The Kid Stays in the Picture

Mikey DeTemple is a jack-of-all-water-trades. A pro surfer by age 16—he went on to win four East Coast Surfing Champion titles—DeTemple also has a passion for photography and filmmaking, the latter of which he has indulged by directing seafaring-inspired short films for Olympus, Jack Spade and Vogue, as well as the 2011 award-winning long-form surf film Sight/Sound. Here, the Montauk resident shares some of the memorable shots he captured during his global excursions in search of the next great wave.
