PHOTOGRAPHER RUSSELL ORD
I remember the first time I started to shoot from the water, it was a perfect day in Margaret River with incredible light, offshore winds, glassy conditions, a crowded line-up and surfers hassling for position, I had no one around me, I could hear and feel all the elements, it was like I was the only one in the ocean, it was a type of peace, calm before the storm, the photos were actually terrible, the feelings lasted for weeks its those initial impressions I strive for again and again many years later.
Through photography I have met so many amazing people, everyone has a story to tell, the recently retiree who has worked for the last forty years, and is now travelling solo around Australia, a life long dream, the rescue at Mavericks which has turned into a friendship that families would be proud of, story after story which have transpired from the camera, documented moments and experiences in time that have become far more than a print on the wall and a cover of a magazine.
