This is the guy Dane Reynolds and Bobby Martinez call when they surf near home. William Sharp has held down the 805 for more than three decades with consistent, high-action surf photography. What excites him about photography after all these years? “Seeing surfers pushing the limits of what they can do,” he says. “And enjoying the unexpected when it happens.” Considering the guys he shoots daily, you know he’s got lots to enjoy.
