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 enjoy the personal interaction of creating life style 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 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.
