Statement of Intent
When I was younger I enjoyed participating in a variety of extreme sports. Now a little older, I prefer to capture these sporting moments of windsurfing and surfing within my photography.
I particularly enjoy capturing water sports in stormy, inclement weather conditions, revealing the raw power of the sea, with a little subtle lighting. These sports are about enjoying the challenging conditions presented by the sea, with windsurfers and surfers enjoying the very strong wind and waves to enhance their action and performance.
In this panel I have sought to capture the atmosphere of rough stormy sea conditions and to freeze the action in both disciplines. I have tried to highlight the variety of skills, concentration and determination displayed by the windsurfers and surfers, along with the stark, stormy weather conditions and remoteness. To achieve this I have mainly used colour images along with a selection of monochrome surfing images.
