Over the past year, we’ve had some incredible photographers contribute to The Inertia. A few weeks ago, we ran a contest to find out which portfolio was your favorite, and after the voting had finished and the ballots had been counted, Ray Collins, a photographer from Eastern Australia, came out on top. We thought we’d ask Ray a few questions about his inspirations, reasons of success, advice for aspiring photographers, and the digitalization of surf photography. These are his answers, along with a few additional images.
How does it feel to be chosen as the winner for The Inertia’s 2014 Portfolio Challenge?
I feel pretty darn stoked! Stoked that people appreciate the time and effort that often goes into making a single image. Thanks to everyone who voted!
