Probably one of my personal favorite line-up shots I’ve taken over the years. Simply because Skeleton Bay is one of the more challenging places to capture as a whole and even though this is just a part of the wave you start to get an idea of what makes it so special. Stoked to see the image in print and running as a DPS in the latest issue of Hardcore Magazine in Brazil.
My partner in crime, Jay Hearn Dog has been rubbing shoulders with the big wigs of the Surf Film Industry recently. He is currently in New York promoting his movie, the Africa Project and getting great reviews. So stoked for him, he really deserves it! Jay mailed me these snap shots of my photos from the movie which run inside front and back cover of the festivals program. Not too shabby we think! Told him to bring me back a copy. Keep it up Jay, awesome stuff!
Some recent spreads appearing in the latest issue of Zigzag and it’s 2012/13 Boardshorts Guide. I remember the grab rail shot of Chris Leppan really well. It was a perfect day down the South Coast with a nice ground swell running, a land breeze and some good barrels were coming through. Positioning in the water was a little tricky that day with the banks but i could see that straight after the barrel on the outside was nice section and kept going to Chris, grab your rail, grab your rail. He doesn’t need any pointers from me though… ha-ha but he jammed his rail and nailed the shot, nice one buddy, Stoked!
Surf photography is not just about the action it’s about so much more… Just as surfing is a lifestyle, all those moment we live in between waves define who we are and what we do.
