JARVIS (J.T.) GRAY
Growing up on Cape Hatteras Island, Jarvis (J.T.) Gray began taking and making photographs at the age of 14. He quickly realized he had an eye for capturing beauty of the island. As a junior in High School he won his first photo contest, winning best color photograph in the state, at the time it was quite an achievement considering JT was self tought. Always having a passion for the ocean he borrowed a 110 Minolta waterproof camera and started shooting photos of his friends surfing. This is what JT excelled at and loves doing. To this day he would rather be getting washed around in big heavy shorebreak than anything else. After moving to Oahu in early 2002, JT quickly came on the scene and had his first photos published in WATER Magazine, since then he has been published in everything from PRO DIGITAL IMAGING, BODYBOARDING Magazine, Surfing Mag, and has been featured in SURGE Bodyboarding magazine and his work can be seen in numerous books worldwide. JT has also done advertisement work for WAVE REBEL, ELMNOP, OPTION, LACER Headwear, Oahu Grown Clothing, Legendary Empowerment, Dirty Handz and in 2012 did a collaboration with RUSTY clothing. JT uses the finest NIKON equipment along with CMT Waterhousings.
I love photography because i am able to capture and share a moment in time that will never change.
The best feeling in the world is seeing a clients reaction after they view the images we produce. Smiles for days!
Interview with SURGE Bodyboarding Magazine
Photography initially was a way for me to document everyday moments of my two daughters' lives. In what seems like overnight, my passion for photography quickly blossomed.
When taking photos, I enjoy capturing not just the physical, but more importantly the emotion and feeling of that moment in time.
Every time I create a successful image, I experience a true sense of joy and excitement within. I strive to pass on those same feelings to others through my images.
