Surf Labor Profile Gallery: Tim Stamps and Stamps Surfboards

Nestled in a little corporate park right down the street from Foam E-Z is the global HQ for Tim Stamps, owner and founder of Stamps Surfboards. Tim, a very unassuming guy, has his little shop where he and his crew design, shape, and glass boards the old fashioned way – one at a time.

Being a small business Tim plays many roles. While we were there for the interview he was owner, marketer, tour guide, shipping/receiving, accountant, and clean up man. Phone ringing all the while….haha! You’ve got to love a guy who’s willing to do it all!

For the past few weeks we’ve featured some very seasoned photographers. Something like 75+ years of experience in the business. Their photos are amazing and cover a wide range of styles. This week we decided to go out and find some raw talent. Holy smokes were we blow away.

We caught up with 20 year-old Sarah Lee while she was on break from school. Poor Sarah has to split her time between Southern California and the frozen Hawaiian tundra…yeah, exactly. The good news is she’s in what Maverick would call “a target rich environment.”

So Sarah’s been shooting for 5 years and has a knack for capturing moments of extreme awesomeness. She’d tell you her style is undefined and raw. Well, that may be true because her portfolio isn’t a gazillion images deep but she definitely has her own style.

In Focus Gallery: Jay Golien

Welcome to this weeks installment of In Focus. We caught up with Jay Golien last week fresh after a surf session in North San Diego. And I mean fresh out of the water – he took the call from the sand and I could hear waves breaking in the background…awesome.

Jay has been shooting for 20+ years and he’s a graphic designer by trade. This is a great combination because it allows him to use two separate talents to create an image that is truly unique. Jay started out shooting lifestyle pieces and got into surf photography about 5 years ago. He shoots a lot of his local North San Diego breaks and a lot of the local guys that call those waves home.
