Sean Evans, founder of WaterWorkMedia. Sean picked up his first camera in 2011. He began using it as a training tool to document himself and a few buddies while on surf adventures. By 2014 he found himself shooting more and surfing less…. a lot less. In 2015 he landed one of the biggest gigs yet. The lead photographer for the International Surfing Association. This brought him further around the world, introducing more and more cultures.

We asked Shayne some questions about his recent stint at the Macaronis Surf Resort in the Ments as well as his first experience at the URBNSURF lagoon in Melbourne.
