"Do what you love"- that was the best piece of advice my father ever gave me. Many years ago I started my career in the television and documentary industry in order to pursue my passions. My passion for the ocean and wildlife set me on a path I have been fortunate to walk and so far I have been very lucky to be able to be successful in my career whilst waking up every morning to do what i actually love. The journey has taken me from the African bush to the deserts of the Middle East and there hasn’t been one moment that I ever regretted the path taken.

However, it is easy to get distracted in life and divert off course. I started to photograph because I needed to. I took up the hobby at a make or break time in my life. The events of my life had led me to a place where I needed fresh perspectives.

 

Photography became my therapy and time of healing, a place where I could express my own creativity on my own time and terms. It was a natural progression to take my photography to the sea. The ocean has always been a great inspiration to me and I have always been mesmerised by images of the ocean as long as I can remember. The moments of the sea and its fleeting beauty captivate and motivates me.

Recently, my photography has been inspired by what is happening below the surface. The moment a wave breaks following the energy it generates. I try and capture these moments by photographing swimmers, bodysurfer and surfers- the way they react and escape the forceful nature of the breaking wave. Those images, I feel, are graphic and emotive at the same time. I wanted every photo I took in this series to have a lasting impact. I wanted to tell a story about something that I’m passionate about as well as portray our important relationship with the ocean.

 

Each of the photos are made in a limited edition of 10 and will be sold signed and numbered. To buy, go to MY STORE or click on each photos above.
