A keen surfer since the age of 16 and photographer since 25, I made the decision to combine my two interests in 2011. Whilst I still surf regularly, my preference now is to enter the water armed with a camera & housing rather than a board & leash.
Shooting surf and the guys that ride it in the UK is a hit and miss business. Long periods of inconsistent swell and onshore winds, combined with cold water and very often grey, overcast skies make this a challenging and unpredictable pastime. However despite it’s downsides, I find it a curiously addictive way to spend my time: a great balance of adrenaline that only mother nature can provide, a good physical workout and a smattering of technical geekery, not to mention the stoke (for me and surfer) when a great moment is captured.
