We have a gnarly treat for photography (and surfing) lovers this week – a gorgeous book featuring the winners and finalists of the Nikon/Surfing Australia Surf Photo of the Year Award from 2013 to 2017. The book is The Best of the Best: Australia's Greatest Surf Photographers – and we have THREE copies to give away this week!
An impressive addition to any coffee table, this is a beautifully designed, full-colour collection of the best Australian surfing photographers and their award-winning work. It also features an introduction from world champion surfer Stephanie Gilmore.
From the drama of Shipsterns to the cyclonic fury of an east coast low; sunrise at Cloudbreak and rainbows at Teahupo'o, this is an awe-inspiring collection of award-winning photographs showcasing all the energy, beauty and drama of the ocean. It reveals surfers like Gilmore, Florence, Fanning and Slater in their element and the power of a moment caught in time.
(And if you want to learn more about surf photography, hit up episode 186 of Valerie’s So you want to be a photographer podcast with Gina Milicia!)
So, with the ocean theme, this week we’d like to know what your favourite BEACH is in the whole wide world and WHY you love it (in 25 words or fewer). Our three favourite responses will each win a copy of this fabulous book!
