The most recent winner of the Follow the Light grant, Seth de Roulet has consistently produced some of the best imagery to come from the talent-rich area of Santa Barbara and Ventura, with plenty of covers and spreads to his name. “Photography is emotional,” he says. “It may not be obvious to everybody but when I look back on old images it’s amazing how much I can relate to my mood that day and to the mood of the swell.”
