Altpick Member Focus :: This Week in Review

Photographer Bob Stevens grew up at the beach and started surfing at 12, lucky kid.
Spoke a dialect peppered with terms like ‘stoked’, ‘bitchin’ and ‘dude’. Still uses dude a lot. He thought he wanted to be a writer, an ad copywriter no less. Things got in the way, like surfing and beach volleyball. The latter led him to photography classes, long story.
“I jumped into my own business and haven’t looked back”, says Stevens.
