Big Congrats to Local Outer Banks Surf Photographer Matt Lusk

Matt Lusk is a relative newcomer to the surf photography world.  With only a few short years of experience under his belt, he's making a strong name for himself, and the accolades are starting to accumulate.  In fact, you could say he is absolutely blowing up! Matt can already claim numerous spreads in great publications (Surfer, Surfing, Surfer's Journal, Eastern Surf Magazine), and now he can add a couple more awards to the memory banks. 1. Matt was just announced as the Photographer of the Year for Eastern Surf Magazine.

2. Matt just scored a two-page spread in Australia’s Stab Magazine Photo Annual book...even the other side of the world digs him!  Stab picks only 15 of the best photos from around the world to be featured in the book.  Matt's photo is an aerial photo of South Africas Damien Fahrenfort no hand backside barrel courtesy of Hurricane Earl.

In addition to capturing awards, Matt is still busy capturing amazing shots.  As a great surf photographer must be, Matt is always hard at work looking for the next great photo opp.  He recently took a trip up the coast chasing swell, meeting new surf compadres, and snapping great pictures.  The trip led him all the way to New England, and Surfer Magazine was kind enough to get them on the web so we could all enjoy:  rad pics here.

Matt's on a tear that just cannot be stopped.  He just announced today that he scored a spread in the newest issue of Transworld Surf Magazine.

And now for what I'm sure is Matt's biggest honor of the year.  :) Matt has been one of the featured photographers for the Seaside Vacations annual brochure for the past two years.  Here are a couple examples of the stellar work Matt captured for us this year.

And thanks for being a part of our annual brochure!  We love sharing your pictures with all of our guests.
