In February I flew to Santa Cruz, California to film a short piece on Reilly Stone, an up and coming longboarder. We shot in Santa Cruz and the surrounding areas as Reilly spoke to me about waves, family and his aspirations. His surfing is a treat and truly special when filmed from the water. We had a blast! That video will be released in the coming weeks.
From California we headed to Sayulita, Mexico where Reilly surfed in an international longboard competition. Mexico was filled with music, local culture and of course tacos. Here are a few still images I captured along the way and a few more can be seen on my Instagram: @RyanStruck
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.
