Andreea Waters is a Photographer and Author. Originally from Bucharest, Romania, in May 2012 she discovered Rockaway Beach, where her documentary photography began. Andreea's images capture the ocean, culture and art of surfing. She puts herself in the elements without reservation. When you least expect it she is on the beach, resulting in powerful and authentic images that represent timeless moments in East Coast surf culture. 

In February, 2016, Andreea released a photography book titled, Surf NYC - a visual story and celebration of ocean community, showcasing a period in time in New York surf culture and the moods of the Atlantic Ocean. Published by Schiffer Publishing, Surf NYC is a hard cover coffee table book printed in color.  

Andreea's work is published by The Guardian, WIRED, Slate, The Gothamist, Norwegian Magazine, New York Observer, Eastern Surf Magazine, Outside Magazine, Adorama, and recognized internationally in travel, lifestyle and fashion digital media. Andreea is based in New York and Florida.
