Growing up in Fiji I spent most of my childhood surrounded by the ocean. Fast forward 20 years ... 1 husband and 2 children later, I've blissfully stepped back in time. Who would have even imagined that an insatiable passion for longboarding would uncover a slight talent for photography. Constantly learning, all I hope to do is to replicate what I can see in front of me .. the undeniable beauty of the ocean & all who are in it, radiant in all it's colours and textures. This is my happy place.
It just seemed natural to pick up a camera and capture what I hoped, was the beauty and colours of what lay before me.
I've met and been part of such an amazing network of surfers & legends, that I now call friends. I've gone from sitting quietly on rocks when the conditions turn on to now immersing myself in the ocean capturing and feeling that incredible stoke that comes from similar minded humans. It's never work, it's just fun. As soon as I hit the water, whether I'm surfing or taking photos I leave everything behind and I'm lost in the beauty of the ocean. At times the hardest part is deciding do I surf myself or capture the images of this unfolding day !!
The journey has led to editorials and photos in a few magazines ... Carve, The Bay Magazine & Pacific Longboarder Magazine - huge hugs to John Brasen for seeing something in my images. Bravely throwing myself at swimwear shoots and skin care - thank you to Sunhaze, Tall Poppy, Piping Hot & Wendy Christina for trusting me !! And even a wedding .. small yet it seemed to work !! And to those amazing individuals out there that have trusted me with their vulnerability and let me capture the beauty in their surfing ... thank you .. the inspiration comes from everyone dancing in front of my lens and for that I am forever grateful.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions in regards to purchasing any images, organising a photo shoot or just saying hello !!
