Internationally renowned and award winning photographer Fred Pompermayer has been dedicated to shooting Big Wave Surfing and Adventure sports for over a decade. 

He has been nominated every single year since 2007 for the Big Wave Awards capturing the best photo title five times -- Biggest Paddle Award in 2009, 2010, 2015 & 2017 and the Biggest Tube Award in 2013.

With a degree in architecture, Fred made a career decision early on to pursue his love of surfing and photography instead of sitting at a desk. Fred takes a hands-on approach: customizing and building water housings for his cameras and flashes; and innovating with new technologies to bring his vision alive. 

He hopes that his images will inspire others to pursue their dreams and get out there and live life to the fullest.
