It's been 12 years since I started shooting professional surfing for a living with the @wsl and I've spent the past 9 years shooting every single event on the World Tour. It has been the most incredible journey! I have been fortunate enough to work alongside some of the most talented people, shoot the very best athletes and see some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I am beyond grateful for the opportunities I have had. But it's time for a new challenge and so I am hanging up my WSL pass.
In 2017 I will be turning my lens and my passion away from the surf and focusing on the environment with conservation company @wild.ark. Having grown up in South Africa, wildlife was my earliest passion and at a time when the planet needs us most, I couldn't be more excited to start focussing my energy in this direction. I'll probably be posting less wave shots from now on but stay tuned for more updates in 2017, hopefully from somewhere wild .
