Surf Photographer Russell Ord

A portrait of the artist: surf photographer Russell Ord.

I do not want to take a combination of good surf photos over time. Nor do I want do I want to be remembered for just being in the channel at the right time and right place capturing the surfer’s wave of a lifetime. Because in the end, that’s easy. As a photographer I want to remember myself for taking that “one” photo –  not because of the surfer’s name or reputation, but because of the position I put myself in to capture the moment in time.

An amazing view of the ocean cannot be captured without an element of risk; It’s taken me years to find my niche within my photography, and now that I have, it’s such a great place to be.
