Editor’s Note: Lefty Ray Chapa is a San Antonio TX based, award winning, professional photographer and writer specializing in Tejano music and outdoor subjects like fly fishing and kayak fishing. He is also a lecturer on the Texas fly fishing opportunities and can be found giving slideshows and seminars around the country. When not photographing Tejano bands, he is kayak fishing at the Texas coast or guiding fly fisherman on the Texas Hill Country streams.


Lefty Ray’s work has appeared in magazines like La Prensa, Newsweek, Texas Highways, Southwest Fly Fishing, Paddler, Shallow Water Angler, Fly Fishing in Saltwaters, and Texas Parks & Wildlife. His work has also appeared in newspapers like the San Antonio Express-News and Saltwater Texas.


Lefty Ray has done commercial photography for clients like Fly Rod & Reel magazine, Bass Pro Shops, and for the Surf to Summit Company. His Tejano music photography includes producing images for Tejas Records, Freddie Records, Univision, various independent labels, Museo Alameda, Academy of Tejano Artists & Musicians, KXTN Radio, Tejano Roots Hall of Fame Museum, the State Fair of Texas, and Tejano FM. Recent CD projects that he has photographed include David Lee Garza y Los Musicales, Ram Herrera, and Chente Barrera’s CD which won the Grammy in the Tejano category back in March.


Originally from North Texas, Lefty Ray graduated from Texas A&M and moved to San Antonio in the early 1980s. For over 30 years he has photographed a variety of subjects in various locales across Texas. In his words “It’s either get up at 4:30 am or return at 4:30 am.”


The nickname “Lefty” comes from his high school golf team playing days. While actually left-handed he learned to play golf right-handed using his dad's extra set of golf clubs. While the team as a whole was not in the caliber of Tiger Woods, the golf coach was often overheard saying to other coaches that “His team could probably not outplay their team, but his team could out-drink and out-fight any other team in the state of Texas!”
