My name is Mike Smolowe. I grew up outside of Philadelphia and didn't surf for my first time until I was 17. In the 8 years since, surfing has taken my life and shaped it into what it is today. I graduated last August from Brooks Institute and am currently living in Northern LA County traveling, shooting, exploring. The ocean has shaped me not only as a photographer but also as a person and I am proud to represent the action, waves and people of the sport of surfing through my work. A transplant? Yes. A visionary? Maybe. A dedicated photographer aiming to create, document, and enhance the moments before, during, after and in-between? Absolutely.
