I’m based in Margaret River, Western Australia with my beautiful wife Catherine and three kids Kalani, Tavian and Ayla.
I am an ex-fireman by trade, and my journey into surf photography started 15 years ago when I injured my knee surfing. Instead of sitting on the couch for three months I picked up a camera and spent the days at the beach shooting friends. That injury transformed my life, a passion for photography was born and now I love to capture the beauty of the sea.
My main focus over the past seven years has been to steer clear of the crowds, explore the rugged Western Australian coastline, swim into some of the heaviest waves imaginable and push my photographic boundaries in waves of consequence. I have moved away from capturing every single moment, and now I'm just trying to get that one moment that's challenging to me.
So that means swimming right into impact zone, my whole life revolves around that journey; what I eat, how I breathe and how I train.
