There are amazing moments happening in and around the water on a daily basis, but being there to capture them is sometimes more right-place-right-time than anything.
Sure it still takes skill to capture them, but it’s hard to build a solid portfolio when your ideology is based around fluke imagery.In southern AustraliaI
In early Winter 2015, I set out to capture something unique that would accurately portray the relationship of a bunch of young local surfers with the ocean.
If this doesn’t scream youthful, boldly-ambitious, testosterone-infused recklessness, with hints of appreciation and photographic sensibility thrown in, then I don’t know what does.

The flash double tow was basically an adaption to Laurent Pujol’s original double tow concept, in which a photographer is towed into the wave by a jet ski, behind the surfer, riding a surfboard themselves.
I am proud to present these images and I hope you can appreciate them.
