The 2012 South Jersey Lifeguard racing season begins tonight, Friday, July 6th, with the Cape May Lifeguard Championships at Rambler Road beach in Wildwood Crest and the... Captain Michael D. McGrath Longport Memorials  at 33rd Street.

The lifeguard racing are a great way to enjoy a party atmosphere at the  beach while watching the most skilled and athletic lifeguards in South Jersey competing.

I have arranged with Michael Martin, a professional photographer from Wildwood Crest, to feature pictures in blogs from some of this year's  South Jersey lifeguard races.

Michael is the perfect person for this assignment, having published a book entitled "South Jersey Lifeguard Races -the Book".

Michael is also a very talented portrait photographer, specializing in beach portraits.  Call him for information at 609-729-0838.

To prepare for the new season of races, I asked Michael for a variety of some of his favorite shots from his book.   I think you'll agree that they are great photographs!  Check back for future blogs with pictures from this year's races.
