I shoot mostly all along the Cronulla Beach front as well as Voodoo, Shark Island, The Point, Solander and even Kurnell Point when it's on. I don't travel overseas much anymore (or not at all since COVID times) so enjoy just shooting locally.

To view the slideshows CLICK ON the RED PHOTOS BUTTON in the Menu Bar at the top of this page. There are many more images in the Slideshows than appear on my Instagram/Facebook posts

I only shoot for fun now and no longer shoot commercially though I do sell image prints on request and can make images available for commercial use if required (see below).

I have lived and surfed in Cronulla my whole life so I do have a good idea what swells work best for the different breaks around Cronulla. I don't shoot everyday, usually only when the surf is good. I generally prefer the afternoons because the light is front lit though I can be found out early in the mornings shooting if the conditions are on. These days I am generally shooting from the beach with my Canon gear and "The Mad Huey", my black and white border collie by my side.

I post some of the images from each shoot on Instagram within 24 hours of shooting. Here is a link to my Surf Images Instagram page

The remainder of the images wil be posted here in high resolution as a slide show throughout the month. Check the Photos link in red at the top of this page for a list of the slideshows.

Dylan Longbottom, Sunday afternoon 17 October 2021

Dylan surfing Sandshoes his home break when he was a grommet growing up in Cronulla. Dylan has gone full circle once again living back in Cronulla after living and surfing all around the world plying his trade as both a sponsored Billabong surfer and now one of the most respected surfboard shapers for both big and small waves.

Jan Casaceli surfing OTW, Friday morning 1 October 2021

Jan surfing a glassy wall at Off the Wall along the Elouera end of the wall. I first met Jan nearly 30 years ago at Caringbah pool when we were both in Kev Neilson's  swim squad. If Jan is not out surfing or swimming in the ocean she can be often seen walking the Cronulla beach front with her dog Lulu always stopping for a chat with just about everone that walks past.   Being a long time Cronulla resident Jan knows just about everybody in Cronulla.
