Stone Ohana – Santa Cruz, California

A portion of my month long stay in California included spending some time in Santa Cruz. This part of Northern California is fast becoming my favorite area of the country. Friendly people, great coffee and excellent weather lends itself to an active, outdoor lifestyle. While in town to shoot some longboarding and work on an article about local shaper Source Surfboards, I stayed with father and son: John and Reilly Stone. I feel so lucky to be welcomed into their daily lives. These are a few of my favorite images I made while hanging with the Stone Family.

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.

    I was only in Santa Cruz twice, once for an afternoon trip when we lived in San Francisco, and once for a mountain bike excursion there. But yes, very cool place, very outdoorsy. Good fish tacos.

    And the setting for THE LOST BOYS. So there’s that.

    Nice image.
