Community by Walrus Photos
There is a thriving surf community here in Cornwall and it is a great feeling swimming out to capture that through photographs. It’s not about getting the all time photo or the magazine cover shot but about celebrating in each other’s waves. I can’t say I don’t get excited if a shot does make it to print though.
Some cold winter days, weather conditions come together here. And at the end of a day in the water, we’ll look back through the shots together, laughing at the wipeouts and getting excited at the best barrels.
Of course when the surf is good, there are moments when I’ll jump in for a quick surf too, but it’s the shared joy of capturing friend’s waves that keeps me going back out with my camera in hand.

Very few photographers that I know distinguish themselves through a dedication to documenting the community and comradery of surfing, from an in-water perspective. Walrus achieves this in spades, with a sympathy and sensitivity that sets him apart from the norm.
