Trec A Lifestyle Portrait, Venice Beach 1992
While touring America as a younger man! my last stop was Venice Beach in L.A.
I found Venice beach to be everything I had anticipated it to be including some very interesting people for capturing lifestyle portraits.
It was while enjoying the beach that I saw this guy working Brooks Tower (lifeguard station) and I knew I couldn’t depart California without capturing an iconic lifeguard made famous by Baywatch!
After chatting for a short while I discovered that the gentlemen’s name was Trec and he informed me he was approaching 40 years old and had been a lifeguard for many years in Venice Beach.
Not wanting to distract him long for obvious reasons I quickly captured several frames of film of him with thanks and left him to keep everyone safe around Brooks Tower.
