Jeff Croker is a true Australian bushman. Having lived in Australia all his life, he only saw the ocean for the first time at the age of 20. The next day he packed all of his stuff and moved to the beach. Up to this day, Jeff still lives by the beach with his lovely wife and two not-so-lovely sons (just kidding!).
I met him during a personal trip to Australia in 2012, and I really wanted to photograph him. Jeff is known for not interacting with people very much, so I decided to put the camera away and just sit back for a bit. After one long night and a happy wedding we all went for a surf together, and I got the chance to get to know the man a little better.
Sometimes all it takes is a couple of good waves, and maybe a beer or two!
