My Beach Series shares my engagement with the Australian tradition of body surfing and continues my love affair with painterly photography. After every shot I was caught by the wave and tumbled around in the surf but, with the advent of high resolution small cameras, I was able to modify an underwater housing that allowed me to capture the joys and spirit of this pursuit in an almost impressionistic way without injuring myself or others.  Except for  grading and cropping, none of these photos have been touched in photoshop … the visual effect has been 100% achieved in camera.
