About Us

It's all about YOU at Avellanas Surf Photos
 If you visit Costa Rica to surf, you are on vacation, or just chilling with the family on the beach, I'd like to invite you to celebrate those moments with images that you will treasure for a lifetime.
Photographs record our story, they are the graphic memories that will make us recall emotions and feelings of that exact moment in time: that ride, that sunset...
Cherish your story - It's Precious
Hi, my name is Jorgelina, I'm a surf photographer and I LOVE IT! 
Born and raised in Mar del Plata, Argentina, I've been drawn to photography since my teen years, I studied at "El Taller de Fotografia" de Julian Rodriguez back in the film days and transitioned to digital as soon as DSLRs appeared. I started out in street and travel photography while working in a Travel Agency and traveled as much as I could: different trips to Brazil,  Italy in '97, Australia in '98, Dominican Republic in '99, Costa Rica in 2000, Brazil again in 2001, the States in 2002. In 2003 I moved to Tamarindo Costa Rica for good, living life, surfing and shooting surf.
In 2006 I met Barney, my husband. He's a boilermaker by trade and started shooting video at FDR and other skateparks around Philly, his hometown. He grew up spending his summers surfing in Ventnor, NJ and moved to Costa in 2004, where he teamed up with some local videographers and skaters to make some short videos.
Together we started SILVER SEA PHOTO & VIDEO, filming surf from the water and the beach and editing together; some of our old stuff can be found in youtube (search silverseavideo). He then decided to concentrate in his boilermaking carreer and got into SUP surfing.
We moved to Playa Avellanas in 2008 when our first baby, Noah, was born and I've been photographing surf on a daily basis since January 2009 as Avellanas Surf Photos. In 2010 we were blessed to welcome our baby girl Kaya.
To this day I find joy in walking to the beach, meeting new people, taking photos of their rides, their families, and help them record their stories. You can find our whole family, even our dogs Beans and Luna at the beach while I'm doing what I love most: capturing moments and memories for surfers, friends and families in the beautiful surroundings that Avellanas has to offer.
Thank you for your interest in Avellanas Surf Photos, please contact us for inquiries about your surf, family or the photo session you always wanted.
