For the December 2008 issue of Surfer Magazine, our illustrious photographer Art Brewer shot thirteen of “The Most Influential Surfers of the Year”. The fold-out cover includes reknowned surfers such as Kelly Slater, Andy Irons, and Carissa Moore (just to name a few).
Art was given the honor of shooting these talented athletes and praised by Surfer in their article on the issue:
“… that journey doesn’t happen without help, much of which comes from longstanding contributors who have been a part of this magazine’s history for decades. Like Art Brewer. We don’t have to tell you who Art Brewer is. He’s a man of mythic proportion, who’s been routinely cranking out some of the best surf and lifestyle photos for over four decades now. If you don’t know whether or not you’ve seen an Art Brewer shot, you have, as his stamp is on too many iconic photos to mention here. What’s remarkable is that he’s still at it, and working incredibly hard to accomplish results. Like this month’s cover photograph. Art worked with the crew at the mag until the early hours of the morning setting up the photo shoo and then was back at 5:30 a.m. to work tirelessly all day shooting the best surfers in the world. Art is a legend, and he deserves recognition,”.
