Hiya. How’s it going?

I’m Christopher Foley, AKA Misha, AKA the Ambulant Photographer. You can call me whatever you want. I’m a storyteller. Hat snob. Occassional bird-wearer.


I’m a guy with some cameras. I shoot sometimes. I blog sometimes. I share what I’ve learned and I write the occasional review. I’m always open for interesting collaborations and projects. I wrote a longer bio and it was all pretentious and stupid and I felt like a jerk when I read it back. This one is better.


I make photographs as a way of making sense of the world I live in. It’s really that simple. I shoot for posterity, to keep some sort of record, and I shoot because I love seeing my work on paper. I feel that a photograph isn’t completely alive until it’s on paper.


I’ve currently got three open projects that will probably take me another 5 years to finish, and that’s fine. I don’t do this for a living (thank God.)


I travel when I can and I’m currently obsessed with the California coast, particularly the Santa Barbara waterfront. I’ve put together the Iconic Santa Barbara Collection, and it’s doing pretty well for itself.

Want to work together, maybe?

Do you have something cool and interesting on your plate? Let me know. I might want to play too.
