Grow­ing up on the Gold Coast means a life on the beach and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve been shoot­ing waves for more than four years now and I’m so glad I’m able to show a unique per­spec­tive of the beauty of our beaches to peo­ple all over the world.

Break­ing news: I love show­ing the Gold Coast and the world what beauty the ocean has to show off. Some peo­ple go their whole lives not know­ing what a break­ing wave looks like from be­hind. I’m so happy I’m able to share these im­ages.

Un­der cover: There is some­thing so el­e­gant yet pow­er­ful about the way surfers will duck dive di­rectly un­der a heav­ily bar­relling wave.

Arvo gold: For this af­ter­noon shot I headed south to a se­cret spot that only a hand­ful of wave pho­tog­ra­phers know about.

Head’s up: Shoot­ing at Snap­per Rocks is al­ways an ex­cit­ing and dan­ger­ous out­ing for any pho­tog­ra­pher.

Fish-eye view: The south­ern end of the Gold Coast would have to be my favourite area to shoot waves.

La­goon life: On a stay­ca­tion at Surfers Par­adise Mar­riott, I fell into a bro­mance with the lo­cal puffer fish.

North Burleigh: This is where it all started for me and my pho­tog­ra­phy jour­ney more than four years ago.
