My name is Aidan Gunn, I started taking photos when I moved to the Sunshine Coast from Victoria. I brought a gopro to film my mates skating, although not long after I was blessed with some good swell around home.
As far as years go, 2018 was fantastic. I was able to spend 5 months in the Sunshine Coast, a month in Indo, a few weeks in Tassie and a couple months at home... But sadly, I only had my crappy little $3 op shop point and shoot film camera to journey with me.
Hey I'm Jake. A fairly normal 22 year old guy based in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, QLD. My passion is being around the ocean and shooting film, tending to squeeze a sneaky wave in whenever I have the opportunity, sloppy or not (mostly always sloppy).
I’m Adrian. I reside in Newcastle NSW. I utilise the ocean to stay youthful, awake and smiling. Like most of us. If it's pumping I probably missed 'the shot' by paddling out.
It’s a burst of colour in random moments. With vivid sunsets etched into the back of your eyeballs with fire laced skies.
Light leaks, double exposure, soft & warm, fuzzy & muddled. Happy accidents, film developed on top of a forgotten roll.
URBNSURF (urbnsurf.com, @urbnsurf), Australia’s leading surf park developer, announced that the construction of its ‘URBNSURF Melbourne’ surfing lagoon is nearing completion, and is on track to be pumping out perfect waves at its Melbourne Airport, Tullamarine location around Easter 2019.
Throughout the past couple of years of waves, the one constant that never dissolved was shooting film. My Nikon F3 has been through it all with me capturing all the turbulent and wonderful rides.
I’m constantly experimenting, filtering out the negatives, embracing the positives. In the past 12 months I’ve finally managed to get in the water with the camera and that’s just brought a whole new aspect into my photography.
The culture surfing creates anywhere around the world is something that’s addictive and so inclusive. That’s essentially what I try to capture in my shots and what I’m sure many surfers can relate to.
