in San Clemente, California which brings all of her favorite things to her front door.
