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.

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.

Joey Sear and Hayden Blair surfing behind the North Cronulla Rock Pool.
I was up at Greenhills Beach walking Huey, my border collie and shooting the windsurfers when I noticed this guy out surfing with his buddy on this lefthander that was peeling all the way through to the shore.
Harrison Martin on one of the bigger ones at Elouera during the afternoon surf giving his Pato (PCC) twinnie a good workout. CLICK HERE to view the images from the afternoon.
Glenn Pringle at the EBC Contest talking about his new Rod Dahlberg Twin Fin (with stabiliser) that Rod designed in collaboration with the great Mark Richards.
Chris, the original King of Shark Island. Chris was the first King of the Island in a time when it was considered only the brave and the fool hardy would surf out there. He had more covers on surf mags than anyone surfing the Island. Chris has worked most of his life as a Cronulla Professional Lifeguard and is still on the job today. Chris would take his "training time" when the Island was on and just dominate the place on his Jackson surfboard. This image was shot in 2009 but Chris first started to dominate the Island in the 70s and was still out there 40 years later.

Jarvis dropping into a left at the Island. This image was a bit of a fluke. I was shooting at North Cronulla and saw a wave coming in at the Island - I swung my 800mm lens around to get a shot of what I thought was an empty right hander. It was not until I opened the images on my PC that I realised there was a surfer going left. It was unmistakenly Jarvis.
Kipp laying one over early morning at the Elouera Rip Bowl. I first meet Kipp when he was just 12 years old. He was living in Ulladulla and even then charging big waves with his dad and their jet ski. I had some memorable experinces with them exploring many of the hidden surf break gems along that part of the coast, many of which still remain hidden today.
Grace Gosby breaking out the Summer gear a bit too early.
From down the South Coast, Charli can often be seen surfing around Cronulla in the afternoons as part of Matt Griggs' surf squad
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.
Jarvis Earl surfing Elouera in the afternoon light. I much prefer shooting in the afternoon becuase the waves are front lit much like shooting in a light studio. This image is a great example of why I like the afternoon light
This image was shot at Wairo Beach when I had a home at Dolphin Point, Ulladulla. Back in the day this beach break was my go to spot to get away from the crowds. No matter how small the swell was elsewhere this spot would always be a foot or two bigger.
This image was shot with a Canon 5D MkII DSLR and a Canon 15mm f2.8 Fisheye lens.
These images are from The Wayback Files. They have been shot around Cronulla and on the South Coast around Ulladulla.
