Photographer of the Week – Sarah Lee
By DPG Editorial Staff, December 5, 2013 @ 06:00 AM (EST)

From Alison's Adventures Series

Living on the Big Island, Sarah Lee is incessantly glued to camera viewfinders, swim fins, and the sea. Her passion for photography, particularly underwater and surf photography was shaped by a childhood where she was constantly playing in and around the ocean. As a long-distance swimmer and surfer, her strength as an athlete in the ocean allows her to capture swimmers and surfers in a carefree and light-hearted way.

"My aim in making photos is to capture and accentuate the beauty in what surrounds me,” says Lee. “Photography to me is a mode of visual problem solving and a way to perpetuate the stoke, whether it be above the surface or below."

She is currently finishing her final year at Chapman University, majoring in Film Production with an emphasis in Documentary, as well as working on an adventure film series: Alison's Adventures. Her goal is to continue to use her talents to document the lives of water people whose stories need to be told around the world.
