When did your passion for photography begin?

At the age of fifteen I picked up my first camera to document my friends skateboarding and was instantly hooked. Ten years later and I find the ocean, surfing, and the adventures they present to me are where my true passions lie within photography.

Sometimes it can be hard work and exhausting always traveling and moving around with gear but I wouldn’t change anything for the world.

What is your experience from using our waterproof bag on your travels?

The Pro Drybag has been great on my travels, especially when it comes to shooting surf.

Quite often I will have to be on a jetski or hop off a boat and swim to shore a bit to be able to shoot. In these situations, the bag is perfect for keeping all my valuable camera equipment dry and protected.

Bonus feature is it also makes a super comfy seat/backrest for those long waits in the airport or on the road.
