The ocean for me is my utopia. It’s where I like to float, clear my mind on things and use my creativity to capture my perspective! To be in the right spot at the right time (like this image) and to hit that shutter button at a view like this, you have the best feeling knowing you may of nailed an awesome shot. Adrenaline sets in when big waves are peaking out the back, you’re getting thrown underwater as you dive, and you’re trying to position yourself for that perfect sunset shot, praying that you got the timing, light and positioning, right as it passes by within a blink!
Surf photography for me is my passion, as it’s not standing there setting your camera on a tripod! It’s getting amongst the action, and challenging yourself to make the ocean look beautiful, raw and powerful all at once! Using all your energy to get to swim through the currents and under waves just to nail a perfect shot! The results do pay off when you put in the hard yards out there!” – Josh Sim
