Foam Burst – photographing foam

I’ve always loved to photograph waves, right from my very first picture back in october of 1977. For me, it’s not so important for the wave to be a perfect tube or not. I’m just into really different looking things, so I like it when I can step outside the box a bit and apply […]


Working for yourself can feel very rewarding

I’ve always partially worked for myself even long before I went out on my own at the age of 30.

The 10 best world champion surfers of all time

I was talking with a friend about the ten best surfers on the planet and I was thinking how impossible, it felt to pick just 10 as it’s not really set in stone. There’s so many factors that governs one choices. At least with actual world champions, it is set in stone, so it was […]

Locals day on Hobart’s amazing pointbreaks, in Tasmania

Being a Tasmanian myself, I like to head back there around Autumn time each year as it is one of my absolute favourite places to shoot photos. On my 2006 trip with Mark Healey, Jamie Sterling and the Long bro’s, we scored the extremely elusive Hobart point-breaks on what many were calling the best point-break […]

Mason Ho takes the cover of The Surfers Path No 73

I travelled with Mason Ho, Flynn Novak And Ezra Sitt all from Hawaii in Tasmania this year. Our visit coincided with some damn tasty waves, especially at Bluff Reef. Mason surfed the place like no one else, consistently placing himself behind the peak on Take-off. This led to a few pretty intense take-offs, one of […]
