When Jared is not photographing, he can be found somewhere in California surfing, mountain biking, bodyboarding, or skiing.
“Since I was a young boy, I loved taking trips to the beach. I was mesmerized by the ocean and its energy. As I grew up, I developed a strong bond with the power of waves as well as other natural earth formations. It is my passion and joy, not only to capture these images, but to share them with others. I don’t create art. I just capture the beauty of what already exists”. -Jared
