In January 2009, Steve Fitzpatrick was named "Best Photographer of the Year 2008" by Eastern Surf Magazine for his photos of locals surfing waves over 10 meters in Tres Palmas, Puerto Rico.
Steve has been passionately photographing Puerto Rico's surf culture for the past 20 years, and is certainly the most-published Caribbean surf photographer. His aquatic photos, lineups, portraits and his talent for capturing atmospheres have been illustrated in numerous print and online magazines, including SURFER, Surfing, ESM, Surfer's Path, The Surfers Journal, Surf Europe, Australian Surfing Life, Australian Surfing World, Tracks, Surfline, and ESPN.com.
Steve led his quest for the beautiful picture in Puerto Rico first, but this passion also took him around the world.
Over the years, Steve has built his reputation for excellence in surf photography.
