One type of art that has become increasingly popular in Ocean Beach is photography. A couple of the local professional photographers sell their pictures at the Ocean Beach Farmers Market. Similarly, many amateur photographers can be found in OB taking pictures of the many interesting things here such as the Ocean Beach Pier, Newport Avenue, surfers and the waves along the beach and cliffs.
Often you will find small jewelry craftsman selling their art on the street around Newport Avenue. Many use unique materials, like copper, colorful stones, wire and hemp to create an artistic balance between form and function.
