In front of the lens for a change, Joanne O’Shaughnessy poses for a frame.

Originally from Rockaway Beach, New York, and now residing at the Jersey Shore, I’ve been surfing and shooting photos of the ocean since I was a kid. My photography encompasses surfing, lifestyle, and coastal imagery. I primarily photograph the coastal towns of Monmouth and Ocean County, NJ, but spend several weeks a year traveling to tropical surf destinations including recent trips to Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, and Mexico.
