Born in West Oz and now living in Bali with my wife Morgan and son Kai. Life is good. Living in Bali and being a surfing photographer go hand in hand. Everyone knows Indo has waves but for sure you never get bored seeing them and exploring for new ones. After years of traveling around chasing waves to surf , my wife and I had a lucky break at Vegas and Morgan won a bunch of money on black jack, it allowed us to buy my first camera and then with
meeting of Richard Johnson, one of SA's top photographers, in Mexico my life changed and photography became my new passion. I have been shooting professionally now for the last 5 years and in that time have got to experience some of the best times in my life. Traveling around the world chasing waves is definitely one of the best parts of my job. With South
Africa being one of most favourite places to go. Once a year I go there for about a month at a time. If I wasn't living here in Bali, SA would be my place of choice. Surf photography is a very tricky business to be in with so many guys calling themselves photographers today, but a little competition never hurt anyone. I freelance for all the major surf mags in the world as well as the surf companies. I use Canon gear and LiquidEye Waterhousings.
Cheers for taking the time to look at my profile.
Snowboarding is my 2nd passion. After 5 seasons in Vald'isere being the
first to leave your mark on the mountain still has that same feeling.
One of the so called secret spots in Bali. The best way into the wave is to jump your way in.
Padang Padang. this is an older shot. A few years ago when the WCT contest was here a Taiwanise fishing boat was washed in over the reef. Made for a good photo . But did that boat stink. Rotting fish everywhere
This is one of those lucky shots you get in the water. And still its one of my favourites. This is somewhere in Java.
Mikala Jones here another lucky shot but the angle is something if I tried not sure I could get it again.
Late afternoon, a secret right in Indo. Mikala Jones doing here what he does best.
Japanesse surfer Wakita is a funny man to shoot with. All by himself on this left while was shooting the right I turn around and there he is weaving his way through this.
Laurie Towner here at chops. This was my first time swimming there. Straight off a 48 hour trip from Bali to Tahati. That wave is such a fun
place to swim.
Garut local Kuta boy. Garut is know for his surfing and the way he can
drink beer. Here Garut and I have got it all worked out.
Rudy Palmbroom. its small Kermas but Rudy is such a brother it was easy
to get a shot out of nothing.
Walsh on one of his many trips. The classic angle to shoot. Being lazy
sometimes pays off.
Tai ' Buddha" Graham most people know him but when he isn't running
around the island and you have him in the water getting shots like this
become really easy.
Chris Leppan spend a few weeks out in Bali last season. Shooting with
Chris was well worth the effort.
Wok this shot to me just really gives you a good understand on how Wok
surfs. Just stoked to get a few waves and then head back to the beach. Haha
Beyrick is a funny man shooting with him is always fun. In and out of
Only Wok can pull something like this off.
Bruce Gold what would JBay be without him.
Smoking and Indo go together.
Sturat Kenndy surfing one of little hid away beaches. This shot really worked out well sometimes all the timing comes together.
Ry Craike here in Taiwan. This was such a cool place to shoot. Ry had it all to himself that day.
Lines up shots can make a shit wave look good, but this wave is really a perfect wave.
PNG groms differently have a nice wave in there backyard to grow up to.
I really like capturing these moments, Mj styling past me.
West Oz the land of slabs and big sharks lately.
This is me surfing in Mexico. My wife and I spent 4 months here and this where photography became my new passion.
Chilling in our dugout canoe. This was on a feral boat trip back in the days through the Ments. Funny thing we actually had to use this dugout to get to shore and back.
