Where do you come from ?
I am from Sydney Australia
Could you describe you in few lines?
Just a normal guy capturing moments in my life from my point of view and how i saw these moments take place
Where do you live? Is it cool ?And Why it is cool?
live in Sydney Australia its a lucky place to grow up in my opinion. Your central to a massive city with a good skate scene and on the other hand you have got a coastline which contains pumping waves
Could you tell me when and how did you get the urge to make pics? I find yours pics really beautiful.
From a young age i have always taken photos whether it has been from family holidays to photos of my friends skating or bodyboarding, but only recently have i taken it seriously
You took the course or is a natural gift?Your influences in this area?
I have not taken any courses, so i guess its a natural gift. Most of my influences come from the photographers throughout Europe wether it be skateboarding or bodyboarding their always getting in the right spot at the right time and deliver the shot in a unique way
You started directly from the photo action / sport?
No iv only recently been getting out in the water with a housing, before that i just stuck to land photography
What inspires you most?
The feeling you get when you capture that perfect photo after a solid day of shooting, that feeling just leaves you on a high for the whole day no matter how tired you are
Is there a cliché especially important in your eyes, an image that symbolizes more than it is? Or
all your photos they all convey a story in their own way?
One of the main reasons i take photos is because i want to document that exact day from my point of view
This job requires a lot of implications, dedication and sometimes sacrifices, what advice would you give to someone who wants to follow in your footsteps?
The more time that you put in trying to capture that perfect shot, the more you will get out of that experience in the long run
One or more anecdote (s) on the joys and dangers of life as a photographer of surf?
Yes their are a lot of dangers in surf photography your basically sitting in the breaking zone to capture those moments with those amazing waves, so i guess you could say that the joys of getting those moments in photographic form do overcome the dangers that your putting your self in to every time you jump into the ocean with a camera
Do you have a website where we ca see your pics ?
Most of my photos are uploaded through my Facebook, Instagram and My youtube channel, so if your keen on seeing my work be more than welcome to hit them up!
