Bio - Secondhand Surfer

My name is Cheri Royal and Secondhand Surfer has been a five year project of surf photography. 

I am a life long artist - having earned a B.F.A from the University of North Florida.

My photos are a refection of the surf culture that I live in. You can find me, on the beach, seeking the optimal viewpoint or the most convenient (shade). Often I find it's one-in-the-same. My camera takes me where I want to go ~ painting light - on a digital pallete - in a world of limitless color. Every surfer and every wave is photo worthy. My homebreaks are Fernandina Beach, Florida and Playa Avellanas, Costa Rica. WHEN WORDS BECOME UNCLEAR - WHICH IS  OFTEN - I FOCUS ON PHOTOGRAPHY. Ansel Adams and Secondhand Surfer.

My surf photos are sold as digital downloads with licensing rights.

I also work as a second shooter at weddings, and love to do lifestyle images.

All of my photographs are copyrighted. Some are displayed without a watermark for viewing.

I do not give anyone the right to use my images. They are by permission only.

Please feel free to contact me at secondhandsurfer@hotmail.com or you can message me on my Facebook page by the same name Secondhand Surfer.


I am an organic photographer with down to earth prices...please remember, everyone needs to eat.
