Having been surfing for over 40 years I really don’t have many photos of myself out in the water. Many surfers I talk to say the same. Some just want a nice shot of themselves in a simple frame. Others use them to improve their technique. It doesn’t really matter one way or the other. Hopefully if you see me on the beach, come and say hello and I may get that treasured shot of you on a nice wave.
I first started surfing in the very early 70’s as a school kid growing up on the Northern Beaches. Whilst in 6th form (Year 12) I developed a keen interest in photography.
Back then it was vastly different than it is now. I mainly used Black and White film, developing and printing my own photos to exhibit and compete.
I love the ocean and taking photos of its beauty and those riding the waves around the Northern Beaches. Everyday I see its vastly differing shapes, colour and power.
So I thought I would combine the two and take …. Surf Photos of You.
The other dynamic half of Surf Photos of You, is my wife, Suzy aka @mrsspoy, who has developed an impressive talent for sunrises, sunsets and any member of the animal kingdom that finds itself within the beachscapes we visit (particularly birds). Check her CoastalWatch award winning ‘Sailfish’ wave pic captured at Narrabeen, demonstrating her patience and the keen eye of the accomplished photog she is.
