08 Nov Saltwater Secrets: An insight into ocean and surf photography with Fuji

Source: Fuji X Passion

My name is Lou (@louloubphoto). I live in a beach town in New Zealand called Mount Maunganui, named after the extinct volcano just down the road. I’m originally from England but New Zealand is where I call home now. I work full time for a tech company and spend as much of my spare time as possible documenting the ocean and nature locally and across the region here in the North Island of New Zealand.

In my free time, I love to surf, go exploring to secluded spots and go on walks in nature where I can switch off – preferably somewhere the 4G is non-existent. I also practice yoga and meditation and value spending time with my partner, close friends and family.

I first got into photography as a way to document my travels, starting out with a very basic Canon point and shoot when I was 19. Curiosity naturally led me quickly to a DSLR and analog SLRs and I just practiced over the years. Now, at the age of 33, I sell prints of my photography and work with select eco-conscious brands with a sustainable vision, to shoot their product (which I never even imagined I’d be doing at the age of 30!)
