The Inertia

Chris Grundy. He’s not the guy in the shower.

I am a freelance photographer based in Sydney. Currently 20 years old, I love to shoot both digital and film. I have always had a passion for the ocean and its surroundings, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I picked up a camera and started documenting the coastal environment. I would have to say my favorite place to shoot locally is on Sydney’s northern beaches. There are so many little pockets that make up that stretch of coastline which I have found myself revisiting including the likes of Turimetta, Mona Vale and Narrabeen. I would have to say Turimetta would be a favorite for sure.

I also love to travel. I booked a trip to India the other day leaving at the end of the year with a mate for a month. It will be a great opportunity to expand my portfolio and I’m also thinking about producing a little book from my encounters on the trip. I’m really looking forward to it! So many people have an influence on the work I produce and I constantly view the work of others and draw inspiration from them. Just to name a few: Morgan Maassen, Ray Collins, Chris Burkard, Alex Marks, Trent Mitchell, Pearce Leal, Jack Dekort, Nathan Oldfield, Ryan Heywood, Dane Singleton and many more.
