LeRoy “Granny” Grannis – The Godfather of Surf Photography

LeRoy Grannis, or Granny as the surf community he helped to create knew him, was one of the originators of surf photography. As one of the very first photographers to hoist heavy and cumbersome camera equipment onto his board and paddle into the deep blue, he was able to capture the sport of surfing in its element. The epic images he was able to capture from this unique vantage point was revolutionary, and the ability to share this perspective with those who hadn’t yet had the opportunity to ride waves in part sparked the surfing craze of the 60’s.
