Jeff Biege is a photographer/surfer/nature lover from the Midwest. Jeff grew up spending his summers in southern California and started skating and body boarding as a child which led to a never ending love affair with the ocean . Extensive travel to and living in places like Costa Rica, Hawaii, Australia, Africa, Brazil, Europe and the Dominican Republic, has helped to broaden his perspective on the world and beauty it contains."Im passionate about nature and ocean conservation, climate change and its affects on the oceans eco systems. With over 30 years of my life spent in the ocean, its easy to see the changes in the marine environment . Through the years i have been involved with few key environmental organizations such as the Surfrider foundation and Share the stoke foundation. If you love the ocean I would highly recommend checking out these organizations! My hope is that through my photography and in showcasing the beauty of the oceans and natural landscapes, I can effect an interest in protecting these natural wonders"!Over the past 5 years Jeff has taken photography courses at the old school square center for arts under the guide of his teacher/ friend Russell levene with furthered education at the art institute. Jeff is currently a student at Palm beach state collage studying photography. Through this continued education Jeff has expanded his knowledge of light, composition, color, and various post processing techniques. "I love photography and truly enjoy the art and craft of capturing and creating fine art images!""I believe that photography, like life is a never ending learning experience! My love and passion for surfing and the ocean will always draw me to this subject . My focus is to create exciting, fresh, unique images, from the surreal to the sublime, in hopes of capturing the feeling and mood of the moment."Some of Jeff's photos have been featured in magazines and online publications ,as well as winning awards in the Facebook "Pro" Photo competition.5-25-2014 WPTV 5 news story about 11 time world surfing champ Kelly Slater http://www.wptv.com/news/region-n-palm-beach-county/juno-beach/11-time-world-surfing-champion-kelly-slater-visits-palm-beach-county-surfs-juno-pier
