Standup Journal honors and frames for a world audience the results of thousands of submissions from the hardest working–and swimming–artists we rely on to inspire us all... These artists are known as “The Photographers,” and they always come through!
Standup Journal comes out every quarter for one very important reason: three months is the perfect amount of time for our loyal readers to soak up the amazing photos and stories over and over again. - Clay
