John Witzig began his working life as a draughtsman/graphic artist with a government agency. From the early 1960s he combined surfing with surfing journalism and photography. He wrote for Surfing World from 1963, becoming full-time on that magazine in 1966. In 1970 he co-founded Tracks magazine. He edited Surf International and Sea Notes from 197

As a photographer "he took the defining images of the period with an artful eye, incorporating grain and texture to capture the aesthetic as well as the aesthetic prowess (of the times)." (Steve Pezman).
