Jared Weintraub, age 18, has been capturing photographs since he was five, and is recognized as an award-winning photographer in San Diego. He has been awarded "Top Teen Photographer For Carlsbad", won first place at a regional photo competition comprised of seven counties in California, has won first-place ribbons at the San Diego County Fair, and has an extensive following on Instagram.
Passionately committed to shooting and editing the most vibrant photos, Jared spends hours each week refining his technique and seeking out new locations to shoot. Working with a local photo lab that specializes exclusively in printing fine-art photography, he offers his work on different mediums including archival photographic paper, metal, acrylic, and canvas. Each piece is signed for authenticity and available for shipment worldwide.
Jared is currently a sophomore at California Polytechnic State University. He volunteers his time for ReSurf; a 501(c)3 non profit organization that provides underprivileged youth with sustainable surf mentorship programs all over the world. He is also an active brand ambassador/photographer for Spy Optics, Lume Cube, and FYI CBD.
When Jared is not photographing, he can be found somewhere in California surfing, mountain biking, bodyboarding, or skiing. His dream is to be a world renowned photographer with his own galleries, and to share his art with as many people as possible by having his work visible and enjoyed worldwide.
“Since I was a young boy, I loved taking trips to the beach. I was mesmerized by the ocean and its energy. As I grew up, I developed a strong bond with the power of waves as well as other natural earth formations. It is my passion and joy, not only to capture these images, but to share them with others. I don’t create art. I just capture the beauty of what already exists”. -Jared
