Rusty Silverman


During medical school, a great summer job opportunity presented itself – a Beach Doctor at the States Avenue tent in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It was then, in 1968, that my appreciation of ocean lifeguards began, and with it a lifelong passion to capture the stamina, bravery, strength, beauty, and competitive drive of lifeguards through photography.

Of special interest have been the competitions, both men and women, featuring all our South Jersey teams, beach patrols up the coast, and national teams around the country.
