Garret Byrum


Garret is the 1st place winner of the Sports Category with the amazing shot of the surfer under the wave. From a pure technical aspect, it was one of a handful of images that were entered that really stood out. Think about it...Garret had to be in the water, with his camera in a water proof housing, with a wave crashing overhead, close to shore. There are so many neat stories about each of these shots I am getting.

Garret writes:

Camera: Canon 20d
Lens: Sigma 10mm Fisheye
Del Mar Housing Projects housing
The Wedge, Newport Beach, California

Taken during one of the last South swells to hit Wedge before it shuts down for the winter (it doesn’t break on north swells, which occur during the winter months on the west coast). Woke up early and was lucky to have a nice cloud free morning making for some beautiful backlit barrel shots.

Technically yes, I am considered a professional photographer, but as of now just barely getting by haha. I am 22 years old and a 2009 graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography. Pursuing a career as a freelance Commercial/Advertising photographer.

Really, REALLY great stuff. It is so cool to finally know more about each photographer, while not all of them have their own websites, the one's I have seen have all been very high quality work and great sources of inspiration.

Garret is on his way to a very long and successful and well paying photography career. Thank you Garret for sharing your talent with us!
