The summer afternoons here in Puerto Escondido are like a mixed plate of tacos. Storms may accumulate over the adjoining mountain range & sweep out to sea as fast as they formed.
I’m sure when people from around the globe think of England they do not think of white sand beaches and surfing. That’s why I wanted to put together a few images from the corner of England where I dwell, showing off the surf and the surf community that I love being a part of.
My dad always has a camera attached to his hip. I remember him snapping an endless number of photos of family vacations and holidays. Even today he only uses film and still print all of his photos… seriously – EVERY. SINGLE. PHOTO.
These two defining characteristics of myself sometimes feel as though they’re mutually exclusive and make it hard to find that balance of happiness on each end. I sometimes don’t know what to focus on when its offshore and firing.
The faint memories I have of last summer on the Surf Coast were 1ft child’s play and weeks of relentless onshore wind with only mere ripples to photograph.
Photography to me is about the simplicity and making the subject minimal.
I don’t know where I really started on my photography journey. But here I am now.
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” — Henry David Thoreau, Walden Pond, MA.
My name is Juan Pablo, I'm 35 years old. My hometown is Punta del Este, Uruguay. I have been working as a lifeguard for 16 years and become a photographer about 5 years ago.
I have found that there is a fine line between balance and sanity. And photography has been the foundation for allowing me to come to that conclusion.
As a long time passionate climber, I tend to always fall in love with lines. Lines that can be everything from a 3000 foot rock pillar, to a short crack splitting a boulder. And it’s always the lines that draws my attention.
My name is Hayley O’Connor and I’m an Illustrator, Graphic Designer and most recently a novice photographer after realising my passion for water photography.
Growing up in a rural town south from Barcelona’s coast line, yet upholding a Dutch nationality. Family spread around the globe; from Israel to Switzerland, France to Miami - name it. We are all nomads at the end of the day.
A wave. This thing is so intangible when you live in Switzerland. You have to travel, or wait for a storm that will transform alpine lakes in tiny oceans.
I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season. Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells.
I have been shooting film for quite some time, finding myself quickly falling in love with its aesthetic and the meticulous process that is rewarded with a captured moment, a still frame of our increasingly fast moving time.
