"When I was a kid in the 1980 and 1990's these guys just started to show up in San Simeon. Right off this beach I used to scuba dive, but today I would never think about that because of all the great white sharks that populate the area now. In 2020 the cycle starts over again as fights start and mating rituals begin on the Central Coast. I have spent many hours just watching this game start and end. Just beautiful."
Vincent Shay (USA) is an award winning videographer and photographer from the Central Coast of California residing in Los Osos, California.
For the last 40 years, he has tried to achieve a life long goal of moving himself to a more close view of the beauty of what life has to offer. He loves the ocean... and everything about it and it just so happens he lives in Central California where life abounds.
In 1982, he got lucky to call this place home and hope through his images to show others his perspective of how awesome and raw this place is. "I don't pick my camera up for money anymore...that just seemed like a 'job' and less than liked it. The last ten years I am happy to work in the active outdoor industry owning Avila Beach Paddlesports with my wife, Em, and only take photos for myself. If others love the images and maybe want to purchase them for their own homes or galleries, I am truly honoured".
