Cory Ransom ~ York, Maine

Tell us a little about yourself and how you got into photography

- I grew up in York, ME and have always enjoyed the outdoors, growing up on the ocean I have always had a strong connection with it.  After high school I decided to take a year off to further my skiing and with a lot of travel lined up I took the money from my summer job and bought a camera for myself to document everything.  Slowly overtime I really started to fall in love with the camera and documenting my friends both up on the mountain as well as in the water. Now I get to use my camera for both work and fuel my passion  for photography. 

What got you into the Maine surf/beach culture?

- Living in a beach town your whole world is surrounded by the ocean and what the waves are doing each day.  If there are waves its always an easy decision to paddle out even if its only for a short session, and when its flat there is a long list of other activities you can find yourself doing; sailing, fishing, swimming, or exploring a new part of the coast. The Maine coast is something truely special and still have a laundry list of places to visit in our own state. 

What's your favorite part of being a photographer?

- Favorite part is usually meeting new people in the water and seeing the massive smile on their face when you get a good shot of them.  There are not many water photographers in Maine so offering friends and new friends a new perspective on their surfing is always fun. 

What's the hardest part about shooting outdoors in the winter months?

- Being F'ing cold! Your feet always go first swimming around so I have now upgraded to 8mm booties but fitting those under some swim fins requires going 3 sizes up! 

Where can people find you (socials, website, etc) and what's a fun fact about yourself?

Joshua Kelley ~ Seacoast, NH
Tell us a little about yourself and how you got into photography
I grew up in a small town called Eaton in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  I always loved being outside and staying active...skiing, snowboarding, skating, climbing, hiking, hockey, dirt bikes, skateboarding and surfing.  My mother would always buy me cameras so that I could take photos of my friends when we were off on one of our adventures.  As I got older, the cameras got better as did the photos.  I also had subscriptions to National Geographic and Thrasher magazine. I would be amazed by the images and dream of traveling and capturing photos of things that I loved.
What got you into the Maine/Seacoast surf/beach culture? 
 
Our family had a home in York, Maine.  I would spend much of my summers in York and loving the beaches and ocean.   When I was about four years old I saw my first surfboard and was in awe.  I couldn't wait to get on one so my parents rented one for me and I fell in love.  There was no turning back after that.
 
What's your favorite part of being a photographer?  
 
I would have to say, sharing with others the beauty I see in this world.

What's the hardest part about shooting outdoors in the winter months?

Keeping warm.  You are holding a cold piece of metal in subzero weather and gloves only get in your way.  Growing up in the cold helps. But...if I see waves, it is easy to ignore the cold.

Where can people find you (socials, website, etc) and what's a fun fact about yourself?

Fun fact - I moved to CA for a few years to be a snowboard coach in Squaw Valley but missed surfing so left to be a surf guide in the Baja.  As time passed, I missed the consistency of the surf in the north so I moved back to Nor' Cal and lived and surfed there for over ten years.
