About Russell Ord
I do not want to take a combination of good surf photos over time, I also don’t want to remember myself for just being in the channel at the right time and right place capturing the surfers 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 surfers name or reputation but because of the position I put myself in to capture the moment in time, an amazing view of the ocean that can not be captured without an element of risk, its taken me years to actually find my niche within my photography and now I have its such a great place to be in.
