Oceanside, CA, Date TBD, 2005 — TransWorld Media announced today that it will post an exclusive online photo gallery of shots taken by the grand-prize winner of the Coca-Cola® “Take Your Best Shot action sports photo contest, Long Beach resident Mark Fogarty, at the 2005 Bank of the West Beach Games and Honda U.S. Open of Surfing.
Log on to actionphotocontest.com to view the action-packed images by Fogarty, who worked alongside the world-renowned staff photographers of TransWorld SURF, the official surf magazine of the 2005 Bank of the West Beach Games, for four days during the event, shooting the best surfers in the world as they competed for a major title.
Fogarty earned the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to shoot for TransWorld SURF, which is known for its innovative, pioneering surf photography, at the U.S. Open of Surfing after his photo of pro surfer Brett Simpson slashing the top off a mushy Huntington Beach wave during a local competition earlier this year was selected as the winning entry from hundreds of submissions.
In addition to the online photo gallery, special behind-the-scenes footage of Fogarty and the TransWorld SURF photo team at the 2005 Beach Games will air on Daily Download on Fuse on October 4, 2005 at 6:00 p.m. EST (Dish Network channel 158 and DirecTV channel 339 or to find Fuse near you, check out www.fuse.tv/makeitreal ).
