Larry Beard’s love for the ocean and art started at an early age. This love brought him into competitive surfing where he thrived as an amateur winning over thirty events. He also took classes and produced every abstract style of art. Larry went on to surf the US Pro Tour for 10 years. In the meantime, Larry received a real-world education in marketing and design. Being a part of 14 different start-up businesses has given Larry a unique insight to all attributes of being an artist and a business man. Larry later jumped into fashion photography and has worked with many top clothing companies. But the love of the ocean was always calling, and Larry began shooting beach, sunset, and other landscape photography.
The art of photography is a statement that is unique to each individual. It is Larry’s mission to strive for images that will strike an emotion with its viewers. Whether it be excitement, awe, sorrow, or any other thought; allowing the observer to feel is the goal.
