West Coast Boardriders Event 4

On Saturday I shot the West Coast Boardriders event, held at Big Bay. It was the most stunning day at the beach and I really enjoyed shooting this contest. I witnessed some spectacular surfing go down; in fact, the event turned into a bit of an airshow. Here are some of my favourite shots from the day. The rest will be uploaded into an album on my Facebook page.

Ice Cream Headaches

Hello Summer! The fact that we've had a South East wind pumping for over a week now, coupled with the fact that I just saw my first Christmas Beetle, means Summer has finally arrived in South Africa! The other thing that the South East wind brings is an amazing crystal clear ocean, which is also exceptionally cold. While the water may look beautiful and inviting, step your toes in and you won't feel them for a few hours after. Here are my shots covering the first official Summer sessions at two of our most beautiful beaches.

[PUBLISHED WORK] Zigzag Photo Journal 2012

If there's one thing my photography career to date has taught me, it's that dreams do come true. And that's exactly how I felt when I found out my photograph was being used for the intro to this year's Zigzag Surfing Magazine Photo Journal. I remember buying my first Zag photo journal and paging through it, in awe of the photographs, and only dreaming that I would one day have a photograph worthy of being included in this publication. I feel totally honoured to be included among some of the most talented surf photographers South Africa has to offer. A massive thank you to an incredible photographer and mentor, Alan van Gysen, and the rest of the Zag team for choosing to include my photograph this year. Buy a copy now, available from most CNA's, Exclusive Books and surf stores I think. If anything, you don't want to miss the feature on AvG's Namibia photographs - totally inspiring and just down right incredible.

P.S. While you're at it, go and cast your vote for Zigzag's Surf Photo of the Year. Some incredible shots that deserve a vote - do it!
