“Its more than just moments in time, its about the connection with people and the environment, creating content that reflects this very essence” – Russell Ord.
The first time I picked up an old camera and took a few photos of my mates surfing, I never once imagined that my life and work would revolve around the ocean, I am truly humbled.
Contemplating lifestyle and the environment has to led my family to a number of personal changes and no doubt another incredible journey of exploration is around the corner.
All the sensors are highlighted when swimming in the ocean alone while documenting the oceans raw beauty, its a type of peace that I am truly grateful for.
The greatest reward while travelling for work is meeting new people and having the opportunity to tell their stories through a photo.
