WE ARE GOLD COAST

OUR BEAU­TI­FUL BACK­YARD THROUGH THE LENS OF OUR LO­CALS #weare­gold­coast

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - PEOPLE EYE - STEVE WYPER @salt­ed­shut­ter

Orig­i­nally from Scot­land where the wa­ter is a bit colder, Steve’s been liv­ing in Aus­tralia for five years. “There’s a huge amount of tal­ented pho­tog­ra­phers here. Much of my drive is a di­rect re­sult of see­ing their amaz­ing work.”

Sun­rise surfer: I’m a keen surfer although not re­ally that good. The guys I surf with have all made their way into my im­ages at one point or an­other.

Sea of flames: I get so ob­sessed with pho­tograph­ing the ocean. I of­ten turn up when it’s still dark chas­ing im­ages like this.

Ocean mist on par­adise: I don’t of­ten have land­marks in my scenes but Surfers Par­adise and Broad­beach cre­ate such a beau­ti­ful sky­line.

Molten: There’s noth­ing bet­ter than slip­ping in­side these mini bar­rels as the sun sets over the Gold Coast.

Ele­phant Rock: I find it very dif­fi­cult to cre­ate com­po­si­tions here yet I find my­self vis­it­ing of­ten.

Sense of calm: Re­cently my work has taken a turn. I’ve been en­joy­ing cre­at­ing shape and tex­ture.

All shook up: When cy­clone swells hit the Goldie, I can’t keep away.
