“Australian photographer Alex Tipple regularly gets beaten in the head with his 5kg underwater camera but with shots like this one, it’s definitely worth it. He captures split second, stunning images of swimmers and surfers emerging underwater just off the Australian coast.
The 29 year-old captures the precise moment a wave breaks and surfers are drawn under, resulting in images of stunning clarity with an interesting twist on abstract photography. Tipple decided to shoot these kind of images after becoming frustrated with “normal” surf photography.” (relentlessenergy.com)

“… Something that offers insight into what it takes to grind out a living as a water-based photographer in the surfing industry: a short experimental glimpse at a life lived in the shadow of obsessive photographic pursuits.”
Mickey Smith worked with Allan Wilson from the Astray Collective, who acted as Director of Photography on the project. Together they logged hours of footage across the Atlantic coastline, traveling around Ireland, Cornwall and Manchester. Shot in Super 16mm film, as well as groundbreaking work with Canon 5D mk11 Digital SLR, Smith also projected images of the huge walls of water within which he works, on to monster urban landscapes such as sky rises and castles in Manchester, as well as the cliff lines at his home of Ireland.”
