Davila comes from area not known for its A-List photographers
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 27 May, 2014 - Damian Davila was born and raised in Baja, Mexico. His work is inspired and influenced by growing up at the beach (he’s been in the same house since he was born). Damian grew up surfing and bodyboarding in his front yard with friends. As the years passed, he began observing the ocean with a different perspective.
“It was so exciting to watch every wave break,” Davila said. “I was thinking to myself, ‘I wish I had a camera in this moment to take a picture and show it to my friends and family and to describe the feeling of surfing.’”

Back in the day, there was not that much technology available to Davila, so he began shooting with a small waterproof camera that he got at Walmart and that set him on this path to follow his dream. He likes to travel to the best breaks in Mexico such as Mexpipe, Mainland, Cabo, and, of course, Baja to capture the best moments of surf and nature and everything the ocean has to offer up.
