DMAG: How did you know you wanted to be a surf pho­tog­ra­pher? AG: “I just re­ally en­joy do­ing it! I also en­joy see­ing how stoked peo­ple get when I show them a cool photo I took of them.” DMAG: Shoot­ing from land or wa­ter? AG: “Wa­ter! You get a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive that most non-surfers don’t see very of­ten, plus there are a lot more an­gles to snap!” DMAG: What’s your fa­vorite sub­ject to shoot?

AG: “Trav­el­ling the world with body board­ers and surfers! I’d love to take pho­tos for mag­a­zines or web­sites and sell can­vases and prints to peo­ple. DMAG: Best su­per­hero to pho­to­graph? AG: “Spi­der-Man all the way! Peter Parker knows his way around a cam­era and I’m sure he’d be happy to let me take a few snaps!” DMAG: What’s a cool way to cus­tomise your cam­era? AG: “Putting stick­ers on your lenses or your cam­era body can look pretty cool!” DMAG: Weird­est an­i­mal you’d like to pho­to­graph? AG: “Tur­tles!”
