My inspiration for photography comes, that "Beyond the horizon" there are endless possibilities for outcomes. To reach this state of consciousness we must always be very well balanced and also meditation helps me a lot.
Sometimes I catch myself thinking why we as humans believe in things as if they were real while “not real” things are everywhere and could be more real than we actually think.
I start each day in the ocean, in the dark. Nothing but camera and flippers, 50-100m off Manly Beach. You see, I'm waiting for the sun to pop its head over the horizon, to capture it’s warming rays reflecting off the ocean’s ripples at dawn.

It’s Late Night and you’re in bed already. You can’t sleep, you keep on Looking at your phone, checking for the last time the Forecast. This time it looks like is the good swell.

I grew up in a town about 40 miles from LA and about the same distance from the local beaches, Newport and Huntington. When I was about 7 or so, mom would throw me and my two brothers, both older than me, and their friends and often my cousins, into the back of our pickup truck (no seatbelt laws back then) and drive us to the beach.
Days are weird right now. My name is Bronwyn and I live in San Francisco, California. For the past few weeks, my city has felt the impact of COVID-19 and our lives have come to a screeching hault as we all practice social distancing and shelter in place.
Hey there, my name is Jesus Salazar, my family and friends call me Chuy (Chewie as it sounds in English). I was born in Ensenada, Baja California, this is where Mexican surfing started about 60 or 70 years ago. I'm proud we have a solid surf/skateboarding scene here in our small town.
My name is Helio Antonio and I’m a photographer from Nazare, Portugal. Photography appeared in my life when I got into surfing and felt this urge to take pictures of the waves. I was dazzled by perfect barrels and wanted to capture the beauty of what i was watching in the water.
My name is Dom and I live in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney’s south. Married with two boys, I work as a graphic designer full time. I started photography about two years ago purely as a hobby and since then it's pretty much become an obsession. I go out every weekend and on weekdays when I can.
Well it all started as grom, learning how to read and surf waves on a body board at the ripeful age of 7. Seeing people standing up got me curious, so I started standing up on my body board.
When I returned home from Japan in March the reality and impact of the Covid-19 virus situation hit me. It was really affecting Australians and daily life. It’s only been 8 weeks since we saw the first wave of surge buying in supermarkets. There are still many basic products unavailable.
For two weeks we put life on pause and enjoyed a nomadic surfer’s fantasy as we drove down the coast of Baja. The roads were desolate, endless, and empty. Joshua trees and cacti spanned the horizon; home was worlds away.
My name is Ollie Whitham, I’m 18 and I was born and raised in Fremantle, a little port city, just south of Perth, Western Australia. Having bought my first DSLR, I quickly became intrigued with capturing the natural world in the form of landscapes and animals.
