I love waves, I like watching them I like drawing them and I love riding them, although I don’t ride them much anymore due to time and I am usually shooting them, but I do hope to change that. Like most people who love waves it starts at a young age. For me it started with small waves lapping against the shores of Rosebud front beach in Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay.
Soon after I was introduced to body boarding and I remember my dad coaxing me to catch some waves at Sorrento Back Beach. From then on I was hooked. Growing up we would surf at all of the beaches around the Mornington Peninsula and read surf mags and watch the Endless Summer movies 100 times imagining riding all the amazing waves we would see.
Growing up I would always dream about perfect waves in the weirdest places, I grew up in a house that backed onto a school and I always dreamt that the footy oval was a lake with perfect barreling waves. I have been dreaming about places like Kelly Slaters wave pool my whole life, my favourite dreams were finding lakes that were surrounded by rainforest.
So by now you can see that I have aways loved waves, after all that is what got me into photography. There are so many places around this World that I still would love to shoot, obvious places like Teahupoo, Pipeline, some amazing places in Ireland and all over Australia, to be honest there are to many amazing waves to list.
Living on the Gold Coast I am very spoilt, we have numerous World class waves up and down the coast. My favourite wave here would have to be Kirra Point when it is on, The waves are so long and the shape is amazing and the light in the afternoon is amazing for photos.
I have put together 50 images of empty waves for your enjoyment, this is Volume one, Enjoy!
