Liz Magee is a filmmaker and photographer based in Brooklyn. She grew up surfing and skateboarding in New Jersey, and has lived near the ocean for most of her life.
Her personal work documents the people and places of action sports and the diversity and lifestyles influenced by these activities.
She has spent the past five years creating images across various formats and platforms. Her work has taken her around the globe, creating films in three different languages. Projects have appeared on NPR Music, Now This, NYC & Company, and Voice of America Indonesia, and for brands such as Holiday Inn, Barneys New York, and NYC GO.
She has directed and produced two short documentary films, CUBAN WAVE RIDERS and WHERE THERE ARE WAVES. Both films explore non-traditional subjects around the subculture of surfing and have screened at numerous film festivals around the world.
