My name is Adam, I am a school teacher, an adventurer, am addicted to being outdoors and love to capture it all!
I am a dedicated photographer born and bred in Sydney, Australia specialising in surf, waves, sunrises and living in the moment.
When I was a child the waves freaked me out. One day as I braved the waters, I ducked in and was kidnapped by a group of rogue mermaids who taught me to love the ocean and everything in it. Since then, its love has been deeply instilled in me.
Photography has been a passion of mine going back to when Santa brought me a Polaroid i-zone camera. Since then, digital has taken over and although the technology has developed (pun intended), I'm still fascinated by the photography process and seeing it all unfold.
My favourite time of the day is the crack of dawn, it is simply magical. The sun, sand, surf, colours, people, sounds and smells...it hugs you like a warm blanket or slaps you awake on a frigid winter morning.
The ability to photograph the beauty around me and share it with you is a dream come true!
I am based out of Sydney, Australia and you can't really keep me away from the water; spring, summer, autumn or winter you will most likely find me hanging out at Bondi Beach.
Follow me as I catch the next wave @heatwaves.australia and if you see my bald head bobbing in the water, come in and say hi!
